My sweet, lovable, huggable, kissable, perfectly plump, squeezable, bundle of love is ONE!!!!!!!
1 year ago today – on her due date! – at 1:04pm, this little piece of perfection joined our family.
Now she is a giggly, happy ONE year old!
I didn’t let myself comprehend how much I wanted her. I didn’t know how much our family needed her. Now I can’t imagine how we ever lived without her. She’s the last piece of our little family puzzle and we’re now a full and joyful picture!!
I relive the day she was born a lot and it still makes me want to tear up. I still sometimes can’t believe that I have a baby GIRL!! Dream come true.

Like I said one year ago, “it seems the sun is shining a little brighter, the birds are singing a little louder, and all is right in the world! Or maybe it’s just me and the high I’m still on from this sweet baby girl! ” One year later and I’m still on that high! I love this baby girl more than I thought possible.
Happy, happy first birthday Baby Mantha. Here’s to many, many more wonderful birthdays ahead! We love you!!
Now, go on, wish my sweet baby girl a Happy Birthday! 🙂 It’s a GREAT day to be ONE!
