Number One

My dear Janey-
I can't believe you are one already!
From the minute I found out I was going to be given the gift of a new child, my heart was full of love for you. 
You are a little light in our home.

Your quiet sweetness, big bright blue eyes, contagious laughter, your little bunny teeth, your insatiable
appetite at dinner, your dimples, your chubby thighs, the way you bump heads with me, forehead to forehead, nose to nose, how you put your head on my shoulder or on Daddy's when you get shy with strangers, how you laugh so hard at all the silly things your sister and brothers do, and then always get the hiccups, and your gentle spirit, have brought so much joy to us all.  

Happy First Birthday to my sweet little Janey!

  20. Your baby of the family and my oldest share the same birthday. Happy 1st Janey and Happy 15th Zach.

    She is absolutely adorable and she looks so much like Patrick.

    Where does time go? It seems like just yesterday that we were celebrating Zach's birth and I can't believe Janey is already 1 - they grow up way too quickly!
