this moment ~ one whole year

..




Our dear little child of light, our advent baby, our hope and joy and blessing.
One whole wonderful year of life with her.
One blurry photograph, an unfinished falling off birthday crown.
Love from sisters And little handmade gifts of course.
And they dressed you up. (In a dress that doesn't quite fit.) (They kind of do that often...)
A dance with daddy. Lots of smiles and giggles.
You go on little walks around the house with us now. Very wobbly legs.
Super happy girl.
We love you so.

Happy happy birth(ing) day, dear Renee and family! How simply lovely and wonderful to be one!!! One with adoring people loving her up. She is a true beauty, born this wonderful day ~ surely a good omen. Hugs to all, and may her path be filled with light and love and good health this year ahead! xoxoxo

So sweet and so big already. The more children you have the faster the growing up goes I think! Happy, happy birthday!

P.S. My sister and I always dressed up our younger brothers, mostly as girls :).
