My little girl turned 1!

Dear Ruby,

It was just one year ago that I met you for the first time. Daddy held you first and I've never seen him so happy. He was radiating with happiness as he got to know his new little girl. When he placed you in my arms, I couldn't believe how precious you were. You had just come straight from heaven to be in our family. This past year has flown by, but it has been probably the happiest year of my life. It has been so much fun getting to see all your "firsts". I love watching your personality develop. I am so glad you're my little girl and will always be my little girl. I love you.


Here's some pictures of the only birthday you'll ever have where you get to be naked and eat your own cake:

"uh, what is this?"

"Oh no! Some fell on the ground! Don't waste it!"

"I need it for my hair!"

"Hmmm...do you think I could do this again tomorrow?"
