I am starting to notice that it seems everyone is always saying: "I can't believe it has already been a year." Maybe we should start recognizing a year for what it is--not some long measure of time, but really a very short one. Still, I'm going to say it...I can't believe it has already been a year! My little niece turned one on Thursday, and Ashley planned a totally fun party for everyone last night to celebrate.

Ava is walking, and she does it with such ease that it seems like she has been doing it since birth. She was so cute walking around in her Birthday Girl hat that her Auntie Michelle bought for her. After we devoured the delicious food it was time for gifts. Ava was hilarious as she walked from present to present pulling out tissue paper, and then moving on. She wanted to see each surprise as her mom and dad helped her find her presents. I tried taking pictures, but it was very hard to keep up with her since by the time I had focused, she was on the move to her next conquest.

When we sang Happy Birthday and Ashley helped Ava blow out the candle, she suddenly grabbed the cupcake! We were lucky that she didn't touch the flame. Overall it was a totally fun party and we had a wonderful time celebrating our little bean.
