I’m passing up on Friday Confessions today, because I have to dedicate this post to a very special little monkey…
Today, I’m sending Happy 1st Birthday wishes to my beautiful niece, Neve!!!
It’s hard to believe it’s been a whole year since Nevie came into our lives. It’s been a wonderful year watching her grow & learn, and I have to say she’s one of the smartest little cookies I know!!
It was a bit of a surreal experience, watching my little brother become a dad. Luke & Amanda have done an awesome job as first-time parents, and today we celebrate their happy, inquisitive, funny little girl who has developed SUCH a personality!!
Nevie, I love snuggling with you. I love your big smile, and the way wrap your left hand up in my hair while you suck your thumb. I love your big blue eyes. I love that you say “woof” and roar like a bear, and when someone asks you what Grandma says, you still roar like a bear! I love watching you with your cousins and seeing how much they love to play with you and help to feed you.
I think it’s safe to say… I love EVERYTHING about you!!
Tonight, we’ll gather to celebrate Neve’s first birthday, and I’m sure there will be lots of picture-taking, present-opening, and cake-eating… and lots of love and snuggles for our little moneky!
Happy Birthday, Nevie! This proud auntie loves you so much! xoxo
