My sweet baby, Charlotte Adventure, is 1 today

I've said it before, and I will say it again. Time flies. Babies grow up entirely too fast. And it seems like I was pregnant just yesterday.  I look at my daughter (who is sprawled out on my bed right now), and can't believe that she is one today. Well technically, 5:17 p.m. is when she entered this world.

She is a walking (started walking in July), somewhat talking, toddler now.  She climbs over things, likes to do somersaults (maybe another Gabby Douglas on our hands?), loves to dance and sing, is very vocal about what she wants, and loves to give hugs.  Seriously, the cutest thing in the world is when she walks up to me with her arms outstretched, gives me a hug and pats me on the back.

As I write this, I am about to tear up. Now, I am an emotional person to begin with, and I cry at pretty much anything. But even though it has only been a year, my little baby has grown up so fast.  I still miss the days when she was just a tiny newborn, that loved to snuggle. I remember her first smile, her first coo, the first time I left her so that my husband and I can have a date night (I was a WRECK that night!!!).  Everyday she just amazes me with what she does. It is mindblowing how much I can love one little person so much from the first moment that I saw them.

So happy birthday sweet, sweet Charlotte Adventure.  I hope we are doing an o.k. job being your parents. And may your life be filled with many adventures ahead of you.

Here is one year of Charlotte. I tried to do it in order, but.....some of them may not be in order :)
