Happy 1st Birthday sweet girl. It is with a happy heart and teary eyes that I write you this letter to show you how much we have cherished our first year with you!… “I still remember…”
Dear Payton Reese,
I still remember… the countless hours of praying over you and knowing God already had His hand on your life.
I still remember… going 8 days over my due-date and wondering if you were ever going to grace us with your presence.
I still remember… your first poopy diaper and the disgusted look on your daddy’s face. He couldn’t believe something so yucky could come out of your sweet little body. I loved watching him squirm!
I still remember… your first roll over and the excitement of being mobile.
I still remember… your first “ma-ma” and “da-da” … even though you seem to prefer saying “ba-ba” more – its cool… no hard feelings.
I still remember… your first slow wobbly crawl that quickly turned into a speedy crawl. You are a mover!
I still remember… your first steps and the joy that shot out of your body with each unstable little step. Watch out world, Payton is coming for you!

All of these memories brings so many happy moments and treasured keepsakes, but the joy that is still ahead is what makes this milestone birthday a day to remember. Payton, I am so thrilled to continue to watch you become the little sweet girl that you are. God has his hand on you and your life and I am so thankful to walk this journey with you hand in hand.
Happy 1st Birthday Sweet Payton Reese! I hope you will always love and cherish this letter.
I Love You More Than You Will Ever Know.
