Charlie turns ONE

Dear Charlotte

I dressed you in your Birthday Princess outfit. I placed your Happy Birthday corker bow in your hair. I sent a birthday treat in for you to share at school. Daddy and I made you your favorite dinner...Ravioli. We sang Happy Birthday. You opened your gifts. We had cake. Even with all of these things, I am having a hard time realizing that today is your birthday. You are ONE YEAR OLD today. It really seems like a few weeks ago that I was in the hospital delivering you.

You continue to amaze us with your personality, charm and grace. We love you so very much!

You are not yet walking, but that is okay. I will cherish every "first" you have as you are our last baby. You can wait as long as you want to make that next big milestone!

There are no words to show you exactly how I feel about today. No words to describe the amount of joy and love we have for you. Just know that we love you....the sweet, the sassy, the opinionated, the beauty! 


  1. I love the picture of her kissing/eating something (the 3rd one)!

    It seems to me like you were just in the hospital having her too!

    Happy 1st birthday, Charlie! You are so, so loved!

    1. She was kissing her new hair bows! I was cracking up :)

  2. No words can ever truly express the day they turn one, can they? Happy happy birthday to sweet Charlie. Enjoy it mama :)

  3. I was getting teary eyed reading this!! She is such a cutie-patootie and I'm jealous that she leaves hairbows in her hair!! Happy Birthday to Charlie!!

  4. You made me cry!!! How unbelievably sweet! Happy birthday Charlie!!!! LOVE HER!

  5. Happy 1st Birthday gorgeous girl!!
    She is a sweetheart and it looks like you had a great day. It's bittersweet isn't it?

  6. Happy 1st Birthday, sweet girl!
    I'm so glad she had a nice birthday. I've said it several times, but I really can't believe she's 1. Seems like I was just eagerly awaiting your text to hear she was born!!!
