Happy Birthday Sadie

sadie1year

Dear Sadie,

One year ago, shortly after 4:20am, I heard your sweet cry for the first time.

Right then and there my life changed.

One year ago, I spent the night staring at your precious face.
One year ago, we became a family of three.

Without a doubt, this past year has been the best year of my life.

Because of you, I am a mom.
Because of you, I know the deepest meaning of love.
Because of you, I strive to be the best I can be.
Because of you, I feel complete.

It’s amazing to see how much you have grown over the past year.

You went from an ittty bitty squishy 7 pound baby to an {almost} walking and talking 1 year old.
You went from sleeping away the day snuggled in your swing, to climbing on me like I’m a jungle gym.
You went from barely noticing objects on your play-mat, to waving bye bye and giving high fives.
You went from baby babbling to saying “da” (for dog) whenever you see Zoe or Lilly.
You went from rolling – to sitting up – to crawling – to standing – to just about walking.
And in the blink of an eye, you went from being a newborn – to an infant – and now to a toddler.

You are such a happy girl – with a {gap toothed} smile that is so lovable.

And that laugh of yours… It’s contagious.

But my absolute favorite are Sadie hugs. I can’t get enough of them!

I made this video for you to look back on one day and enjoy watching moments {week.by.week} from your first year of life as much as we’ve enjoyed spending them with you!

Happy 1st birthday, my sweet Sadie Jane!

Love,
Mommy
