Last month was Hazel’s 1st birthday. On the day of her birthday the girls and I met Blake for lunch at a little sandwich shop in Anchorage. She had a PB&J to celebrate, her favorite. After lunch we headed home and spent the rest of the day playing, napping, eating mac & cheese, and watching endless episodes of The Lion Guard.
On Super Bowl Sunday (the reason we’re all dressed in Viking gear, Blake’s request) we had a small party for her. We did a Minnie Mouse theme for the birthday decorations and dessert table. The Oreo ear cupcakes were my favorite. My mom made the cake and I frosted it. So stressful, but it turned out great.
In typical Hazel fashion, she didn’t show much emotion when we sang to her. All she cared about was sticking her little fingers in the frosting. We did get some smiles out of her once she tasted the cake. Together the girls had a great time destroying it. We could not keep Lillian out of the pictures. You’ll notice her hand in almost every one.
This past year with Hazel has been the best one yet. It’s been a wild ride, but we wouldn’t change it for the world. She keeps us on our toes and fills our hearts with so much love. She’s the perfect little addition to our family.
Happy 1st birthday, Hazie Girl. Love you so much! ♥
