You have eyes the color for which there is no name.

You have eyelashes that appear to have been enhanced with mascara. But they're all yours.

You love to eat. Anything. All. The. Time.

You love your big brother. From a distance.

You play happily all alone. For hours.

You take killer naps.

You prefer to party in the middle of the night when the rest of the world is asleep.

You have twelve teeth. TWELVE!

You have dark hair that glitters red when you're in the sun.

You are afraid of no one and nothing. Except loud, unfamiliar sounds.

You would rather jump than walk.

You are a bit of a daredevil.

You love swinging super fast and super high on the swings.

You give kisses.

You say "hiiiiiiiii" in that sweet, high-pitched, girly voice.

You say "baby" and point whenever I feed you YoBaby yogurt.

You look at me and shake your head "no" whenever you are doing something you know you're not supposed to do.

You pretend to comb your hair when I say, "Pretty, pretty."

You can climb the stairs without so much as slipping a toe.

You love the water and don't care if you get splashed in the face.

You smile all the time and on demand, especially if a camera is present.

You were born minutes before midnight.

You were and are absolutely gorgeous.

You were the daughter I never knew I needed.

You are my little Lucy girl.

And today, YOU are one.

Happy birthday to my baby girl!


  1. Happy Birthday, Little Lucy!

    (Has it been a year already?)

  2. WOW, That FLEW by. Happy Brithday Lucy. You are a beautiful and special little girl who is lucky to have a wonderful family. Hope you had a blast. :)

  3. Your 1st line commanded my attention (it is so beautifully written).

    Our 13-month-old has 8 teeth - 4 on the top, 4 on the bottom.

    Unlike your Lucy, she barely eats anything! In fact, Tim and I keep saying how grateful we are that she is still nursing...

  4. I love you for writing that. That was beautiful.

    You are a wonderful mother.

    You are a poetic writer.

    You are a woman that I aspire to be.

    Happy 1st birthday, sweet Lucy, you are a lucky little girl! :)
