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:
Strawberry cake with vanilla frosting!
The dress didn’t last more than 5 minutes!
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!
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!
