hannaly grace july,
you are one today. you are the brightest, sweetest, most beautiful baby girl of all time (well, you and noelle). i get teary thinking about this year with you. you’ve lived on my right hip for the last several months and there is no place i would rather you be. you are always right there, content and smiling. when you crawl your hips move quickly and your tush bobs around back and forth. you have taken a few small steps and will be completely walking in no time. when you laugh and your whole body shakes with joy. you are amazed by your brothers. you adore your sister. your dad is completely in awe of you. you make me so proud to be a mom. i love you completely. i always will. happy birthday, baby girl.
