This picture shows what was the beginning of the most life changing day of my life. The day Avyn entered our lives.

Spring forward to now. I have a ONE year old. I don’t even know how it happened. They are not lying when they say those first 3-4 months fly by and how much fun it is to watch them learn & grow. Then the next 8 months were here and then all of a sudden I wake up and my chubby baby is crawling around thinning out, waving at us and dancing her cute little booty to Drake.

At one year old she is 23 lbs. 30 inches and the cutest little munchkin I could have ever hoped for.

She loves to wave at everyone. Claps her hands ALL the time to say yay me or yay in general 🙂 if I say “show them you’re a lizard” she sticks her tongue out and its the cutest!

She dances with or without music. A Happy little one but has the best scowl when she wants to.

Here she is the morning of her first birthday 🙂

So since we go to Lake Powell every year and it will fall on Avyn’s birthday I wanted to make this year’s birthday the real deal.

I chose the coral gold and yellow “you are my sunshine” decor. Since she is born in July and is a little sunshine in our lives it only made sense 😉

She was hilarious with her cake. She only poked it and licked her finger. Then I finally broke the cake apart and handed her a piece and she shoved it in her mouth. Then she must have been full (because she is a foodie) and she started feeding Ty & me. It was cute 🙂 I don’t think she much likes being crowded and watched. After all the fun, present opening and then cake eating — we put her in the bath and she was on a crazy sugar high. It was amazing 🙂 cracking us up. It was a wonderful day and I really enjoyed seeing how loved my little Av is. We are really blessed with incredible family & friends.

Can’t wait to see what this next year with my little boo holds ♥
