happy 1 year to my isla may! yesterday this little girl turned 1.
we have just arrived in redmond and we are excited to get settled. i am going to post some pictures of our adventures on our road trip. get excited. that is all for another time, right now i want to focus on our little isla.

you are a beautiful girl and such a sweet, sweet baby. we have felt nothing but blessed with you! i remember a year ago i was so excited to have you coming into our family, but at the same time i was nervous that i wouldn't have enough love for another baby. i knew the second that you were born that i was wrong about that. the doctor handed you to me and you rested on my chest and i wanted to cuddle you next to me forever. i'm getting all teary and snot faced right now, because i know those days are gone. you are a big girl and you want all of us to know that. you can't walk quite yet, but you won't let us carry you. you WILL walk. you feel big when you talk on the phone or when you pretend to read mom's books (most of the time outloud) and when you "dress" yourself. while all this independence makes me feel the loss of my baby, i simply can't wait to see all you learn and discover this year. i love you my sweet baby.

i took these pictures when we were readying to they are a week early, i thought i would take a picture of our surroundings at the time.
