Yes...that's right...
My little Nug is 1 today!!!!

Tristyn is 1 and Ashlee is getting her drivers license.
Wow. Craziness.

I cannot believe that it has been a year already.
Before I know it she will be walking across the stage getting her high school diploma
And then going off to college
And then getting married to Miles Verpooten
And then bringing my grandchildren to my house!
Can you tell that I'm having a mini meltdown?
OK OK OK Sarah VP...I now understand what you were whining about last year!

Having Tristyn has been the best thing I have ever done in my life.
She brightens up my day...
Every single day.
I am so lucky and happy that she is so smart and happy.
I am so excited to watch her grow this year.
To learn so many new things.
To walk and talk and tell me all about her day.
To go to the beach, play outside, make friends and eat new things.
I can't wait for her to give me a hug on her own
And to really say "Mom" and mean it...not just babble like she does now.

I LOVE YOU Tristyn Grace!!!
Happy First Birthday!!!

Remember when she was just the size of this capital o ---> O. Wow.

She's so big and beautiful. I love her smile!

Love your almost-auntie Sarah, your future husband Miles and your future father-in-law Dustin
