I am sort of freaking out. Although, she has been doing things that most one year olds do since about 9 months, it's the pure fact that she will be ONE!
My Little Miss Independent is aging right before my eyes. And I don't like it.
I want her to be my baby girl forever.
When Kyler turned one I was excited. I knew all the milestones that he was going to accomplish within that year and I was thrilled for him.
When he turned 2 I bawled! I mean bawled!
When he turned 3 I was excited again.
Does that mean at 4 I will cry? Probably!
I love my children more than anything in the world. The pure thought of them growing up and possibly not needing me anymore totally freaks me out.
I am pretty sure that Kyler will always need his mama. That's just how he is.
Ella on the other hand doesn't even seem to need me now! She is so independent.
Wish me luck on Thursday. My baby girl will be one.

She looked absolutely adorable in her pink tutu. Someday she will hate me for it though!
I have never really been into cooking or baking, but just recently I have discovered that it is quite enjoyable. Something that I really wanted to do for Ella was make her cake. It took a few tries, but I thought it turned out pretty good for someone who doesn't bake!
My pretty princess!
Ella did fabulous with her cake. She didn't even make a mess! That's my girl!

Ella trying to catch an invisible fairy (I guess!)
Kyler is listening intently to what Grandma Penny has to say!
On Christmas morning we woke up early and headed to my parents house.
Ella and Deegan (with Grandma S) in their matching onesies.
Kyler, Grandpa S, and Ella getting in some cuddles before presents.
It isn't very often that you get to enjoy the zoo in December. Thanks kids for a wonderful day!
It took some special doing and lots of letters to Santa, but I finally convinced him to come to our house on Christmas Eve because we would be heading out of town early on Christmas Day. I guess I gave a pretty convincing argument because he agreed:)
I feel very blessed to, not only be Deegan's favorite Aunt :), but also his Godparent. Thank you Jacki and Chris for asking us to play such an important role in Deegan's life.
