BiRtHdAy GiRl

Our sweet Chloe turned 1 on Dec. 7th.  She experienced a lot of "firsts" throughout her first year of life.  Here are a few for you to enjoy:
Her first summer & first swimming experience.

Her first swing.

Her first bestie, Emery.

Her 1st birthday party and cake.

Her first Christmas program at school.

Her first bowling experience in Abilene at her 1st birthday celebration with family.

Her first encounter with Santa Claus.

Her first Easter.

Her first 4th of July.

Her first time to honor her Daddy on Father's Day.

Her first public dedication to the Lord at Hillside CC.

Her first time to honor her Mommy on Mother's Day. (Daddy helped them make this wonderful frame.)

Her first big girl chair.

Her first big snow in Amarillo.

Her first plane ride.

Her first Thanksgiving.

Her first Build-A-Bear.

Her first allergic reaction. (Don't know if you can see the rash in this pic or not but it wasn't fun.)

Her first trip to the Pumpkin Patch and first hayride.

Her first Halloween as the cutest little bee around.

Her first Valentine's Day.

Her first breaths in this world & first pic with Mommy and Daddy.

Her first Christmas.

 I can't believe she is already 1 year old.  Time has gone by way too quickly.  I tell both girls all the time that I wish I could put them in a bubble and keep them exactly the way they are... forever.  Unfortunately, they grow up and it happens very quickly.  I am so very thankful that the Lord has blessed us with two sweet, healthy girls to love on and guide as they continue to grow. 

Chloe Layne, you are precious and I love you more than you will ever know.  I can't wait to see what the Lord has in store for you in this life.  He has created you with love and perfection for a specific purpose and I will do my best as your Mother to encourage you to seek Him wholeheartedly to fulfill that purpose.  I love you to the moon and back sweet girl!
