Happy 1st Birthday Layla!!!

Dear Layla Kate,
This year has gone by so fast. You are getting so big! I hope you know how much your mom and dad love you. You make us smile everyday and your sweet little spirit is such a blessing to our family. Gray can't wait for you to wake up every morning so he can help mom get you out of bed. You struggled a little with jaundice and RSV when you were first born, but you were a little fighter and in no time trying to keep up with brother. You are at times such a shy little sweetheart. You have always been our little cuddle baby, most of your life you've been attached to mom's hip. Your first game was peek-a-boo and you would laugh until you had the hick-ups. Once you could crawl, you were an adventurer! You were given the sweetest smile and already know how to use it to your advantage. You also have, to date, four front teeth (with more on their way) which you use on Gray daily. Your little personality has really shown through the last couple of months and your dad and I can already tell you are going to be a handful, but a beautiful, smart, funny, and sweet little handful. We love you little sis-you make our eternal family complete!
Dad, Mom, and Gray

Layla's Stats:
30 inches long = 68% for height
19 lbs = 13% for weight (They had to weigh me with her- I think it is a mistake)
Likes: hugs, yogurt bites, crackers, books, her mini rocking chair, riding brother like a horse, dolls, tutu's, playing tease, tastes of candy, biting everything in sight,singing, and dogs.
Dislikes: squash, getting her diaper changed, drinking from bottles, sharing toys, messy fingers, and hats.

I still can't believe she is one. I can remember the day she was born like it was yesterday. She has such an amazing personality. She is so quiet and loving but yet a sassy little thing when she wants something! I love little girls like that!! We just love her and Gray and miss them tons.

Deid, she is darling, soooo cute with your dimples. Both her and Grey are! I will tell you, I'm a little surprised that neither of your kids have brown eyes. I was sure they would, brown's the prominent gene. I guess John had to throw something in the mix :)
