A letter to my girl for her 1st Birthday!

Dear Calleigh Elizabeth,

Tomorrow is your first birthday, oh how time has flown by! We have had so many exciting things happen in this first year with you.

You have been the miracle we always wanted and the light of our lives! I thank God each and every day for him allowing me to be your mommy. I am blessed more then one person should be!

In this first year you have done so many new things. You have learned who you daddy and I are, you have spent the night with many people, you have learned to crawl and now you are starting to take your first steps. You have said your first words, mama, dada, nana, bird, bite and papa, you have six teeth now, and the only food you will not eat is cottage cheese! You love to eat your oatmeal in the mornings with your sippy cup of milk!

Every night, we play in the living room with daddy. Some of your favorite things to do are to wrestle with daddy, pet Roo, and open and take everything out of the drawers on the end tables! You also love to sneak your way into the utility room and get into Roo’s water bowl and splash around! You love bath time; you just can’t get enough! Sometimes you get really mad at us when we take you out!

When you are getting tired we sing some songs to you. You favorites are “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star”, and “Row, Row, Row Your Boat”. You are just like your daddy and love to watch TV! Some of your favorite shows are The Backyardagains, Handy Manny, Micky Mouse Clubhouse, My Friends Tigger and Pooh, and Miss Spider’s Sunny Patch Friends. You dance and clap your hands and have such a good time!

You have the sweetest smile, the most beautiful blue eyes, and a personality like no other! I can’t wait to watch you grow and see the young woman you become. My prayer for you is that you love and welcome Jesus into your life. He has done so many things for our family and I can’t wait until we can pray together and worship the Lord with one another.

You, little bear, are my angel. There was a time in my life that I never knew if you would ever be here. But after lots of prayer, God decided the time was right and sent you to us! Mommy and Daddy will always be here for you no matter what! You have made us so happy, completed our family, and we are so happy to celebrate your first birthday with you!

Happy 1st Birthday Calleigh Elizabeth! We love you!
