Happy 1 year Birthday to my daughter !!


Alissa turned 1 yesterday !!  It truly is amazing how time flies and how much kids change and develop over the course of a year.  I watched her go from lying helplessly on the floor to running around opening cabinets & doors, chasing Jax, hitting Jax, feeding Jax, talking, giving attitude, etc. But it has been an extremely blessed and enjoyable year.  We made it through the first year with no emergencies, and excellent health except for one small bout with croup (baby strep throat)…and that was it.  Of course we’ve gone through the not so fun times that every parent experiences….the teething, the sleepless nights, the changing of blowouts (Ugghh)…but it’s all part of the journey right ?  My wife and I have had nothing but wonderful times with our little lady…and what better way to remember those times than through photos.  And I sware, it seems like she had me take a pic of her in every outfit. I thought I would share a few photos starting back from Day 1.  I also have to thank my parents, my in-laws, and my sister for all of the free babysitting services provided so that we could still have our date nights 🙂

The rest of the photos are from Alissa’s “unofficial” 1 year old shoot. My wife came up with some ideas, and we just went out and played around a bit.

Happy Birthday Alissa !!!
