You are one.

My little lovebug,

Today, you turn one year old.  It's not your first birthday because your first birthday was one year ago.  And what a first birthday you had!  I remember just about every second of that amazing day when we were finally introduced to your sweet, sweet face.  You were so tiny - much smaller than we had expected you'd be, and so much lovelier than I ever dreamed you could be.  I'm sad to say I barely remember what your cry sounded like back in those early days because, my darling girl, you hardly complained. To this day you surprise us with your unwavering exuberance and endless smiles.

It has been incredible watching you day after day become the perfect little one-year-old you are today. You're such a little explorer who loves discovering new places and people.  I don't know if I've ever come across a friendlier baby - there's a smile on your face every time we meet someone new, and excited screams when you see someone you know.  Whether you're bouncing up and down to a good song, pretending to be on a phonecall with your hand, or lifting up my shirt to blow raspberries on my belly, you bring unending joy to my world.

My love for you grows deeper and wider with each passing second.  Your papa and I pinch ourselves every day that we get to spend our lives with you and call you our daugther.  We could not be prouder.

We love you, Avienne!  Happy birthday, my love!  You are a treasure.

So cute and tiny! I can't believe how much she's changed in a year.

All the best in the year to come with your beautiful fille :)
