Our baby is 1 year old!

Yes, Olivia has made it to 1 year. More surprisingly, John and I have made it 1 year as parents. And I have to say I am very sad. I was looking through pictures today and having a hard time believing that it has been a year since I had her. I can remember almost everything about that day (well, I can remember everything that wasn't fogged out by Stadol). The first year has really been fun, but it has also been extremely difficult, in more ways than one. But we made it, and I think that, as Olivia gets older, parts of parenting will get easier, but we'll have new things pop up that will get harder. Olivia is almost walking, almost talking, eating almost entirely table food, and is communicating much better. I was saying last night that it is so nice that she is able to get herself around places almost entirely on her own. Gone are the days of having to pick her up, help her sit up, and moving her from one room to the other. She is a very happy child and for that we are extremely grateful. John and I have been very lucky and we look forward to seeing her grow into a wonderful little girl.

I love this last picture! =)

What a wonderful look back at year number ONE! I laughed at your thinking that parenting might get easier now...ha, ha, ha, ha ... Tee Hee hee, ha, ha, ... OK ... the only thing else I need to say is that Olivia is blessed to have such fantastic parents.
