Here is my beautiful baby the day after we brought her home from the hospital:
Aven's first year seemed to go extremely slow for me. Probably because as a new mom everything was a struggle and everything seemed so new and scary. Etta's first year has flown past and I can't believe that she's already on the verge of walking. She's so delightful, strong-willed, and happy- I just love her so much.
Over the weekend we had Ian's parents over for cake and ice-cream to celebrate Etta's, Ian's and my birthday since they're all so close together.
|Etta REALLY wanted to grab that flame.|
|She was just as dainty at eating her cake as Aven was on her first birthday.|
On Pioneer Day we had a barbecue at my mom's house and celebrated all three birthdays again. This time I remembered the 1st birthday hat and bib that my friend Amber gave me:
|Surprisingly, she kept that hat on all the way through eating her cake.|
|The reason the entire cake is on fire is because I turned 34 this year.|
|Not as dainty this time. She's getting the hang of this whole cake-eating thing.|
|Opening presents! Confession time: I re-gifted her Aven's Little People house and accessories that I packed away about a year and a half ago. She has no idea and loves it anyway.|
Happy birthday to my sweet girl!
