|My dear Greta,
You turned 1 over a month ago now and I finally found a moment to sit down to post some photos and write to you! I'm sorry honey but thank you for being so understanding. :) I know you will be OK with this tardiness...it's part of who you are - forgiving and patient. This past year has been a rollercoaster as our little family endured some of the biggest changes and challenges we have ever faced. From the moment you came into our lives though, you have been our constant sunshine and you have brought us so much peace. It's pretty crazy how life can completely catch you off-guard and then you look at your kids and they help bring you back to solid ground...and they make you smile. Every single day I am smiling because of you sweet Greta.
You are walking all over the place now and trying desperately to keep up with your brother. It brings me so much joy to see the two of you play and laugh together. Now, don't get me wrong, it isn't always peachy between the two of you, but let me tell ya, I hold on dearly to those happy moments. :) You love your mommy but I think you are becoming a daddy's girl, as the moment he walks in the door you squeal and get over to him as fast as you can. Witnessing that is one of my favorite moments of the day. :)
How a full year since your birth has already gone by, I will never know. I do hope that this year is a bit more calm...though I have a feeling that might be just wishful thinking. :) I love you more than you will ever know sweet daughter of mine.
