This post...

...has had me emotional all afternoon. (okay, for the last 2 weeks)

 
And has been 1 year in the making.

HAPPY 1ST BIRTHDAY LAYLA

Layla, you came in to our family and made us complete. A baby girl, following 2 very busy boys! 

You brought a needed calmness to our home, as well as the sweetest spirit. 
You taught your big brothers how to love someone littler than themselves.

Then came your funny, independent, willful, and mischievous personality.
(this is her plotting-face)

Really, feet on the table?
You are known as:
Layla
baby girl
Honey-girl
trouble maker
little sister
princess

Layla, you make us so happy. You make us laugh, and you know how to frustrate your brothers! You are already way too smart, and keep us on our toes... We can't wait for all that is to come. And with more tears, of pure happiness, in my eyes I speak for all of us when I say
WE LOVE YOU.



And check out just how daring this girlie is, already. We are in trouble!

Awwwe, you made ME get emotional!... Because of how connected our girls are and the experiences we've had with them so close in age. I just love that Layla girl. HAPPY BIRTHDAY sweet heart. By the way, Grace would NEVER be that daring on the slide. That is awesome!

I can't believe how much older she looks. Happy Birthday Layla! What an awesome thing it is to be a mom.

Happy Birthday to our sweet Layla...our first grand daughter (barely). I just know you are going to keep us all on our toes for years to come as you declare your independence (and dominance) with those brothers. You remind me a great deal of your mother...as a teenager!!! ha ha

Good luck, Lindsey
