Happy Birthday Ayla!!!

Yes, today is Ayla's 1st birthday. I am happy but sad at the same time. My little Sweet Pea is growing up. I can't believe she is 1.

She weighs 18 lbs and is 28 3/4 inches long. She gained a pound and she grew 1/4 of an inch. So she is growing. She is just little. She still fits in 6 to 9 month clothing. So we are getting our use out of them.

She stayed up last night until midnight and then I made her go to bed. She cried a little but went to bed. I think she knew it was her birthday or something and was trying to stay up for it.

The happy birthday girl!
This was taken today when she first woke up.

And of course below are the 5 top reasons I love her.

#5- I love that when ever I clean her toys up in the living room, she is literally right behind me pulling her toys back out. It's almost like she is saying,"Mom, what are you doing? I don't want them there. It took me a long time to get them where I want them."

#4-I love to watch her learn new things and accomplish milestones from rolling over to walking. It has been so amazing watching her grow. She is learning to talk and I love how she answers me every time I ask her a question. Of course it is in her own baby language but she still answers me. It is so cute.

#3- I love how she makes me laugh. She is so cute and funny. She will walk around the apartment talking to herself and then she will start to laugh. It is so adorable. She always makes me laugh when she dances. She loves to dance whenever she hears music. I also get a kick out of her when shes see another kid or a dog. She gets so excited and she squeals with excitement and shakes because she can't contain herself. She is so adorable.

#2- I love that she is a little cuddle bug. She will be walking around and then all the sudden she will turn and want to hug me and sit on my lap and cuddle. She did this before she could walk. She also will come and lay next to me on the floor and cuddle with me. She also can give kisses. They are a little slobbery but I love them just the same. I guess I just love her hugs and kisses!

The number one reason I love her is that I just plain love her and she loves me and always wants me. I love being her mother and I love that I can comfort her. I love ever minute I have with her. I love that I get to wake up with her no matter what time it is because I always love to see her. She makes the tittle of Mother feel so wonderful. She is such a blast.

This past year has been so amazing watching Ayla grow and growing as a family. I look forward to all the years in raising Ayla. She makes Kurt and I so happy.

I have found that she makes me the most happy when she is having fun and is enjoying herself. It is pure joy to watch her be happy. There is nothing like it.

Happy Birthday Ayla!

I hope you have a wonderful day and mommy is going to spend every minute playing with you today!
