Happy First

My sweet Elliot Joy.
A year ago today we welcomed you to our little family.
We grew from five to six.
You were an answer to our prayers.
You completed us.
In the last year you have brought so much to our family.
And so, so much love.
I can't say enough about how much I adore you.

You have been our easiest baby by far.
You are content.
You smile and the room changes.
You laugh and everyone around you joins in.

Happy Birthday my sweet, sweet baby.
This past year has been such a blessing.
I wish I could keep you little forever 
and yet at the same time I am so excited to watch your little personality emerge.
My heart rests in the fact that
you, my little love, will always be my baby girl.

Daddy and I love you sweet thing.
Happy first birthday!
