Heidi is 1!

What can you say when a year flies by, and your first-born has their first birthday? It has gone so fast, and been such a blast! I don't think Matt or I knew how much we would enjoy parenthood. We knew we'd like it, but man! Now, I know you experienced parents out there will say, "Wait for this year... now the discipline starts!"

Yeah, I guess so. But my sister-in-law was right when she said, "I always thought the stage they were in was my favorite. Then the next stage would come and I'd think, 'No, THIS is my favorite!'". She was definitely right. Heidi is more and more fun each day. We are so blessed and thankful that God has given her to us for this year, and we look forward to many more years of watching her grow.

What a sweetie! And I personally think she is a real smarty, because obviously (by the video below) she knows it's her birthday.

  1. Of course she is so smart! Just look at her mom and dad, not to mention her 4 fine grandparents...;)
    Love the video and the reflections.
    Love, Nana
