Oh, what fun it was to celebrate Leah being one!
Her actual birthday was pretty low key. We started off with the traditional birthday pancakes.
And finished it with an easy dinner at Chick-fil-a. The grilled chicken there might be Leah's most favorite food.
A few days later all of the family gathered to celebrate our girl.
There were a lot of different thoughts swirling around in my mind: it's our last first birthday party, along with this has been a challenging year and so worth celebrating that we made it to ONE, and this girl is just sweet, so of course celebrating her and the wonderful addition she's been to our family feels special.
We started off with Leah's cake.
Before the candle was even lit her legs were kicking with excitement. And once the singing began Leah could hardly contain herself.
While I cleaned her up, everyone else ate dinner, and then it was on to opening presents.
Leah likes to be busy and have people around so opening gifts and checking out so many new things seemed to be really fun for her.
