My princess turned 1 on Wednesday and I can't believe it! She's wearing the Birthday outfit I bought her (that I've been wanting for a while). I'm kind of obsessed with it for the moment because I love Russian dolls and Dahlia looks so cute in it. When she put the beaded necklace on her head yesterday I just had to get a photo of her as my little hippie baby.

She's such a joy and as active as they come. She's a very smiley baby and gives other people reason to smile as they pass us. Little tantrums have begun and it can be very frustrating when she needs my help but does NOT want it. But, I love it at the same time. I love her fiery and very communicative personality and I'm glad she can hold her own. Here's to strong girls!

She loves climbing up on to things and one of her latest favorites is a tin can (photo below). She is joy to my heart. I love my little Dahlia.
