Sabrina is 1!

Oh man, I knew this day was coming but I tried to deny it for as long as I could.  But today my little princess Sabrina is now 1 years old. 

I admit that it is a day met with a bit of sadness to know that my little baby girl won't be so little for much longer.  Soon she will be walking and talking and then she will be keeping up with her big brothers who also have grown up way too fast.  So this morning, I enjoyed a few extra baby snuggles with my girl and want to capture every last second of her babyhood.

As I snuggled you this morning, I thought back to your birth-day and those first moments that I treasure so much of you snuggling into my arms.  I realized that you are the only one of our babies that I held on that first day of life.  It meant so very much to me and I am so thankful for that time that was just you and me and it felt like the rest of the world disappeared!  I will also never forget that moment when the doctor said "I think we should let daddy say what we have." and Your daddy said "It's a girl!"  Moments forever etched into my heart!

You now weigh 19 lbs 6 ounces which leaves you steadily in the 10-25%.  You still seem so tiny to me, but that just means you get to be my baby for a little bit longer and I like that idea! You are wearing mostly 12 month size clothing now!

You are still taking 1-2 bottles per day.  While we were moving we kind of started back up on more bottles. You can kind of take them or leave them so I know we will be giving up on them soon.  Otherwise you aren't even doing purees anymore - all table foods!

You have become quite the busy little girl this month.  You are pulling up on anything and everything which also means you fall quite often and get hurt.  You are also letting go of things now and standing!  That is quite exciting and I love how you get so tickled about it and giggle every time you do it!

You are still a great sleeper getting in 12-14 hours of sleep per night.  You also like a 2-3 hour nap during the day.  I love your sleep habits!

I thought for sure you would have a tooth by now. You have 6 swollen spots in your mouth so I know they are on the way but you are a very sloooow teether like Eli and it is taking forever for them to break through.

You are such a beautiful little princess inside and out!  I love your little heart and you have the sweetest little personality.  You are such a happy baby and that is a great trait to carry through life with you.  I hope you will always remain happy!

I cannot even put in to words how I feel about you.  I never knew my life was missing something or needed a precious baby girl in it. I wouldn't trade you for the world Miss Bina!  You are everything I have ever wanted and more.  A precious daughter who is a huge blessing in my life!  I hope and pray that you and I will always remain very close and know that I will always be there for you and you will always remain my baby girl!  You completed me in a way I never knew I needed and this mommy has never been happier!  Happy Birthday little ray of sunshine! We love you!
