Today, my Della-girl, my sweet, sweet Ladybug, my gorgeous girlie who has brought immeasurable joy to my life…turned one. ONE year old. I can hardly believe it!


I love you, Della-Lou! You have added a piece to my heart that I didn’t even know was missing, and I am thankful to God for every second I get to spend with you.

P.S. Get a load of that fantastic tutu!! And it’s okay for me to call it fantastic because I didn’t make it. You’ll never believe who did, but you’ll have to wait for tomorrow’s Try-it Tuesday to find out!


  1. I realized a few months ago that our daughters share a first name. Today I found out they share a middle name too!! My Adelaide Elizabeth will be 7 in September!!

  2. I am so grateful for my daughter. I think a piece of my heart would have been missing if I never had her. Happy Birthday Della!

  3. She has so much hair for only being one. That is compared to my 16 month old! My daughter has hardly any hair at all!!

I love hearing from you guys!
