Belle Is Ringing "One"


On your first birthday, we want to say thank you.

Thank you for showing us how a little girl can bring a man to his knees with a simple smile.

Thank you for being what and who you are. Your personality is coming alive more and more every day, and with it you are slowly unwrapping yourself and showing us the person you will be.

Thank you for humbling me.

Thank you for giving me perspective in life.

Thank you for being momma's shopping buddy; I don't know how many more times I could spend a Saturday afternoon shopping.

Thank you for showing Jaxson how much he can love someone. Seeing him giving you kisses in the morning and just before bed time makes us smile and hopeful of a bright future for both of you.

Thank you for being my little girl. Who knew I could be wrapped around such a little finger.

Thank you for all the late nights and early mornings. Watching the room brighten as the sun rises with you in my arms is a great way to start a day - no matter how early you decide to wake up.

Thank you for being you.

Happy Birthday Miss Belle, we all love you and wish you only the best and brightest future.

-Dadda, Momma, and Jaxson

"So be sure when you step, step with care and great tact. And remember that life's A Great Balancing Act. And will you succeed? Yes! You will, indeed! (98 and ¾ percent guaranteed) Kid, you'll move mountains."
