08/08/08 What a cool day to have your birthday Julia.

My little Ju Ju is a year old today. Oh my gosh 1 freakin year has passed! Where did the time go? I will tell you- let's just say this has been one of the longest years of my life. I held Julia for 3 months straight as she dealt with colic...and then if it wasn't colic it was something else...but you know- it has all been worth it...so very worth it. It is hard to believe one year ago we didn't have her in our lives yet. I was big and pregnant and in labor all day as we tried to finish redoing and painting the girl's room. Thinking about those days- especially after Julia was born makes me tired just thinking about it.

Julia is a strong independent little girl. She tells you what she wants... She has this "don't mess" kind of attitude which I will try not to damper- I figure spirits like this who have a testimony of the Gospel will take down evil as it comes their way- we need fighters!

Last night Julia woke up at 10 o'clock bright eyed and ready to play. So we played...I never get one on one time with her. She was so cute. She was giggling with me- taking steps. I kept trying to just soak up the moment and enjoy her littleness. It was a great way to appreciate her without Kenzie trying to push her over or stealing all her toys from her. Happy Birthday my little Ju Ju.
