I can not believe that our sweet little Halloween baby is one today. It feels just like yesterday that my water broke and we were driving to the hospital to have our little baby girl. For those of you who don't know the story Tim did not, and I mean did not want Addison to be born on Halloween. His exact words were, "it's creepy!" My actual due date was Oct. 27th, all throughout my pregnancy Tim would tell everyone how he just did not want her to be born on Halloween. Well of course the 27th came and went, and on Oct. 31st at 12:30 a.m my water broke. So there was no way she wasn't going to be born on Halloween.
Today as I take a moment to look back over this first year with Addison in our lives, I am filled with so many emotions. I knew I would enjoy being a mother but I honestly never knew it would be this good. The unconditional love that I, and the rest of the moms and dads out there, have for our children is hard to put into words, there is nothing like it. Addison has been the perfect baby. Tim and I feel so blessed to have her as our daughter. She has truly made it easy on us as parents. She is the sweetest girl and I can't even imagine what our lives would be like without her. (It's funny how everything changes after you have your own children.) These last few months have been so much fun watching her grow and start to develop her own personality. She used be very attached to me and Tim, but it has been fun seeing her reach out and play with others. She has the sweetest smile, you can't help but smile and laugh when you see her squint her eyes, scrunch her nose, and flash that huge grin. We want Addison to know how much we love her and how much happiness she brings to our lives. Happy Birthday Sweetie!!
