I love you so much I can hardly stand it! Can't really believe it's been a whole year since
you joined our clan; I'm sure I've known you all my life.
Will you please stay this darling forever?
Your day started off with Birthday breakfast cake that Zachary made. I think you were thrilled to get your
fingers into it :-) That candle wasn't bad either, was it.
Then your helpers brought you gifts, among your favorite were the beautiful bead necklaces we got you
from the dollar store. Isn't it amazing how much pleasure one dollar will buy?
Your big brother appreciated your loot too!
Do you think you'll remember Zachary reading your new book to you all?
I think that was a hit too :-)
And then Gramsie outfitted you in this perfectly birthday-ish, deliciously bright
and sunny party outfit.
You are pure sunshine Aloria and I'm so thankful to be your mother. My only request is that you don't grow
too fast, but if you're going to... I hope I'm here to see it all!
I love you baby!
