Spaghetti is all the Rave in our house.

We know the first picture is totally not becoming of her, but it is worth a couple laughs & by the time Nica is a teenager--she'll never know we posted these online.

Playing with train & balls

Enjoying our sunny day

The day after Nica's birthday party we were blessed with sunshine. We went with Grandma, Grandpa, Auntie Amber, Bob, & Kali the dog down to Boulevard Park and walked to Fairhaven. It felt like a summer day in Bellingham (except much colder).

Nica's First Birthday Party

Nica celebrated with family & friends on her first birthday party. She enjoyed her naturally sweetened carrot cupcake with yummy cream cheese frosting (she moaned for seconds). She received tons of books from her family & friends, and ate yummy lunch, then played for a couple hours after everyone left.

In fact, she was still in a good mood at 2:30 w/0 a nap, but I thought it would be safe to put her down before meltdown time. We had a great day!

Birthday Girl!

Nica turned one year today, here are some pictures of her on her first day of life out of the womb. Ben and I have been nostalgic the past two days about what we were doing the day before she was born all the way to the present (along with how much she's grown). The first picture is of mommy enjoying her baby. The second picture is of the sweet girl. The third is of daddy & his sweet pea. The fourth is of Nica's unhappy face, which is still the same look on her face when she's unhappy to this day--so funny.
