Happy 1st Birthday Maya!

July 19, 2010

Written July 18th.

She’s ONE!  Can you believe it?  I know I can’t.  We started counting in days, then months and now…years?!  While I always felt like the months dragged by, always waiting for the next exciting milestone, I cannot believe how quickly a YEAR went!  Maya has done so much over this last year it’s incredible.  Watching her learn & grow has been so exciting, and sharing everything we love with her has been just as fun.

This week we shared Plum Island with her and celebrated her 1 year while we were there.  We had mostly family get together (given the size of our families), we had sun, beach, food, cake…what more could a girl ask for?!  There are lots of great photos from this day – but here are a few highlights:

Maya's favorite food is watermelon!

 Strawberry cake with vanilla frosting!

The dress

 The dress didn’t last more than 5 minutes!

The suit

 The hat lasted about 2 seconds – just long enough for the photo…the suit lasted longer!


 Dad’s guitar gift was a huge hit!


Maya wasn’t so into the cake – eating it I mean…but playing in it was fun!

Family Photo

Finally a family photo from the actual birthday day.  She’s changed so much from the last year’s family photo…she just gets better & better!  Happy 1st Birthday Maya!  I hope it was a good one!



  1. Happy b-day Maya! She is stinking cute! I see both you and Andrew in her….

  2. Thanks Becky! She’s definitely a blend of both of us – my nose…Andrew’s lips 🙂
