Our friend Candi took some great pictures of Ivy for her first birthday. Candi always seems to capture my kids just the way they truly are. Ivy is a sweet little lady. She is walking all over the house, almost running at times. She watches her big sisters intensely and mimics all their words. She isn't afraid to jump right in with their play, wether she is welcome or not. She sleeps well and generally goes with the flow. She loves picture books and gets really excited when it is time to read after bath. She is a wonderful snuggler and a joy to our days.
