Today she is ONE!
I have tried several times to write a post that expresses my thoughts around this time. How Eslea has helped this family to go through the most amazing changes in only a year.
But each time the words start to flow, so do the tears.
Today is not a day for tears.
Today is a day for joy....at least for most of us that is.
So later. Later I will write my feelings about this day.
For now, I will just say...
Happy First Birthday Buggie!!
Today started as any other with you making everyone else's day brighter from the very start.
Today was the second celebration for you this week so we decided to keep it small.
Just the four of us because today is offically your birthday!
There will be time for the balloons, presents and a larger gathering later.
|Jason making sure to remove all of the hard candy before Eslea gets her hands on it.|
Hopefully we'll have better luck with your birthday cake in a few days.
Today was nice. Just us.
It was fun...
at least until the party hats came out.
Sister to the rescue.
Happy Birthday Eslea!
Your big celebration is in just a few days!
I promise, no party hats at that one (maybe).
