|ONE? No really, that can't be right. But yes it's true, although I can barely believe it. I can also barely believe that she hasn't appeared on the blog until now. I meant to post when she was born, and then a million times after that, but it was a whirlwind of a year as any new mom can understand. Anyway, my husband and I are blown away by how amazing, sweet, and adorable she is. She is an amazing sleeper, she's extremely snuggly, and when she needs something she just gives a subtle whine and rarely ever breaks into a full-blown cry... we have no idea how we got so lucky. She is an observer, yet very vocal and fiercely independent... I'm pretty sure she got all of that from me.
Anyway, here is her past year in photos. I must give credit to Kristin G.. and Amanda (both on my staff) for doing these amazing photos for us!
And so we begin with our sweet Alyssa's newborn photos...
