She's not a baby girl anymore!


Zaria is 1!

I can't believe how fast this year has gone! I know we always say that, but it is SO true! It was a very short time ago that I was holding a tiny baby girl in my arms who was completely dependent on me. Now I have this toddler (gasp!) who can walk anywhere she wants to, climbs up stairs, talks on the phone, feeds and kisses her baby dolls, and is actually playing with her older sisters and brother! All in the space of one year! It's a bit of a shock to a parent's system I think, but it is an amazing process, and I never tire of watching it happen! She has such a fun and sweet personality, and she gives amazing hugs! I love this little girl and can't picture a day without having known what her smile can do to lift my spirits or imagine what our family would be like with out her! I am so excited to watch as she grows into a little girl with her own unique traits this next year and in the years to come.
We had a little party to celebrate HER on her day! I don't know if she realised it was all about her or not, but she had fun!

Loving her birthday cake!

oh yeah!

Wonderful pictures!!! I am so thankful for the internet and the ability to stay in touch over the miles. Nothing, however, beats a chubby hug and a sloppy kiss.
