Happy birthday to Ava

Just a quick post to say I’m now the proud mother of a 1 year old girl!! Ava had a great birthday and a spectacular birthday party. I am soooooooo happy at how it all turned out. Sure, I was a raving lunatic the few days before the party, but everything came together perfectly and the party went off without a hitch. I think everyone had a great time! Hooray!! :)

Ava’s been walking a lot lately and has taken to the stairs as well. Oh my! I definitely have a toddler on my hands now. ;)

I haven’t uploaded party pics yet, but here are a couple from her actual birthday.

She enjoyed playing in the cake (but not eating it):
