Happy, happy birthday, Allie.
One year old today. Wow. Did that ever fly by.
You are a special, funny, little...person now. No longer an infant, not really a toddler yet, just an awesome, little person. One that I can never ever resist picking up (who could when those chunky arms are raised in the air just begging for kisses?). Something just doesn't feel right if you are not chilling on my right hip.
You are changing every single day...especially these last few weeks. Eating everything we put in front of you now. Finally! Getting into everything. Everything. (I am so not used to this, we didn't really have to babyproof at all with Ella.) Dancing, pulling up, saying "Ella" and "yep". You are an amazing little lady. I love that I am your mom and have the privilege of watching you grow and change into who you are supposed to become. Happy Birthday, Alice!
You definitely have the head nod down.
