Celebrating ONE Special Year!

We celebrated Avery's 1st birthday October 30th. This year has been nothing short of amazing. At only 26 weeks 2 days gestation, avery was born weighing only 1 lb 8 oz, and today you would have no clue looking at her. She's a healthy, happy, 18 lb one year old!

She was such a good birthday girl after taking over a 3 hour nap before party time. We all sang Happy Birthday before blowing out the candle and letting her dig into her cake. My sister's mother in law made the adorable birthday cakes to go with our Look Whoo's Turning One theme.

Caroline didn't mind sampling the cake with Avery.

But Avery didn't need any help, she knew exactly what to do! That cake tasted just as good as it looked :)

Of course there were a lot of helpers to open presents with Avery.

Avery riding in her birthday present from us, she likes for Caroline to push her all around the house.

Precious one year old.

Yes, she is a precious one year old with an adorable big sister. We loved having our one-on-one time with her over Thanksgiving, but it was great to see Caroline come safely back from Wisconsin.
