The BIG 1!

Dear Bailey,
One year ago, today, I held you in my arms for the first time. When daddy left to tell everyone you had arrived I sang to you. Do you remember?

"You are my sunshine, my only sunshine, you make me happy, when skies are gray. You'll never know dear, how much I love you, please don't take my sunshine away."

Mommy and daddy love you more than anything in the whole world! We are so happy to have you in our lives! You are a little sunshine! You make everyone smile! I had NO idea you would be so beautiful, special, and loved. You have taught me more about life and love than I ever thought possible.

Happy Birthday baby girl! You are So special!

Love,
Mommy

Here is Bailey's birthday party invitation. The first picture is the outside of the invite. There is a picture from each month and 2 for 11 months. The poem is what I wrote for the inside. They turned out VERY cute (and yes, honey, I KNOW they were expensive but B is TOTALLY worth it!)

For many months we prayed and prayed
And wondered and hoped until she came
The day she was born was the happiest of all
For mommy and daddy, we were in awe

And through the months we’ve laughed and played
And thanked God every SINGLE day
For our blessing from above
We never knew there was such love

And now our baby crawls and grooves
It’s oh so fun to watch her moves
A tiny baby, she is no more
The toddler years we are in for

Our little one is the most precious thing
And happiness she will always bring
So, please join us at her party so fun
For Bailey Grace is turning ONE!!

Enjoy the pictures from her birthday party!
