Well hello, Wonderful! How does it feel to be 1 years old? Is your life fantastic, or just ordinary? Are you engaged, or bored to death? Can you feel the love? As for your mother and me, the last year has been the most enjoyable and rewarding of our lives. We have really enjoyed watching you become a little girl. You are a ball of fire. You prefer spicy and ethnic food. You have a sweet tooth like your father. You consume water like a fish, much like your mother. You hate when we do something for you and you really let us know that. You want to feed yourself, climb the stairs, comb your hair and brush your teeth, turn the page when we read our favorite Sandra Boynton book (Happy Hippo, Angry Duck), or even folding laundry. You are a do-er. A definite A-type personality. You smile and wave and say hello… to everyone, everywhere. You are the life of the party. And you, my dear, are the love of our life.
