Happy Birthday, Annalisa!

Our baby girl is 1 today!

Annalisa Karin was born at 3:30 pm on September 11, 2008. She had bright, big eyes that she loved to open. Lee called her "Pretty Eyes" for a long time. She has always been a very observant baby, and loves to discover new things. Her latest discovery is with her voice, as she imitates sounds and words.

Anna has been such a joy in our lives already. She walked at 10 1/2 months, and is tough enough to keep up with her big brother, and often, win. She thinks big brother Lee is hilarious, and he loves her right back. Just yesterday, as we drove home from the motor test, they would reach across the back seat and give each other five, and then both laugh hysterically.

It has been a privilege to watch Annalisa grow up this past year. We can't imagine our family without her.

Happy birthday, my precious one.

Awww...they grow to fast. I love the photo of Anna in the blue and white striped shirt with little pig tails and teary eyes. How precious.

Happy Birthday Anna, I'm so glad you know so many things already, and I miss being with you to share your special day. She sure did a good job blowing out that candle. Wow! Horray and Happy Birthday!
