Jessna's new milestones:
*pulling up on everything
*cruising on furniture
*looking at books for a period of time
*putting everything in her mouth- she has eaten stickers, cat food, cat litter, paper (yuck!)
*she signs "more" when she wants more food
*throwing food and milk bottle on the floor- means "I'm done!"

Happy one year old today, sweet girl! When I found out I was pregnant, deep down in my heart I wished for a girl. I couldn't believe that God granted my wish and you were born! I regret to say that the first few months of your life were very hard for me and you. We both cried a lot because you didn't want to nurse. It's ok, because we made it through and we are still bonded together. I look into your eyes and hear you say "mama" and my heart just melts. You are so precious to me and I'm glad that God chose to put you in my arms. You are completely different than your brother and it was fun to watch you grow and do things in your own time. I love your sweet smile and adorable giggle. I love watching you imitate your daddy and laugh with your brother. You have brought so much joy to our lives and I have to say that you are the cutest baby girl ever! I look forward to all the fun we can have together as mommy and daughter. For now, I will still hold you close as I give you your night-night bottle and relish the way you touch my face and bump your forehead to mine. Sweet dreams, little one. God loves you and so do I!
