Violette turns one! A year of 'firsts'

Dear Violette,

What a truly amazing year this has been. Difficult, filled with tears and sleepless nights, and going to work on 3 hours of sleep - but worth EVERY SINGLE tear, EVERY sleepless minute, EVERY moment of exhaustion. You brought so much joy into our lives and we simply cannot imagine our lives without your sweet little face and contagious smile. Your tiny little fingers, chubby cheeks, cute babbles, innocent laughter, your little hands around our necks - they make mommy and daddy want to GIVE YOU EVERYTHING we possibly can in order to assure you grow into a happy, healthy, wise girl whose heart is filled with faith, joy, and love of God. If you ever get to read this when you're older, please know that you are our whole world. We will try our best to be loving parents, to keep you safe from harm, and do what we can to help you on your own life journey. You will always hold a special place in our hearts as our first baby. We will love you until our last breaths no matter what life may throw at us or in between us. 1 year of your life is behind us and many more in front of us - we cannot wait to watch you grow into a beautiful young lady. But meanwhile, we want to enjoy our sweet little baby girl for as long as we can. Don't grow up too fast little girl. Stay little and cute! LOVE YOU.
