Ember is a whole year old today! I know it’s so cliche, but I’ll say it anyway:

I can’t believe it’s been a whole year, but I also can’t believe that it’s only been a year. She is a ray of sunshine and she loves everyone. Like everyone. Everyone at the park, everyone in the grocery store, everyone walking their dog, everyone she sees. Since she’s one I decided to do a a round up of little things for her age.

I never imagined I’d enjoy a tiny person so much! I’m so excited for all this next year has to bring. Happy birthday, sweet lady.
