My sweet girl

We are quickly approaching Eliza 1st birthday. It has been a very long year for her and me. She was so sick from the very beginning of her life and she suffered for so long. We finally got her all well and the poof I get really sick. I am feeling better now and she is changing so much. I am really enjoying her. She is standing up wanting to walk and is so proud of herself when she pulls up and furniture. She jabbers like no tomorrow and really is confident that we can understand everything she is saying. She waves goodbye and has gotten chunky. This little girl struggled for so long gaining weight and now no longer on any baby food except formula she is gaining like crazy. She loves men. I am not sure why but not just any woman can console her but just about any male can. She prefers her oldest brother over me any day. And when her dad gets home oh man its over. She is all over him and he just loves that. Its a bit sad seeing her growing up but at the same time it is soooo much fun. This is the best age I think starting at a year all the way till just before terrible twos. I love her so much and am glad to have her in our family. I know that I will miss having a little one around but life must go on and one day she will be crying her eyes out because her baby is sick and she doesn't know what to do to help her.
