My baby is 1. How? I mean, I know how. We've had 12 crazy, fun, beautiful months since this little girl entered this world and changed our family forever.
We celebrated this sweet little girls' birthday this week. I could go on and on about this last year and tell countless stories about her rambunctious, sweet, hilarious, dramatic personality. But I'm just going to share a photo dump of the big day. I think most of them will speak for themselves. We've got more celebrations ahead with both sides of our family, so really, it's just the beginning. But our little mini-family birthday party on her special day was just what my soul needed. Happy Birthday Makena - you are so loved.
I didn't realize I'd get so emotional when I was getting her birthday things ready the day before. I wasn't sad, just emotional. I've been a mama for a year! It's been so hard but so wonderful. It was so fun looking back how she's grown month by month.
LIttle M was born at 8:44 am. I'm so glad it was at a reasonable hour so I could hug and kiss her and take this picture exactly a year later.
These chalkboard pictures used to be much easier. (See them all on my Instagram page!)
Smashcake. Gluten Free. Dairy Free. Not sugar free.
I may have eaten the smashed up drooled on leftovers.
For the parents. Because really...the first birthday is mostly about celebrating that you've survived your first year of parenthood!
Pure Joy. And a new tooth. And a sugared up puppy.
Thanks for spending this past year on the Home Field with us!
