Our Little Birthday Girl.

I really cannot believe that Maya is ONE!!! I'm so proud of her first year of life. We had a great party for her yesterday. Many of her little friends joined us at Coldstone Creamery for ice cream, cake, and playtime. I think a fun time was had by all! These photos are a little jumbled (timewise), but you'll get the idea. I'll let Maya narrate the party!

"Mommy took this picture before the party started. Christina and Ed and Charlie were there a couple of minutes early to play!"

"Mom, you know I don't wear hats. What are you thinking??"

"Fine, I'll wear this hat, but I'm only doing it for Daddy, okay?"

"Alex loves ice cream. He even got to make his own cup!"

"There were 2 cakes at my party. One was a big cookies and cream cake, and the other cake was just for me! It had pink icing and vanilla cake. Yum. I ate it all myself!"

"Nash made his own strawberry ice cream creation!"

"Mommy and I shared some raspberry sorbet. Mmmmm. This was before the cake."

"Here's Daddy, making his coffee ice cream with chocolate shavings and a giant mountain of Reeces PB Cups. He loved it."

"Mindy, Rich, and Corey were there too, but Corey is too little for ice cream. Poor guy."

"Daddy, what is this thing you're blowing at me? It's ridiculous!"

"This is my big cookies and cream cake. Everyone was already so full from making ice cream, we still have almost the whole thing in the freezer!"

"I'll start by sticking my fingers in it. That's how I usually eat."

"When they put the cake in front of me, I started eating it with my fingers, just like a lady. Soon, I decided to just dive in with my mouth. Yum. Frosting is delicious. For real."

"This is so good. Jealous?"

"Nash, that looks like food coma. Am I right?"


"See? I'm one, so I can feed myself."

"Mommy, how do I look?"

"Kiss me, I taste delicious!"

"Okay, I think I'm done here."

"Oh no! My poor cake!"

"Nash gave me a birthday hug on the way out. We're so cute, don't you think?"

"Here it is from another angle, in case you were interested."

"We opened presents when we got home. My friends are so nice. I'm sad to be moving. Maybe I'll drive back to visit, in the car that Alex, Josh, and Risa gave me! Can I, Mommy? Please?!"

Happy Birthday Maya! I'm so jealous that you get to mix your own ice cream at your Coldstone Creamery! What a fun place to spend a first birthday.
