My baby girl is one today. I could basically copy-and-paste what I wrote on Chloë's first birthday, only substituting Elaina's name.
But it's true. I'm amazed how much Elaina has grown and changed in one short year. She's a little firecracker of a person, and it's such a joy being her mama.
Here she is from months 0 to 11, and then today, on her first birthday.
Then later, she was reading some books. I thought her choice for today was quite appropriate.
Even birthday girls get tired of attention and kisses.
We're planning to have a little birthday party tomorrow with the Botkin and Blakeys, so I'll be sure to get a picture of Elaina smearing herself with cake.
