Arwen's First Birthday Party!

The day after your real birthday, we celebrated with family. It was a great, warm day full of love and laughter. Especially when you found you could crawl on top of the gifts...
You were sick with an ear infection (you went to the doctors on your actual birthday), so you weren't your really happy self, but enjoyed walking around. Of course, you were also late to the party since you napped until an hour after it started! 

Happy First Birthday, Arwen!! We love you and will take any day we can to celebrate you. We hope this next year will be full of great fun and surprises and that you continue to grow strong and healthy.

Arwen Mae - 12 Months

My beautiful baby girl, you have been outside of my body for one whole year and as everyone says, the year has flown by but at the same time, I can't believe you haven't been in our lives for years. 

You had watermelon for the first time and loved it. You started refusing to be fed, so now you are just eating what we eat and it is pretty convenient. Your favorite food is cheese hands down. If anything has cheese on it, you will gobble it right up. 

Your hair is growing so fast and can actually be put into pigtails now!! 

My first official mother's day and you were just so fun to hang out with. I absolutely love watching you grow and learn and come back to snuggle me. :)

The past three months
A whole year of Arwen

I can't put into words just how grateful and blessed we are to have you as our first child. You are the perfect meld of your daddy and I and we love you so so very much. You make me laugh on a daily basis and certainly test your limits whenever you can. We love you sweet girl. Continue being silly and playful and independent. <3
