My Baby is 1 today ...

Happy Birthday Tatum ...
I am so upset ... the date on the freaking camera is WRONG ... I promise this picture was taken this am by her daddy just before school! Didn't he do a good job dressing her for her Birthday! What a Princess!

My precious Tatum Bug,

You came into our lives just 1 year ago, but it seems just like yesterday. You are such a joy, such a good baby. You started sleeping though the night at 3 months, I was so very proud. You amaze me everyday with your laughter, your smile and your ability to take it all in. I know you are only 1 and I make it sound like you have conquered it all, but anyone you meet says the same. You are so so happy and so easy going. This is amazing, especially considering that I have not been so easy going as your mommy. The first few weeks you were home with us I cried and cried, uncontrollably. Your daddy was wonderful and so were you. You were so patient with me, even though you didn’t have a choice, but together we have DONE IT!!! We have made it … a year! I love you, you are my sunshine, and you are my life! Daddy is my rock, my love and my best friend; you are my reason to make it all work! You are my reason to fight everyday for a better me, a better us and my reason to RUSH home! I love you with all my heart and I could not imagine our lives without you.

Our world is getting ready to change so so much, we are moving, we will have another baby in the house, and things will be harder. I promise I will do my best to put “us” time aside every week, I promise you that we will have our time, our fun together!
I thank God everyday that you are in my life and I can’t wait to see what the next few years will bring us! I look forward to learning with you, growing with you, and all the Birthdays to come. Happy Birthday to you, to me and please know how special you are to me. I never really believed all the mommies that said “you’ve never known love until you are a mommy,” but that is REAL! So very real! One day (a very very long time from now, like 30+ years) you will see what I mean. Having you in my life is amazing, you are my world and I LOVE YOU! Happy Birthday I hope we continue to have so much fun!
Love, Mommy

OMG.
She's 1.
Holy dyin' she was just born yesterday. And on her second day of living in this world she was sitting in a punkin and I know that was just yesterday because it can't possibly have been like 300+ days ago. Could it? Holy crap.

And I thought mine were growing up too fast.

Daddy did an awesome job of dressin' his lil' girl.

Big birthday hugs!
