Oaklyn Eve's 1st Birthday Party
My girl is ONE YEAR OLD! Maybe it's because her birth is still engraved vividly in my memory, or maybe it's because we have not one - but TWO - kids now, or maybe it's because we decided to throw a puppy in the mix . . . but a year seems as though it has gone by in a snap and I can hardly comprehend how it's possible for time to move so quickly. I am beyond grateful for all the memories and moments we have had with Oaks so far, it's been a blast watching our baby girl grow and develop and form her own personality all her own. I love every piece of Oaks, from her goofy grin to her Carlin frown (for real looks like my dad when she's frownin')! Her jealousy for mama melts my heart, her endless stomach and chunky legs bring immense joy to my life, and her relentless determination yet tender soul makes me very proud to be her mama!
We celebrated Oaks's birthday this weekend with a small party with family and friends. Oaks played lots with her buddies/cousin, ate like 3 whole slices of pizza (what?!), and put away a whole cupcake!
Ace spent the day helping Oaks with all the birthday shenanigans like a good, dedicated big brother would. . . he also may or may not have been trying to convince us that it was HIS birthday too (; Such a goof. Probably didn't help that we wrapped a little gift for him as well. HA!
It was wonderful to get to celebrate Oaks by showering her with lots of love; because, to me, Oaks has been such a special gift to me since the day I found out we were expecting her.
