Tinzley's Cupcake Birthday

Today you turned one year's old.  You weigh around 20 pounds.  You are still wearing size 3 diapers and you no longer take any bottles.  You do not like peas or carrots but you will eat pretty much anything else.  You will literally put ANYTHING in your mouth.  You are happy 95% of the time.  You can say Mama, Dada, Bye Bye, Baby, Hi, and your own version of Jonas.  You stood by yourself for the first time two days ago.  You also do not mind getting dirty or scraped up.  You love to climb on anything you can.  Today we found you sitting in your rocking chair reading a book.  You are very independent.  You play extremely well by yourself.  You prefer me to anyone but Daddy is pretty good too.  You are nice to strangers but are still a little cautious when meeting new people.  You love to play.  You love music and you love to move to the music.  You have recently been trying to 'sing' when you hear music.  You put your hand up to your ear when we say hello, like you are talking on your phone (I do not know where you get this ;) )
You should also know that you have been one HUGE blessing this year.  You have brought joy and happiness to my life.  You have taught my patience.  You have taught me to love unconditionally and you taught me to be happy.  For that is what you are, you are patient, you are happy, and you love unconditionally.  So thank you!
We love you and look forward to many more years.
Love, Mommy
