Now that your first birthday has come and gone, you are slipping away from babyhood and becoming a toddler. A little girl. A child.
You have your own interests, your own sense of humor, the most delightful personality. I love that you dance to any beat, even the silly ones your daddy makes up. Even the ones only you can hear. I hope you'll never stop dancing to your own beat.
I love that you're never afraid to wave hello to another child. You see a new friend, a new adventure or maybe just something sparkly. You never worry that they're judging you, you just jump right in and give them a big smile. Sometimes you want to touch the beads in their hair or the princess on their shirt. Sometimes you want to show them your shoes, or point out something fun or just say hi.
I love that you are bold, yet cautious. Independent, yet still my baby in so many ways. You inspire me daily with your fearless approach to life, with your boundless energy, with your sweet innocence. I love that you give kisses but that you make us ask more than once. I love that you always kiss your own reflection with no prompting from me! :) 
You are such an amazing little soul. You make old men smile and old ladies cry. You just can't know how special you are. I love you so much little girl.

I love the pictures with the dog. And I wish we could bottle up that innocence in our children and keep it forever!
