Lovely Little Freja,
It is hard to believe that a year with you has already flown by. I cannot believe that little peanut with a mass of dark hair is now a little lady who can crawl and dang near stand up.
I have known your parents for a long, long time, but it wasn’t until you made your amazing appearance that I actually got to KNOW them—and let me tell you, they are great. They are funny, sweet, smart…I am so happy to call them friends.
But the greatest thing about them? They have endless love for you and Leo.
Every single time we would get together for your photos, it is very obvious you two are the center of their world. They would do absolutely anything for you. They know how to make your smile, they can sense when you’ve had just about enough of whatever is going on, and they are just as in awe of your firsts as you are.
When you look back at these pictures when you are older, I hope that is what you see. Yes, you might be prone to be embarrassed as a grinning, chubby-cheeked girl who was willing to share a part of her granola bar with her photographer. You may be mortified as everyone gushes a stream of “oh for cute!” or “too sweet!” But instead of being too perturbed, try to be understanding of the fact that Mom and Dad, they are just traveling back in time to a moment where you adored them just as much as they adored you. I hope you see your family and know that you truly lucked out to be with such a great bunch.
