Happy 1st Birthday Hudson. Sweet baby girl, I have loved getting to be your mommy this past year. You have brought so much to our family. It was a journey bringing you home, but from the moment you arrived, we knew you were worth the wait. Your daddy and I not only loved and adored you from the moment we met you, but your siblings fell in love too. Watching them love on you this past year has been amazing, and watching you as you, too, adored them. It makes my heart swell to think about my three littles. This year you have grown and changed so much. You have pushed the limits, doing everything earlier and faster then your siblings, just trying to keep up with them. I keep saying, "slow down, baby girl" but you insist on growing up. You are the baby of the family, but I can tell that you won't let the "big kids" take advantage of you. You already let them know that you don't like when they take their toys and you hold strong when they try. I know that you will be all right.
Recently, you have become buddies with our puppy. As you two grow together, it will be fun to watch your relationship grow. Although you aren't a fan when he gets excited and tries to jump on you, you do love sharing your meals with him.
I love that your favorite toy is the chuck-it. You loved it so much, it made throwing the ball for Sadie rather difficult. So we got you your own mini version. You carry it around everywhere outside.
I know this next year will bring many more adventures and though I hope it does not go too quickly, I am excited to see your personality come through more and more.
We love you so very much, baby girl. Happy 1st Birthday Hudson.
