Happy First Birthday Aubrey

Our sweet little Aubrey is one today!

I cannot believe how fast time has flown.

It seems like only yesterday... 
when we met you for the very first time
and  fell instantly in love with you.

We have all loved watching your grow this year.
You fill our hearts and days with so much joy.
We love you so very much Aubrey Kate!

Everything about your first birthday was special

from your fascination with the balloons

to watching you open your gifts.
Of course your sisters were right there to lend a hand
if you needed it.

You were not so sure about your cake.
You played in it a bit and tasted it a little.

I must admit, as I sang to you tonight and tucked you in I cried a few tears.
Looking back on the baby you were...
that sweet baby smell
that swaddled bundle of love

you are growing up so fast and
some memories of you that small 
are already starting to fade
and that makes me so sad!

So instead I must dry my tears and look forward to the sweet toddler you are becoming

enjoy every minute with you
and fill it with love and smiles

I love you so very much!
