One year ago today, you made mommy and daddy's dream come true.
Now you stand before us, a little person, so vibrant and full of spunk and personality. It's been quite an amazing year being your mommy and daddy, my sweet baby.
For your first birthday, we had a small, intimate party of close friends and family. It was a hot day (over 100 degrees!), but we made due by staying cool inside and enjoying the taco bar that mommy and daddy made for your guests. It was a packed house, but everyone made themselves at home. We also set up a swimming pool in the back for all the kids to splash and swim in. So much was going on, and it was all for you.
The most precious moment for me during your party was when we sat you in your high chair and gathered around to sing "Happy Birthday" to you. The singing brought the biggest smile to your face, and you began clapping in joyous approval. I almost cried...
After singing, we gave you your first birthday cupcake. You weren't quite sure what to do with it. But once you did, you didn't want to let it go! In fact, you didn't let the cup cake leave your mouth for the longest time. It was hilarious.
The day went by so quickly. At the end of the day, your daddy and I couldn't stop saying, "I can't believe we have a one year old!" You've been a joy to have in our lives so far, Miss Isadora Yume. I can't wait to celebrate many more birthdays with you.
All of our love,
Mommy and Daddy
