My beauty..

Okay well.. here is a few shots of my London, as if you all haven't seen pictures of her EVERY DAY.. but these are special because it is for her 1st birthday (March 22nd) and also because my friend Jen did them. Jen continues to surprise me with more and more talents that she has up her sleeve for just about everything.. She did an awesome job. If you are interested in looking at her website it is: http://jenheremphotography.blogspot.com/ .
I sure love my little London.. she has given me so much happiness this past year. I told everyone when I was pregnant with her - that she had big shoes to fill with coming after her brother, Isaiah (because of his personality and his good looks.. he he) and she came out with her very own personality that we have all grown to just adore. She definitely holds her own.. if her brother is teasing her, oh boy.. you better watch out. We love her little raspy voice.. she has such a sensitive little spirit.. she will pucker for like 5 minutes before she even starts to cry and my heart just melts. She doesn't do anything she doesn't want to. Isaiah would just perform on demand for me.. with her, she will just sit and stare at strangers as they are talking to her and she actually makes them feel dumb like.. "why are you looking at me??" Just as in these pictures.. she knew I wanted her to smile and she did the opposite the WHOLE time. She LOVES her big brother, and he loves her just as much. Her eyes sparkle when she hears his voice in the other room. It's precious. But one of my favorites is that she loves to snuggle.. she lays down on my chest or my shoulder and I could just stay in that position all day, even if I had important places to be, I would miss them just so I could enjoy that moment. She does everything on "London's time"- she didn't roll over until she was like 9 months old.. and lately she found "her" way of crawling.. she looks like a funny spider. I couldn't be more blessed than to have this child enter my life almost a year ago. In my eyes, she is a perfect miracle.
