Well we had Alayna’s first birthday! I waited until we got back from the ZOO to write this post. That was her birthday present from us and it was such a blast! Her party was so fun to plan and I love how everything turned out! Thanks to my mom who helped me with the cupcakes! I will never pay for someone to make us cupcakes again… these were so easy and fresh!
We are so blessed to have so many people who love her and came to celebrate with her! She absolutely LOVED the cake.. Although nobody warned us that she wouldn’t sleep until ELEVEN o’clock!!
She absolutely LOVED the zoo. She pointed and yelled at some of the animals and made sure everyone around her was looking too! The next day, we decided to stop at the beach before heading home. I wasn’t sure how she would like it since it was a little cool. Turns out that didn’t matter to her. She would TAKE OFF towards the ocean. Seriously, we were chasing her! Then she cried every time we took her back to the blanket. She is such a water baby. Of course, Daddy had to bury her in the sand which was lovely to clean up! I forgot what a mess the beach can be but will definitely be going back this summer!
I am feeling so blessed to have this little girl in our lives. I cant even remember what life was like before she was born.
