Jolie turns 1!

*More pictures to come......
Jolie turned 1 on March 19th and it was bittersweet.  It was fun because I decided to do a traditional Korean Dol party.  She wore a beautiful habok from Kiana Roper, and we even had her do a doljabi game.  The sad part for me was to reflect on how fast time goes.  

The following week was Spring Break and I took her in to Tom's for a little photo shoot.  This is a little fairy dress that Josie also wore at her 1 yr photo shoot.  I thought I would devote this post to capture Jolie at this fun age. At age 1, Jolie says:  "mama, dada, der (there), baby, hi and bye."  She signs:  thank you, more, all done, dog and the occasional please.  She is not walking at 12 1/2 months-she still prefers to be carried.  And I have to admit that I still love it.  She loves waving hello & goodbye , blowing kisses and giving high fives.  Jolie sleeps from 8pm-7:30am at night and takes almost a 3 hr nap in the afternoon with her brother & sister.  I dropped her morning nap before the others did so that all 3 would be down at the same time. 

Jolie your personality is sweet and generally easy-going, except we have seen a more feisty side the past few weeks.  I love the way you pat your baby dolls and how you bobble side to side when you hear a song you like.  It melts my heart when you fold your hands to pray.  We also love how you like to play in your crib.  When I walk in you are standing along the side & then I come to get you and you fall down & pull a blanket over your head and giggle.  Sometimes I com in and peek on you and Josie when you are sleeping.  It's very calming.  I love to see you snuggled up on your tummy with your legs tucked underneath and your little bottom sticking up.  When I need a smile I just tickle you and listen to you laugh.  One of my prayers for you is that you will know just how beautiful you are because you are fearfully & wonderfully made by God himself!  I love you....  
I normally don't like pictures of me but I love this picture of us.  Although I think it's about time to use the anti-wrinkle cream.

I love this profile picture.
