Happy 1st Birthday Evelyn!

My baby turned 1 yesterday. It was a happy but emotional day for me. I wasn't emotional about Eva getting big, I mean, I want her to grow and change and turn into her own person. I was emotional because she's getting big (all my kids are) and I feel bad because I don't take the time to stop and treasure all the special moments as much as I would like to. I made a point to slow down yesterday and just breath. I wanted to share some pictures of Eva's special day with you all. I'm sorry for the lack of really good photos. You know, the whole "slowing down and breathing" thing kind of made me forget the camera at times. =)

Here's the Princess herself opening presents. That's Nate behind her and also me with my head chopped off in the background. I think that's a good look for me. =)

Of course, Eva had a cupcake with one candle. Each of her siblings got to blow out their own candle as this was a very important day for them as well. Being older siblings is not always an easy job but they are great at it. I am so proud of my kids and the way they love each other.

A yummy cupcake! She wasn't quite sure what to do with it at first but she caught on real fast!
Happy Birthday, My beautiful, sweet Evelyn Ayalguu. "As long as I'm living, my baby you'll be."
