My sweet Crawford girl, 

This month your personality really started to shine and we are all just so in love with you.  You smile constantly and you have this tiny dimple under your left eye that I see everytime you smile big.  You smile with your whole face and it makes my heart so happy!  You don't talk a whole lot but when you do you're almost always talking to your daddy.  I think he's the clear favorite in our house and that's fine by me.  You especially love chatting with us at night right before you go to bed.  We love that you're our happy girl!  We'll go to the doctor today and I'm excited to see how big you are.  You still seem so tiny to me and I think you'll be petite like your mama.  You wear 0-3 month and 3 month clothes and dressing you is one of my favorite hobbies of all time.  Last week we even tried on a swimsuit for fun! This month you celebrated your first Easter and we had such a fun weekend with family and friends!  I can't wait to see you and your brother running after Easter eggs next year!  You're a great eater and this week you've had a little taste of oatmeal.  You've been practicing sitting in your high chair when Campbell eats and you've been such a big girl sitting up!  We will definitely be trying baby food in the next couple of weeks.  You love to watch your brother eat!  You're still a great sleeper for us, but you've been getting up a few times a night for a paci the last two weeks.  As soon as I give you a paci you're right back to sleep and I'm so grateful for that!  Getting you up in the morning in one of my favorite things.  As soon as you see us come in your room you grin SO big and start talking.  It's one of my favorite times of day!  You're still our snuggle girl and you always need to be holding something.  You're starting to love some of your books and it's so fun to see you explore new things.  Crawford, you're such a sweet, easy going baby and it's my greatest joy to be your mama.  I love watching you grow.  You're my favorite girl. 

Love you big, 

Mama
