Dear Shelby, yesterday was the one year anniversary of your birth! I cannot believe you are only one sometimes because it feels like you have been in my life forever. It also feels like it was just the other day that I brought my tiny girl home from the hospital! You are remarkably precious, insanely sweet, and infectiously joyful. You are like a tiny angel that flew down from heaven straight into my arms, into my care, on loan to me and your daddy from your father creator God above! You shine, my sweet Shelby Grace!
What a wonderful Christmas present you were!!
My love for you is beyond words, Shelby, you are closer than my breath, always on my mind, and since you came into my world, I know joy greater than I could have ever imagined!
You smiled from day one! I think you were still seeing angels as you slept.
You are one year old now! What an awesome year it has been with you!
Lisbeth made you this beautiful cake that you LOVED!
You had so much fun playing with your cousins!
Your sister, Junie, ate lots of cookies, fudge, and cake, and this was the result…don’t blink or you’ll miss her!!
She especially liked Tyler!
Your friend Ellie played with you outside,
…and showed off her new teeth! WOW
You love your Nannie so much,
Grandpa too! Grammy and Pa were there too and Aunt Sara and Celine and Uncle Joe and Chris, but mommy was too busy to get photos of everyone. I was making sure you were happy, fed, and safe…
Daddy loves his little princess Shelby!!
HAppy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday dear Shelby, Happy Birthday to you my sweet Shelby!!
After pizza and cake, you opened presents and then Nannie brought this dress that mommie wore on her first birthday! You looked so pretty in mommies dress!
Happy Birthday to my sweet Shelby, and thank you to all of my family for coming over and sharing this special day with us!!
