Can it really be that my baby girl will be 1 YEAR OLD next month. Please tell me it's not so! I truely believe people now when they same time flies by when you have a little one.
Brinley is truely full of life and developing her own little personality. Sometimes I wonder what I have gotten myself into, but I would not trade her for anything in the world. She is such a happy girl! She brightens my day every morning when I walk in her room to wake her up and she has the biggest smile on her face! She also has a bit of her temper, not sure where she got that from, ha! She will throw a fit if she doesn't get what she wants! She jabbers all the time and we have deep conversations. I have no idea what we are talking about but she always answers me! She has her daddy wrapped around her little finger and it will only be a matter of time before she wants to go to the shop to work on the racecar instead of staying inside to play with mom:( I thanks God everyday that he gave us this precious gift and allowed us the pleasure of being her parents!

I cannot put into words how much I love you. You mean the world to me and I would do anything to keep you safe. I just doesn't seem possible that you will be 1 year old next month. You have the most wonderful personality that any little girl could have. You are so sweet. I love everyday that I get to spend with you teaching you new things. Your smile can ligh up a room and everyone comments on so happy you are. You make your daddy and I laugh like we have never laughed before. You are such a joy to be around. I think you ahve your daddy wrapped around your finger. He loves you more that life itself. We are so blessed to have you in our lives. I hate being away from you when I am at work but I love the smile you give me when I come to pick you up. You always wave bye-bye as soon as I get there because you know we are going home! You always keep us on our toes because you get into everything you are not supposed to. It is so cute though because when you know you have something your shouldn't, you imediately look at us and hand it over very innocently! I hope that your daddy and I can teach you how to be an honest, responsible young lady. We love you more that words can express!!!
