More of the Birthday Party...

Mara's birthday party was Sunday, April 26th. It wasn't a big party, but she had a blast! She loved being the center of attention. Lately she's been kind of shy around people, but she grinned as soon as she saw the group gathered at our house to help her celebrate!

Jay made an awesome DVD of Mara's first year (photos and videos), so we watched that - it's crazy to see how much she has grown and changed, and how quickly! She is such a little PERSON now!

She was interested on and off with opening presents. She had a lot, so it took awhile! She got so many nice things - toys, books, clothing...what a spoiled little girl! She is loving all her new toys! I'm excited for her to wear some of her new summer clothing too!

She wasn't interested in the cake at all, but we weren't surprised. She got it all over herself and wasn't happy about that. We didn't make her suffer too long, and got her cleaned up. Maybe next year she'll actually want to eat it!

Overall, it was a great day! Mara was such a good girl, even when she was a little sleepy. She seemed to really enjoy herself, and knew that everyone was there for HER...so she took full advantage of everyone's attention!

I can't believe my baby turns ONE tomorrow! It really does seem like she was just born. The year has flown by, and I'm sure the next year will fly by too!
