I can't believe my little Hydie Bug is already a year old! It seems like yesterday I was flying back to Mississippi to prepare for her arrival. She is such a blessing and I thank God every day that He blessed John and I with such a perfect little girl! Hydie is officially 21 lbs. and 30 inches long. She is standing alone quite a bit more now and I am thinking any day she will be taking those first steps. She has become such a beautiful LITTLE GIRL. John is finally giving me permission to say she is a little girl now instead of a baby. She definitely has her daddy wrapped around her little finger.
We had a very successful first birthday party! Hydie loved her cake and ice cream! She was too cute eating the polka dots off one by one. We can't thank everyone enough for all the gifts and helping with the party! She received so many fun toys, books, and well needed clothes! John and I bought Hydie a bounce house to play in during the long winters here. So all the kiddos had tons of fun jumping and playing in the ball pit. Well, John will be leaving again soon. We are very sad to have to say goodbye again (and this time it will be a pretty long goodbye) but we will make it through. To break up the time, Hydie and I will be coming to Mississippi for a few months visiting.
