2: It's a... | I was lucky to have an early ultrasound to determine your due date, and they captured this adorable picture of you! Your dad and I thought it would be fun to remember the gender reveal through photography. As many pink balloons were released from our decorated box, we learned baby number three would be a beautiful baby girl! Unlike my previous two pregnancies, you decided to hang in there a little closer to due date. My dear friend, Melissa, surprised me with cookies to lift my spirits. | Worth the Weight: PREGNANCY | girl!

4: Today you came into this world and changed my life forever. Today is the day we have been counting down for months and months. Today you took your first breath. Today and forever I will be here for you. Today I have felt so blessed. Today I was exhausted. Today you looked into my eyes and knew I was your mom. Today I was filled with love and gratitude. Today Daddy and I named you Hadley. I will never forget holding you for the first time today. | hadley grace

7: On March 23, 2013 at 7:25 am you were born at Western Missouri Medical Center in Warrensburg, Missouri. You were so tiny (just 7lbs 1oz) and so perfect! When I held you for the first time, I was so overwhelmed with emotion, and knew I loved you from the start! You're part of a big family that also loves you. Your big sisters, Peyton & Alayna were in awe of you and more than excited to hold you on their laps! We couldn't wait to take you home!

9: One thing I never tire of is showing off my new bundle of joy to friends and family. Unlike your big sisters, you were a very fussy baby so quick holds were all you allowed before you were quickly returned to mom. It's hard to believe that only seven short years ago we were just a couple. Just two. Now, with the birth of Hadley, we are a family of five.

71: Peyton has been a wonderful big sister to you! From the first time she saw you, she is always willing to help out, comfort you when you cry and attempt to pack you around. She talked to you every night when you were in my tummy, and there is no doubt your special bond started long before birth!

94: JellyStone - Lawrence, KS | It has been more fun than I could have imagined camping with an infant. I'm sure next year will be totally different with you toddling all over the place. I have really enjoyed watching you grow and change in between camping trips.
95: Yogi Bear was the funniest. He made your sisters laugh when he tried to take you for a walk in your stroller by himself.
96: My Daddy and Me | Your Daddy is totally wrapped around your little finger and has been from day one. You are one lucky little girl to have such a loving dad to always support you and be there to lend a hand if needed.

100: My Mommy & Me | Hadley, you are such a mommy's girl. If I am around, you are probably being packed around on my hip. I absolutely LOVE all the kisses and snuggles you are always giving me. I have also become very fond of our time at night spent rocking in your room before going to bed!
101: Hadley you are one cute and kissable little girl with the most beautiful big blue eyes!

105: Presents | For your first birthday we threw you a Monster Bash party and lots of friends and family came. You received so many fun, adorable presents you are sure to enjoy! You colored a monster, built a monster out of play-doh and adopted a plush monster toy. The party concluded with the usual cake smashing and singing of Happy 1st Birthday to Hadley!
106: Cake! | Time for
107: Birthday Wishes | There was never a doubt that you would completely enjoy your cake! You love sweet treats and feeding yourself. Within seconds of placing the cake on your tray, you had completely smashed it and had webbed fingers from the sticky cake frosting. No worries though, you kept on squishing and licking your hands. Everyone enjoyed the show! It's hard to believe you are officially ONE!

109: Dear Hadley, | This photobook is a way to preserve some sweet memories of your first year of life, and a way for you to look back on some important milestones and adventures that you won't even be able to remember! This book is a way for us to show you how much we love you, and feel SO blessed to have you in our lives. You are a healthy, happy and beautiful little girl! You were not an easy baby your first two months of life. Many hours were spent cuddling, rocking and dancing to pass the crying times. You underwent a minor procedure to correct your tongue tied condition. Soon after your recovery, you became the happiest, silliest and most ornery little girl! You're always smiling and giggling, and are best friends with your big sisters, Peyton & Alayna. You're a girly girl, and love dollies and jewelry! Here are some of your other most important milestones and memories from your first year: By 3 months you giggled for the very first time By 6 months you had a mouth full of teeth and were ready for food...You have been one MESSY girl! At 7 months you could sit comfortably by yourself At 10 months you were crawling By 11 months old you were pulling yourself up to standing, and cruising around holding onto furniture Around then you said your first words: "Momma" then "Dadda" then "Papa" for Peyton and "Rara" for Alayna When you were almost 14 months old, you took your first steps | Love, Mommy & Daddy | This year has been full of important milestones and we've loved watching you grow from a tiny new-babe to a sweet little toddler who's full of giggles & personality! We've also done lots of fun things, been to many new places together & spent time with friends and family. You're part of a big, happy family that all love you so much, and hopefully this photobook will play a part in showing you!
