Malia Turned ONE!!!

Happy Birthday Malia!!!When I think back on this last year, and how insanely fast it went by I can't help but be a little sad that my baby is already one.

But, it has not only been one of the best years for our little family in every aspect, but the joy of having Malia in our lives has been so amazing. Words could not express how much that little chunka-monk is loved.

When we first learned that I was pregnant with Malia I was 100% sure it was a boy. I just knew it. And our first 2 ultrasounds confirmed my feelings. It was a boy! You can imagine our surprise when the 3rd ultrasound (I was lucky enough to get an ultrasound at each visit) revealed we were having a little girl! Girl #3! I will admit that I was shocked, but looking back now and knowing that Heavenly Father gives us exactly what we need, I am so grateful for my Malia.

She is our joy, our love and we have been so lucky to have her in our family.

Happy Birthday Malia, aka: Me-me, Leah, monkey, Me-uhs, chunks, Lee-lee (she has a lot of nick-names...we better lay off the chunks or she might have a complex...but who can help it with those irresistibly kissable chunky cheeks!!!)

I'm very honored to say that I was there when she was born and I still get teary when I think about that special moment. Oh I'm such a mush!

I can't believe it has already been a year since Malia was born. I'll never forget spending the time with you guys in the hospital. It was an amazing experience and Malia will always be dear to my hear! :D Give her Birthday wishes from us! We love you all!
