Well, that was fast.

Erin is one year old today. She has gone from this:Erin's First Six Months (Selection) 010

to this:

and I couldn't be more proud and happy and sappy.

We're in Anaheim for the rest of the week because we're taking her to Disneyland today and then having a party on Saturday.

I love this little girl of mine. And her mom does too.

Lawyering Mom Writes Poetry:

You Are One

flailing, crawling, walking

wailing, babbling, talking

throughout your life you have been many things

throughout my life you will be many things

but today you are just

One.

Happy Birthday, baby girl.

Happy Birthday Erin.

(Whatever they say, if you're fast enough to get your hand in there, they won't get mad if you grab a handful of cake, or at least icing.)

Headless Mom said...

Happy Day, Erin!

Oh it goes too fast.

Btw, she shares a b-day with my friend Kelly's daughter, as if you care...

Isn't it just amazing how much they change from 0 to 1? The change from 1 to 2 is equally amazing and fabulous.

Happy Birthday Erin.

Hope you all have a fabulous holiday.

Happy first birthday, Erin, and happy first year to your parents!

It's stunning to me what that first year of life brings when you're lucky enough to be a part of it. Now every year after that one seems to go by even faster!

Enjoy your time at Disneyland!

Your daughter is adorable! I love your "dadventures." My husband is a SAHD and as happy as can be. Check out his blog- he could use some readers :) http://thebirdsgottheword.blogspot.com (My birthday's today!)

Happy birthday to your family! (because a family was born the same day she was!)

nykittenpihappy birthday, kiddo!

That first picture is cracking me up, with the mouth wide open. Somehow, it reminds me of Calvin, or maybe Olivia, who both always have something to say. Cute stuff.
