A Baby No More!

Happy 1st Birthday Berlin Mae Erickson!
As you may or may not know on this date one year ago I gave birth to a 9lbs 5oz 23 inches long baby girl that changed Michael and my life forever. Tears laughter and then more laughter at the size of our new daughter filled the room. She was the most beautiful baby I had ever seen and right away I could see both Michael and I in her face and that alone brought tears to my eyes. Berlin is such a special gift from god and we are so blessed to know her. Berlin inspires Michael and I everyday to be the best we can be for her for eachother & for our families. Sometimes people say after one baby you will change your mind on the size of your family but for me Berlin just justified it.
Berlin Mae we love you more than words could ever express.
Happy 1st Birthday Sweetheart.
"I'll love you forever, I'll like you for always, as long as I'm living my baby you'll be."
Berlin Right now...
Loves Baby Doll's she hugs & kisses them rocks them and feeds them.
Can tell you how old she is...If asked she will show you with her finger.
Loves to ride horses she loves her rocking horse, Bucky grandma's mechanical horse and loves to pet her grandparents real horses.
Can walk up to 6 steps and she can stand up in the middle of the room by herself.
Can say momma, dadda, babba, HOT, dog.
Knows what baby, horsey, food, juice, purse, night night, snuggle, kisses hugs, blankee, silky...means.
Can tell you what a doggie, kitty, horsey and cow says.
Loves anything SILK!!! Freaky about it I will hear her moaning in the other room and she is rubbing a silk dress shirt all over her face while sucking her thumb:)
Can shake her booty like know one's business.
Loves the water the tub is truly her favorite thing to do.
Here are a couple of pictures of Berlin that Nema took yesterday I will post many more when I get them.

Also a cute little note it is also My sister in law Amy Felsen's birthday today and James Jr Erickson's too! So Happy Birthday to the first born's on this 10th day of September, we love you all!

As a 9 lbs 8 oz baby myself, Happy Birthday Berlin and way to give your Mom a run for her money! I just say the bigger the baby, the bigger the bond. I tell you this all the time, but I really mean it that she is one of the most beautiful children I have seen. Congrats on a great first year!

Happy birthday sweet Berlin!!! Oh Bran she is so gorgeous and I can't believe she is already a year old. Wow she has such a sweet little spirit I totally adore her! And those invitations to her party are SOO freaking cute I laughed out loud! I'm so sorry we can't make it to her party I would love to be there. Unfortunately we are starting in the busy season with jasons job and we have something going on literally every weekend for the next several weekends. But you tell that berlinny that she has something on the way from aunty mera! I love you girly and hope you had a fabulous birthday as well, next year lets have a huge double birthday bash!! I felt way too much like an adult on this years birthday.
