happy 1st birthday, lyla

dearest our dear lyla,
a year ago today, our world was never the same. they say that going from 1 kid to 2 will rock your world and turn it upside down. we were told that if we stressed over one, get ready to multiply that by 4. and while at times, it is true...with a sweet girl like you lyla, we wouldn't mind having 5. you are amazing. i can't even wrap my mind around the thought of you being any more perfect to us. you are so incredibly sweet. laid-back. happy. fascinated. quiet. i thanked God for you the day that you were born and continue to thank Him every day. we love every ounce of your being and then some.your big sister feels the same way we do. the way she looks at you while constantly wanting to hold you and be "your best friend" will melt a heart in seconds. she is possessive of you. proud of you. always there for you. and at the moment, your big sister is still willing to share with you. ya'lls relationship amazes me, and i hope that it continues to flourish and be as tight as the bond that i share with my own sisters. she loves you, and i don't want you to ever forget that.your family loves you more than anything, sweet little lyla. happy first birthday! xoxo,
