Our ONEderful Girl



Well, we made it! Audrey is still alive and well, survived her first year with us as parents. Yay us!! What an exciting day. We started off by serenading her with "Happy Birthday" when she woke up. Then she ate a special birthday pancake for breakfast:



The rest of the day was pretty normal: play, eat, nap, repeat.



We had family over for a special birthday celebration and it was so much fun! Dad made a spaghetti dinner (which she LOVED!) and we got to sing her Happy Birthday (again...and she was thrilled!) and of course we had cake and opened cards and gifts.


"SOOOOOO Big!"


Serious about spaghetti.




She ruled that cake!!




I think we have a favorite! Thanks, Aunt Sarah!!


She LOVED being sung to!


Writing her letter to Santa before bed.

She had a very special and wonderful first birthday. Thank you to all our friends and family who took the time to send cards and buy gifts (she was spoiled again on Christmas Day with tons of b-day gifts!)

I cannot believe how fast this year has gone by. She has grown and changed so much. I've experienced many different emotions since the day she was born, but the one that sticks out the most for me is pride. I'm so proud of our sweet Audrey Cate and the beautiful, fun little person she's developing into. I'm proud that Christopher and I are truly a team in raising our daughter. We've accomplished a lot together over the years, but Audrey, by far, is the best thing we've ever done. We love you, Sunshine!

Where did you get Audrey's Birthday balloons?! They are adorable! I'm having a really hard time finding any for some reason. Thanks! :)
