Party, party, party.

Happy First Birthday!

Dottie turned one yesterday.
We went to the pizza place in town to celebrate.

Dottie is a salty old man in a little girl’s body.
She plays in the liquor cabinet and laughs when people fall down.
Always with a hearty, hearty chuckle.

I’m so happy she joined us, she teaches us to be less sensitive.
She teaches us to bruise less.
Always with a hearty, hearty chuckle.

She loves her new shoes and her Elmo remote.
She clutches books with a deathgrip well into sleep.
Always with a hearty, hearty chuckle.
