My baby turned 1 on May 20th. I am belated in posting, but thoroughly enjoyed the celebrations (Thank you, Michelle!).
This was a very significant moment for me. My little baby is now heading fast into toddlerhood. I remember remarking how fast T changed as a newborn. With Aila, it felt faster since I had more stuff going on, but I was also more aware to appreciate every second. I still feel washes of gratefulness that I was able to have Aila. Lucky mama I am.
I want to mark this moment to express how much I love this little gal. How much I marvel at how different she is from T, and how funny and oh-so-cute she is. Her daily babbles, her wobbly walk, her attachment to me, the jokes she plays out to us, her knack in knowing which buttons on devices are most important. Dav and I laugh everyday just watching her and Tesla.
It sounds corny, I know, but I totally feel that we had this space for Aila in our family, and with her here, the table is set.
I love my Aila. Congratulations on blooming so wonderfully 12 months outside of the womb!
Like her sister, she is a blankie gal. And that beautiful birthday dress? From Gran Marie! Thank you!!
Love this side look on her. That yellow flower in her hair is from Michelle.
That's our gal!
With her Great Grandmother, Maria.
Surrounded by her older sisters : ) And balloons.
