Today, Evaleigh is one.
It has been such an honor to be her parents for a whole year. It has been the happiest and most full year of our lives. Watching her grow and make us laugh while we take in every minute of her has been simply the best.
I just don't even know how to take in the fact that we have had her for a whole year. I remember a year ago today so perfectly. This time last year I had just woken up and we were getting ready to go to the hospital for the c-section. That was the best day of my life.
Today Evaleigh is bringing me stuffed animals and giving them huge hugs. Everytime we go down the stairs I'll sit down at the top steps and wait til I feel two little arms hug around my neck and then I give EJ a piggy back ride all the way down, she loves it.
This morning she woke up at 7am and John and I went in to her room together to get her while singing Happy Birthday. She probably thought it was pretty weird. She gave us an uneasy look, we are already embarrassing her.
I can't wait to celebrate her life all day.
