Has It Really Been One Year Since You Were Born?

Dear Cupcake #5,

Has it really been one year since you were born and I blogged about your grand entrance HERE?!!?

Has it really been one year since you were in my womb at your baby shower and then you were trying really hard to focus your eyes on your brand new world outside my womb? You finally got to wear your Lil' Cupcake outfit because you are our little Cupcake #5! 

Has it really been one year when we took these family photos of the Smith seven in the hospital?

Has it really been a year since you came home from the hospital with your cute cupcake onesie and pink bow in your hair?

Has it really been almost a year since your beautiful baptism on August 31, 2013?

Has it really been a year since you gave us that cute smile when you were 2 months old and took a picture with a plaque with your patron saint, Saint Therese of Lisieux?   Your middle name is Therese (pronounced "Ter-ez) and a friend of Daddy and Mommy's gave you this beautiful icon of St. Therese, the Little Flower.  You are our precious little flower, as well.

Has it really been a year since I snapped this photo of your big brother and his neighborhood
friend trying to calm you down and entertain you?  Has it really been a year that your sisters thought it would be so fun to put clip-on earrings on you that were about as big as you?  But, you didn't seem to mind the attention or jewelry style.

Has it really been just a few weeks ago that I caught you in action taking your first steps?  You were moving so fast (before you fell to your knees) that my picture of you with this milestone is very blurry!


I can't believe you are old enough to take a selfie with my iPhone and you will soon be old enough to know that eating sand at the beach is yuck-o!

Like you, we too are shocked that it really has been a year since you were born!   It seems that your first year frame that I have for you and your siblings was filling up fast as each month sped on by.    I'm looking forward to placing your 12 month picture in the frame soon! 

 Happy Birthday sweet baby girl!  You make us "SO HAPPY"! 

We are looking forward to celebrating your 1st birthday with you and our family!   You may need your shades while eating your cake, though.  Let's just say you are our little sunshine and your cake will always remind you of this fact. :)  Pictures of Cupcake #5 cake coming soon!

Happy Birthday!  We love you!

Happy Birthday to your baby!
It does indeed pass so very quickly...
This morning I filled out the school papers for my Madison...for the very last time as she is a senior! As I did it, her entire school career passed before my eyes...
Enjoy your sweet family! : )

Aw, happy birthday, precious girl! Loved looking at all the pictures of her first year! <3

Hi Billie Jo!

Thanks for stopping in and leaving your sweet comments! I can't believe I have a rising 9th grader and I'm sure it will be her senior year before I know it!

Thank you Patty for your birthday wishes! Yes, the year flew by for sure! :)

Hi Tiffany!
Thank you for the birthday wishes and I remember that hospital pic like it was yesterday! :)

Hi Annita!

Thanks for stopping in, as always, and commenting! It's amazing how much our little one has changed during the past year!
