Hard to believe that Maria Constance is already ONE! I neglected to do a post on her actual birthday partially because we were busy prepping for her first birthday party and enjoying the stunning fall foliage in this lovely place we call home. Well…I suppose I’ve put it off long enough — much to the dismay of Mia’s many long-distance followers! (my apologies to you) — so here is a slightly belated birthday post.
Aaron and I are delighted with the wonders of spending one whole year with this amazing person. We had a quaint shindig for her at home.
I made carrot cake with cream cheese/butter frosting (the most nutritious vehicle I could think of for massive sugar delivery), and a special little cupcake portion just for the birthday girl. We took a billion pictures and I’ve included our favorites here…
Thanks to all of you for helping prepare us to be parents (continually!), for welcoming Mia into your lives, and for being a part of our lives. We wouldn’t be the same without you!
