A year's gone by,
how time has flown,
I can't believe
how much she's grown!
   She's such a joy
And so much fun,
OH MY, Look Whoo’s
Turning one!

I can't believe that my little one will soon be one, today she is 11 months! 11 months! She is talking, walking, and getting so big I can't stand it. If someone would have told me 10 years ago when I was 16 that I would be married with 3 kids before I turned 26, I would have laughed at them, and yet here I stand.

Catherine has been a joy since the day she was born. I couldn't ask for a happier baby. Even with her sleep habits and now her allergies, she is almost always happy. I wish I could be more like that.  So, let's recap a little.....August 1st 2009, 11pm, my water breaks, (10 days early) we rush to the hospital thinking that the baby is coming as quickly as Paige, only to get to the hospital and stay up all night and have not arrive until 1pm!!!! She does things in her own good time. At 1:42pm, Catherine Leiran Criswell came into this world, weighing 6lbs 15oz and just as beautiful as she could be. In that moment all was right in the world
 It's crazy how quickly your babies grow, they are so little and so helpless in those first few moments, then you blink and they are taking their first steps, blink again they are walking across a stage. In exactly one month Catherine will be a toddler, and the world will be hers to explore. I can't wait to see what God has in store for her but at the same time I wish she would stay little forever!! Happy 11 months birthday Cassie baby!
