Happy Birthday, my baby!

Today is the big day! Lydia is 1! Here are some pictures from her exciting life.

It all started at Jordan Valley Hospital (sooner than we were expecting). Here are her big sisters, eager to hold her!

She had the tiniest feet I have ever seen! She still does, too!

Lydia ready to go home from the hospital after almost a week...I wasn't so sure about taking home such a tiny baby. She was two pounds smaller than my last baby!
Lydia's first bath at home. She likes the tub a lot more now!

Jenna, Aubrey & Lydia on Easter 2007

The girls with Grandma Great- Tim's grandma Clara Donaldson. Lydia's middle name is in honor of Grandma Great and my Great Grandfather, Clarence Watson.

Lydia is well traveled! This is with Abi and Emma in Connecticut when she was just 3 month old.
When Lydia was first learning to crawl, she was really good at going backwards. Here she wedged herself in the toy box. She was angry and crying until she saw the camera- then came a smile!
I'm not sure what she ate to elicit this reaction!
If you say "cheese" to Lydia, this is the face you get. She was eating a cucumber here.
She is such a happy baby!

I was quite surprised when we found out we were going to have another baby, but now I can't imagine our family without Lydia! Looking back on the last year, I can't believe how quickly it has gone and how blessed we are! Realizing that I could have missed it all, I know how blessed I am to be here!
Lydia is such a joy to have in our family! I treasure the quiet moments we have together and love that she loves to snuggle with me. She loves her sisters and they love her! She is daddy's girl and demands his attention when he comes home from work! (He doesn't complain!) What an angel!
Happy Birthday, Dolly!

Such cute pics! I especially love the cheeser of her eating the cucumber. I can't believe how quickly this year has gone by too!

She looks like dad!! only prettier.We had fun at the party, and the cake was so yummy. I am with you, I can't believe it has been a year since those few crazy days. Glad you are both happy and healthy!

Oh, bean... she is such a cute girl! I hope we can get together soon. I think I blew the last one! Coming for the Scandinavian festival this year? I have to buckle down and survive 5 weeks and then it's all play! (well that and moving, but still...)

Loves to you and the girls!
