We did not know that you were a missing link from our family. Sweet Scarlett, you are just what we needed to make us bigger and better. We love your smiles and your hugs and your stubborn streak. We occasionally love your midnight happy hour playtime.
Caroline and Jackson were very surprised to wake up on a Sunday morning one year ago and find out that they had a sister. They had no clue that we had left the house and Mrs Kaleena had been sleeping on their couch. You came quickly into this world. You are a force to be reckoned with.
Can you see how much that they loved you? They had been waiting for this exact moment for 9 months. They dealt with a cranky mommy and their space being taken over by baby gear. Today you take comfort in your "big kids" and you laugh at their attempts to amuse you. I could not do each day without them.
You have a do-it-yourself attitude. There is nothing that you cannot do. You walked at 9 months, climbed on the couch at 10 months, and climbed out of your crib at 11 months. Thankfully, you have not repeated the climbing out of your crib thing. Scarlett, you are an eater and will try anything we put in front of you.
Your sweet brother called from Disney World today to wish you a Happy Birthday. You had a smash cake that you wouldn't touch, but your Memaw and Grammie were here to laugh at you anyway.
Happy Birthday Scarlett!
