march 14th, 2013

To Avery,  last Thursday was just like any other day plus the gifts, cupcake and fancy outfit. But to everyone else it was a VERY important day as we celebrated the first birthday of our sweet Avery James {yes, her middle name is not James, it is Elizabeth but I call her that because she reminds me so much of her daddy and his middle name is James}. 

Her day was filled with celebrations wherever she went. At Nanna's they had a full day of partying that included cupcakes, singing, necklaces and princess dresses. We came home and opened gifts, grilled out, went on a walk {beautiful weather} and started assembling the house for Avery's birthday party.

As Greg and I laid in bed, we reflected on exactly what we were doing a year ago: laying in the hospital, exhausted from a day of labor, seeing our baby girl take her first surreal. Can't believe it's been a year. Who would've thought that on our honeymoon we'd get pregnant? Wow, didn't see that one coming. And yet, I feel like the luckiest girl on Earth. 

Avery has brought so much joy to our lives. She is the best surprise that God could've given us. 

Here are some pictures of her special day:

Avery's goofball face she made when we told her it was her birthday! LOL
