5 Years Old!

Naya's first birthday with her family went amazingly.  She had so much fun... she'd been anticipating it for a while now so I'm thankful that it seemed to live up to her expectations!  She knew her friends would be coming to sing to her and play (and bring her presents!).  It was pretty amazing to see the joy all over her face as almost 40 people sang Happy Birthday to her.  I don't think we'll be having this big of a bash every year, for my sanity's sake, but for her first celebrated birthday I wanted her to see the huge love that surrounds her, and make it memorable.

A year ago today I ate some cake for Naya's fourth birthday, and knew that it would be her last one alone.  (  It's pretty amazing to see how life has changed in the last year for both of us.

Thanks to all of you who helped make this day special for her.
