A year ago today we welcomed our sweet little Everly into the world, all 7.7lbs and 20inches of her.
You have been and are an incredible blessing to us. Teaching us how to love so much more than we ever have before. Sure there have been challenges along the way, but we have faced them together as a family. We are very thankful that you are no longer dealing with severe reflux. While we are still concerned about your eye, some days even that appears to be so much better. You are one very determined little girl, we know that nothing is going to stop you from doing what you want to in life.
Always full of smiles, hugs, and lots of love and giggles. Many asked us if you ever cried? The answer is yes, but you do not want to hear it because you have had an incredible set of lungs since day one, that have now only gotten stronger over time. You are a very happy girl though, and bring so much joy into every day.
You already love being outside, music, and animals. It makes us think about the future and what your interests will continue to be. What will you become some day? Our only hope and prayer for you is that you will become an incredible, Godly woman. If you want to run a zoo, become a doctor, or travel the world we will support you every step of the way. For now lets focus on mastering your walking skills, though you have been doing that for 2 months already. It seems like you are already trying to run.
What a year it has been. Experiencing all of your “firsts”. Rolling, crawling, steps and walking, climbing stairs, words and so much more. You have accomplished so much in these 12 months. We are still wondering where the rest of your teeth are as you are still just rocking your bottom front two. You have so much personality, that you cannot contain it. It all just overflows out of you. We love you little girl, you fill our hearts so much.
Happy 1st Birthday Everly! Love Mommy & Daddy
