happy birthday gwen!

Our baby is ONE! I cannot believe how quickly this year has passed. Gwenie has been, and continues to be, such a good and mellow baby. That is, until we go to church and she turns into an oily octopus.

And I must say, she is so cute. She occasionally folds her little hands during the prayer, says “hi” and “cat-cat” when she sees Finlo, and she loves to push noses to get them to beep.

She is getting better and faster at following Inez around. And I really enjoy watching Gwen watch Nezzie and also see them interact. It melts my heart to watch them play, hug, kiss and laugh. The song “Sisters” from White Christmas often runs through my mind when I am watching them together, and now that I thought about that song again it’s stuck in my head.

And even though she can’t (or maybe just refuses to) say anything remotely close to “Mama,” I just love her so much.

Here are a few glimpses of our year with our Gwenie girl.

    Happy Birthday Gwen!!! You are adorable and we love you! Can’t wait to see you again. Maybe you can talk your parents into a Disneyland trip soon:)

    BTW, Dave, if you are redoing the poster…maybe you should call it: Gwenacity. :) I can still see her little tenacious spirit trying to stand up, walk, move about, or whatever her task ahead might be.
