Dear Sarah Graves,
You might notice that this letter is a little late; I have been busy with your party and all sorts of other things. Anyway, I'm finally writing it now. I can't believe that you're already a year old! I spent the week leading up to your birthday remembering how I felt the same time a year before. What a difference a year makes! Who would believe that the little baby in my arms would grow into a big baby who runs, giggles, and has so much joy!
We had a snow storm that we refer to as Snowapalooza 2011 and oh did we enjoy having several days to be at home with you. Our street was frozen over with snow and ice making it so that we couldn't leave the house for a few days. You had a cold at the same time, so it was great to be at home to cuddle with you and try to make you feel better. You didn't stay feeling bad for long and were up and running pretty quick. I wish we could have a family lock-in more often.
