Happy 1st Birthday Leila!

It's hard to believe that one year ago today, little Leila Anne was born. The year has passed so quickly! My C section scar is faded to a thin little line and our little girl is almost walking. Leila has been such a blessing in our family this past year. The boys all adore her and are so incredibly sweet with her. She also loves her brothers very much and enjoys all the attention and love they give her. Billy has a special bond with her as well, Leila just loves her Daddy! She really has brought so much joy to our entire family.
Yesterday we had a little party to celebrate her first year of life and it was a perfect evening to enjoy friends & family company outside. I think we had 53 people, Adults, kids & babies :) It didn't feel like that many people... the kids were all so happy and occupied with all the places to play and be outside. Billy was on the BBQ and I made up some salads and veggie platter. The cupcakes were decorated by a few excited kids and Leila enjoyed her very first cupcake complete with sprinkled frosting. I was running around and of course did not even pick up my camera once, but my friend Julie was snapping pictures all evening. Eventually I will get some pictures of the party :) But for now, I took a few pictures today, on Leila's actual birthday, 1st day of spring! Here are some of my favorites-


  1. 53 people! You are such a gracious party person. Your kids will love you for that! Happy birthday little Leila

  2. Oh my goodness! I can't believe it has been a year! Happy Birthday Leila! She is a cutie and your pictures turned out awesome.

  3. What a beautiful girl she is... it will be fun to see her grow up with all those great brothers.
