One Year

My friends and family know how much I love my children, my family, my friends, my job....but one year ago today I was blessed with a beautiful niece and became an aunt.  My sweet Alex was born one year ago today and has filled our family and hearts full this year.  Growing up I always pictured myself with at least 4 kids.  But God always has a better plan than we can even dream.   He blessed me beyond measure with the most incredible son in the world, has blessed us through the adoption of our sweet, doll of a daughter, and he gave me a niece that is only 1 mile away.  In the past year I have rocked her, sang to her, read to her, played with her and now am chasing her.  She is an angel!   Even when she is tired and a little grouchy, I can start singing Patty Cake or Wheels on the Bus and she stops to listen and then a huge smile forms from ear to ear.    She is a smart, beautiful little girl and it is such a gift to be her aunt and watch her learn and grow.  I love you, Allie-poo!!  I hope you have the happiest of birthdays!
