It's been a year FULL of "Jubilee"!

What was I doing this time last year?  Probably sleeping!  32 hours of no food or water + a looonnng delivery = one tired new mommy!  It was soooo much fun though.  (as I look back a year later) haha!

Caleb and I could not be any happier to have Mia Jubilee in our lives.  We still feel like we are in the "newlywed" stage of parenting.  We still stare at her while she sleeps, thank Father for her ALL the time, stare at her while she plays, talk about how AMAZING she is, love on her, laugh at her, and tell her we love her 100 times a day.  I used to joke around saying that Mia probably thought "I love you" was her name because I said it to her so often.  Needless to say, we are STILL smitten.

Even though it made me a little sad to see how time flew by the first few months of her life, I'm not sad that she is turning one.  I was intentional about trying to really soak up every single day so far and feel like it's helped me be ready for this first birthday.  My baby is one, but my baby is still a baby.  :)  And a very JOYFUL one at that.

Just a little glimpse into our daily life with Mia.  We were driving to our friends' house last night and all of a sudden we hear Mia chuckling in the back seat.  She couldn't see us at all, but she had put her monkey on top of her head and was waiting for us to notice.  She thought it was so funny!  When we did notice, I said "Where's Mia?" and she giggled a little longer before pulling the monkey off of her face and doing it again.  This little girl is seriously FULL of joy.  She LOVES to play jokes and make people laugh.  She is just plain 'ol FUN!

So if you're needing a laugh, just come visit!  We love all of you so much and are thankful for all of your love for our sweet little ONE year old! :)

Have a great day!
