It's hard to believe...

It's hard to believe that it's already been one whole year since our sweet little baby Reese was born!! She is one year old today. This has definitely been the fastest year of my life! I still remember that day so well. At the same time I don't even remember what is was like before Reese was part of our family, she is our whole life now. She brings us so much joy and happiness, and I am so grateful to have the opportunity to be her mother.

She has gone from this cute little thing......To this cute little (but bigger) thing. She loves us to help her walk, and to walk with her walker. I think it won't be too much longer before she can do it on her own. She stands up on everything and walks along furniture or the wall or whatever she can hold onto.
She has such a cute little personality. It's so exciting to see her learn so many new things all the time. Sometimes I get surprised by the things she knows and the things she can do. I've been asking her to point to things in books lately like a duck, shoes, socks, bird, ball, and she can point to all of them! She's learning where all of her body parts are, and sometimes she'll know a part that I didn't teach her, she just knew.
She loves to look at herself in the mirror and give kisses. She loves to give kisses to all of her stuffed animals and to animals and people in books.
I love this girl so much!
Happy Birthday Reese!!
