her first birthday party.

Yesterday we had Meredith's first birthday party. It was a lot of work, but worth every minute of stress and worry. We had such an amazing day surrounded by the people we love and the people who have supported us through this life changing year. Meredith thoroughly enjoyed being the center of attention and seemed to be destined to wear a crown. The weather was perfect. The food was delicious. The conversation was uplifting. I ended the day exhausted but so encouraged. Enjoy the (many!) pictures :)

Awwww what a beautifully colourful birthday! Happy 1st Birthday Meredith!!

Did you make her cake? I remember she had an egg allergy, did you find a special recipe? I'm trying to decide if I want to give Cameron a standard birthday cake or try to "baby modify" it!
