..and then she was one…

Despite having a shadow over our weekend, we celebrated Amelia’s birthday with lots of icing, a few friends, and only a moment or two of tears from Mommy.

How do they go from so small she’s just a tiny dark head in our family picture to the icing eating toddler you’ll see below?

We’ve had to reschedule her party for next weekend and I missed all the blog milestones I was “supposed to” mark this week…oh, well.  We’ll just keep celebrating all week.

Thank God we are not judged on what we are supposed to, but rather on how much love we share.  This past year we have been blessed with more love, more joy, and more completeness.  Happy Birthday, Amelia…you are a joy and a blessing each and every day.
