Happy 1st Birthday
I'll admit from the start that I'm a little weepy today. I simply can't believe a whole year has flown by since the day we welcomed our sweet little girl into our lives! I was feeling it last night too, remembering how we were getting ready to go to the hospital and were SO EXCITED!
Lila has been a constant joy in our lives! She is just the sweetest baby and even on the days when you feel like pulling your hair out, she'll give you one of her silly looks or do something cute that absolutely melts your heart and it makes all that other stuff not really matter.
I love her in so many ways, for so many things. I love her beautiful blonde hair that looks like it's glowing in the sunlight. I love her blue eyes that are the exact shade as her Daddy's. I love the fact that she is an outgoing, independant little person that loves to explore. I love her chubby little cheeks, and hands, and feet. I love her goofy little giggle that sounds like she's laughing at a bad joke! I love her sweet smile, even with her crooked, snaggly teeth... it just makes it that much more adorable! The list could go on and on, but I won't because I'm just about in tears now and you don't need to read any more of my sappiness.
Last year, at 4:54am, after a mere 22 hours of labor, Lila Kate Volovsek was welcomed into this world. She has continued to be a source of love and contentment to me. I know it's cliche', but you truly never understand how you can love one little person so much! She is amazing. Yep, she rocks my world!!! Happy Birthday baby girl! Mommy and Daddy love you SOOOO MUCH!
