One Year, One Month

·         You cruise everywhere and have finally begun to walk!  You decided at your Birthday party that you would take your “official” steps as a one-year-old.  You rocked it out as WonderWoman and Hanky was Thor. 
·         We had our first time apart, you and I.  Mama took a Girls’ Trip to Phoenix, AZ and desperately missed you the whole much of the time.  It was sooo good to be home and give you kisses and snuggles.  You and Daddy greeted me at the airport – you were all smiles for me.  It was good to be missed.
·         You’ve decided you are more than advanced.  You are now up to 35 words and 30 signs! Woah!  Mama is impressed.  You are too smart for your own good.
·         Bath time is still a favorite.  You would play in the bath all day long.  You will shiver and freeze your tooshy off but you still insist on being in the cold water and are sad to get out.
·         “Quack, quack, quack – bang!” Daddy decided you should learn “what ducks really say”.  Oh, my poor child – I sure hope kindergarten isn’t hard due to your father’s antics.  ;)  you love to say “quack” but thankfully haven’t attempted nor mastered “bang!”.
·         You and Gracie share an amazing bond.  If she’s around you would prefer her to anyone else.  If she’s taken her attention off you, even for a moment, you call out to her.  Its adorable!  She is really good with you and loves to take care of you.
·         You and Henry are the best of friends and the worst of siblings… you have officially entered toddler stage where you have moments of love and others of hate.  J You are mastering fighting back!  He used to only beat you up, but now you’ve taken to fighting back!  Your father is proud. 

I am so thankful for you, Harper Kendall.   You challenge who I am, remind me who I should be and teach Daddy and I to love stronger, truer and more faithfully.  You bring a light to our lives that we didn’t know was missing.  You keep me on my toes and light our house with laughter.  I believe you are called for great things and will be a woman after God’s heart.  I appreciate your strength and boldness – I know God has given you both for the future.  I call you are healthy, whole, wise and happy.

We believe:
You ARE smart.
You ARE beautiful.
You ARE important.
You ARE special.
