Happy 1st Birthday!!

Dear Rowan,

You turned 1 last Thursday, and your Daddy and I couldn't be more excited.  You have been so fun to get to know over this past year, and I can't wait to see your personality continue to unfold.  You are definitely opinionated.  You are also a little spitfire!!  You have the best smile.  People always comment on how laid back and happy you are.  I continue to be your favorite (for now at least).  Although as soon as you hear Daddy's voice when he comes home from work, you get REALLY excited.  As far as size goes, you continue to be petite.  You only weigh 18 lbs 2 oz.  That is only 10 pounds more than you weighed at birth.  Dr. de doesn't seem to be too concerned about it, but he said we would just continue to keep an eye on it.  You still aren't saying any words, but you understand so much.  You do sign for more, and we can tell you are done with your meal, because you throw your cup on the floor.  Anytime you hear other people clapping, you clap along.

You are such a joy, and as much as I want you to continue growing, I sure am going to miss my sweet little girl that we have right now!!

I love you,
