Alice officially turned one last week! We’ve had a great time celebrating her first year.
Its amazing to think that this time last year we were just meeting this impossibly small newborn baby (and still getting over the shock that she turned out to be a little girl!). And now here we are a year later with a walking, talking little person who is a baby no longer.
It has been an incredibly sweet year for the Faulkners. Alice has made the transition into parenthood a a true delight for us. We’ve cherished watching her transform from a tiny, sleeping infant into a very busy, outgoing little girl with an ever- joyful disposition and an adventurous (read:wild) spirit.
One thing it seems they forget to tell you before you have a child is how hilarious the whole thing will be. More than any difficult week, sleepless night, or any sickness we survived in this first year, what sticks with me the most is the funny stuff. For the record, this kid has given us some of the best laughs of our lives. And for that, we are most grateful.
Happy First Birthday dear Alice. We love you and look forward to many more to come!
