Happy 1st birthday! You did it, angel!
What a year it has been, too! We had so much fun getting to know you. You're definitely the happiest baby I have ever met, so full of joy and smiles that anyone who meets you remarks on it immediately!
You are such a Brooklyn baby. Sleeping through sirens (usually), passing out on the subway with all sorts of people around you, cruising around the Hot Bird! with any of your uncles and aunties holding your arms up, and wearing all of the latest fashions including the hippest little red sandals ever made!
I try to take time every day to just look at you. You're so freaking cute. Your little feet are the best thing I have ever seen, hands down, I mean they are one of the wonders of the world to be sure. Your eyebrows - early on I was accused of plucking and shaping them. I don't but, honest! Oh and Monster Face. Every single person you do it to, me, your papa, your nanny, random people on the subway, immediately does it right back to you. I bet you have that look on your face in your first grade picture.
I love to hold you in my lap and try to hang on to you as you try to squirm away to go bang on papa's TV. I love to follow you around the house and crack up as you laugh triumphantly.
Listening to you in the bathtub is pure joy.
You are the best baby on earth and I am so, so lucky to have you.
I love you very much. And your papa does, too.
