Alas, while her first year of life seemed to zip past us in a heartbeat, here are a few things I can distinctly tell you about my Little One, my Heart, Vivian Ella (I've decided to share my daughters' names on the blog on each of their birthday posts this year).
Vivian can be rather serious when she wants to be:
And curious, very curious:
She's a happy go lucky kind of gal:
And her blue eyes are bright and sparkling:
Don't let that look fool you; this kid has spunk.
And, dare I say it, a bit of a mischievous streak...
Her hugs are simply the best.
And I could spend all day being completely ridiculous, just for a glimpse of that smile.
Vivi adores her Big Sister, but knows how to stick up for herself when Toddler Mayhem rears its "I refuse to share/I enjoy being disagreeable" head.
I think she might possibly be brilliant (a mother innately knows this sort of thing, you see).
But whatever she decides to become, or which roads she travels, or how she dresses, or with whom she loves,
I will always love you with my whole heart, my Sweet. Happy 1st Birthday, Vivian!
Thank you, Stickybellies, for helping me document my daughter's first year of life in such a fun and memorable way!
