November 9th, 2007 my sweet little Abby girl was born. I can't believe a year has already come and gone. I remember last year anticipating her birth and awaiting our "tiny" baby as the doctors were saying. Well she wasn't super tiny then (6 lbs. 12 oz), but she is tiny now. I will find out next week what she weighs at the doctor's, but I don't think its going to be a lot. She is petite in every way other than her personality. She is on the go all the time. She started walking at 10 1/2 months and is now practically running. She loves to dance (which consists of major squats or twirling around in circles with one hand held straight up until she is dizzy). She loves to climb, throw things out of drawers, wrestle with her brother, eat goldfish, throw her food off her highchair, and hug her teddies and blanket. She is a mama's girl and cries when I leave her sight, although when daddy walks in the door from work her face lights up and she runs to him. She finally has her first tooth. Her upper left one broke through about two weeks ago. That doesn't stop her from eating what she wants though. She has eaten meat and our table food from the get-go (never liked baby food) - but I don't blame her. She is such a blessing to our family! Thank you Lord for my "Abby Sweetie."

Here are some pictures of her first year!

Mommy loves you Abby! I pray the Lord will shine upon you and make you into a sweet loving little girl who grows into a women of God with uncompromising faith.

Wow, what an amazing and fast first year in Abby's life. I wish we could've been there to party with you. I would have called but I have lost my voice and I can only whisper right now. Love you so much and give Abby and Will both big hugs and kisses from all of us. Happy Birthday Abby!
