Happy Birthday Tatum!

One year ago today, after an entire day of labor, and 4 minutes of pushing, out popped my 9 lb. 4 oz. baby girl!
(3 days old)
(1 wk shy of 1 yr)
Happy birthday to my baby girl. I've been in denial that this day was coming for about 2 months now. Tatum has been able to sit up by herself since she was 5 months old. And that's all she did for ever! She didn't start "crawling" until she was nearly 10 months old. And by crawling I mean pulling herself with her hands and then kicking with her feet. She looked more like a fish out of water. So I wasn't aware for 5 months that she was aging.But here she is, one year old and I can't believe it. She's the sweetest little girl you will ever meet. She is mellow and calm (like her father) and she has the biggest 2 tooth smile with the biggest dimples that will melt your heart.We wanted her so badly. After Spencer, I had 2 miscarriages in our attempt to have another baby. I started to think that it wasn't possible. But now I know that without the loss of those 2 babies, I never would have had Tatum Eliza.

Happy birthday baby girl! I love you so very much...

Thanks Kellie! I can't believe it went by so fast. So baseball... count us in, but we'll probably have to take turns in the field so someone can watch Tate. ;)
