Today is your first birthday. Daddy, Luke, Josh and I sang the Happy Birthday song to you this morning. You looked at us like we were from another planet. Yes, I know we don't sing very well... but thanks for clapping for us at the end!
This is what you are like today at one-year-old:
You LOVE music. Any time you hear any type of little song or rhythm, you stop what you are doing and do your little wiggle dance.
You could swing in the backyard all day long. You are so smart. The way you tell us you want to go swing is you either put your right hand in the air and move it back and forth, or you hum the song I sing to you when we swing. We can't believe that you can remember the notes to hum all by yourself.
Your first word was "bye-bye", followed by "mama", "bear" and "baby", but for "baby" you say, "boo boo".
Your personality is pure sweetness. There is no "spicy" in you at all. You smile and wave at everyone and love to be the center of attention. That's when you really like to show off. You are easy-going, enthusiastic and up for anything.
You are super, duper ticklish. You belly laugh when your brothers tickle you under your neck, tummy or arm pits. It's makes us ALL laugh!
Well, Isabella, I'm off to go set up a few more things for your birthday party. We are so proud of you and love you SO MUCH! You are our SUNSHINE and JOY!
