She’s one!!!

January 24, 2015


Little A had her first birthday on Wednesday.  I think this year has flown by like no other in my entire life.  It seems like yesterday we were welcoming this tiny baby girl into the world and now here she is,  an independent big girl who walks everywhere, babbles at us quite earnestly (we have no idea what she’s saying), and is such a sweet little soul.  Her new shirt says, “Happy all the time,” and that pretty much describes her disposition.


She has another shirt that says, “I am loved.” And that describes her as well.  She is so loved by everyone.  This little girl is such a ray of sunshine in our lives and her brothers and her parents and grandparents love her so dearly.

I do wish she’d hold still for the camera on occasion.  I tried all day to get a decent picture of her.  Some are still blurry, but they sure do capture her personality.







“Wow, look at all these presents for me!”


After Christmas and E’s birthday, she had a better idea of what to do with presents, but she still wasn’t terribly interested in unwrapping them all.  Her brothers were rather more excited and/or impatient, and helped out greatly.  Here she is exploring her new doll:


She had presents again at Grandma and Poppa’s house on Thursday.


The best part of first birthdays (at least around here) is the first chocolate cake!


She cautiously tried out the frosting first.


Pronounced it good, and went all in:



I don’t know if it’s because she’s our first girl, or just that we have two smart phones and a digital camera always on hand, but we’ve taken an obscene number of photos of this child. In fact, 2014 could probably be called the “Year of Little A.” I make a family photo calendar every year for Christmas, and we were hard pressed to find pictures without Little A in them for this year’s.  We probably could have made an entire calendar with just her.  It’s been so fun to look back though and see how she’s grown, so to end this post, here’s a look back:From 1 day old t0 1, 2, and 3 months:Anya's first year
