Eleanor Joy

Yesterday was Eleanor's first birthday. It is amazing to think that 1 year ago, we hadn't seen her smile or heard her giggle. All we had was this gorgeous pink girl with all the time in the world to get to know her.
It's also amazing to realize that I have no idea what she'll be like a year from now. She'll probably be talking plenty, if she's at all like her siblings. Will she be stubborn or compliant (yeah, okay, already know the answer to that one)? Will she be sociable or more self-contained? What will her voice sound like?

I can't wait to see what kind of person she's going to develop into, but I am so thankful for the gift and treasure that she is. She has brought an incredible amount of joy and delight into our home, and I can't imagine what our life would be like without her in it.

Happy Birthday, Little Girl
