We can’t believe the first year is down. I remember your actual “birth” day like it was yesterday and I always think back to what an absolutely perfect day it was. How our entire lives changed at 10:32am in the most amazing way. How I was positive you were going to be a boy until your Dad exclaimed “Uh… that looks like a girl!”. How I just kept staring at you thinking “I really get to take her home?”. It has been the most amazing year and Dad and I count our lucky stars every day because we get to call you ours.
E’s first birthday fell on a Saturday this year so we decided to hold a small brunch to celebrate. We tried to keep the shindig small since we were hosting it at our home and also because… you know… because she won’t remember this. I wasn’t sure how she would handle all of the attention, but baby girl totally embraced it. She even started dancing when we sang “Happy Birthday”. She wasn’t all too excited by the cake (just like her Daddy), and after only a few bites, she signed that she was “all done”.
Big thank you to R and Aunt A for snapping some great photos of the day!
