We had a lot of fun at Lucy’s first birthday.
Lucy with “aunt” Jenny
The decorations were really simple. Just crepe paper streamers, balloons, and some flowers. The convenient thing about having a birthday right before Christmas is that the house is already feeling pretty festive.
She was a little unsure about her carrot cake, but got the hang of it eventually.
I still marvel that she’s actually here. There was a time when Pk and I weren’t sure we would ever have a baby and now, the very tangibility of her presence, her tiny personality, have made for a more joyful reality than I could have ever imagined. Happy Birthday, indeed.
Zomg, I need a tissue.
