Happy Birthday, Aubrey

I can't believe that my baby is a year old. It seems impossible that a year has gone by since my little girl was born. Aubrey has grown into such a sweet, mischievous little imp. She smiles at the drop of a hat, she giggles and babbles whenever she's awake, and she gives the sweetest kisses ever, without even having to be asked. But in the next moment, she'll pull your hair and say "Ow!" and laugh, or she'll yank my glasses off of my nose with a laugh. She has a dramatic streak that cracks me up and makes me worry for the future. Aubrey is so curious, something she has carried from birth--when she was just a baby, her eyes would follow anything and everyone around the room, always moving and watching. Now, her head will whip around to watch something that catches her eye and she will quickly crawl over to investigate something new. I love to see her little personality emerge more and more each day. It breaks my heart to watch her grow so quickly, though.

Happy Birthday, my sweet princess. You are loved more than you can ever comprehend. I thank God daily for blessing me with such a sweet, loving, beautiful daughter, and I am so excited to see the woman you will one day grow into. I love you!
