Happy Birthday Elsie



Precious Elsie, I can't believe that you are one today!  My heart is so full of love for you precious baby.  I pray for you, laugh with you, hug and snuggle you even if you won't snuggle me back - I always will.  Your favorite games are peek-a-boo, ball, chase, and tackle.  You are chatty, you have determination and persistence, and you laugh a lot especially when you are tired.  You can say, "mama, dada, and wow" and also lots of non-words (that sound like full sentences).  When you are hungry you smack your mouth together.  When you are full you spit your food out of your mouth and throw it on the ground (and if prompted you do the sign for 'all done').  When you are tired you snuggle with any stuffed animal or pillow you can find.  To say good night, you pucker up and give long distance kisses.  You stand up on everything, but won't let us help you learn to walk.  You fall off of things, and out of things, and into things.  You are easily entertained, love to play by yourself, and also seem to enjoy other kids.  We love you Elsie, we love you so very much.  

Here's a picture review of Elsie's first year...
