Happy Birthday to Paige!

I'm still not quite sure where this last year went but it has sure been a joyous one! Paige celebrated her 1st birthday two weeks ago and each day keeps getting better and better. We spent the weekend in Sacramento because Kevin's brother was getting married so we had the special treat of having all of Kevin's side of the family celebrate Paige's special day with us. The wedding was on her birthday so we did a little party for her the day before. Everyone eagerly anticipated the classic cake eating but of course Paige always does things on her own time and in her own way. She didn't want anything to do with the cake unless Kevin or I fed it to her. :) As a result, Dad and Mom ended up messier than Paige as you can see below. Here are a few pictures of us with Paige at the temple on her birthday.

The next Monday my mom had a layover in San Jose on her way to see her mom so Paige and I met up with her for a quick lunch.
Paige continually amazes us. She soaks things up like a sponge and each day is full of surprises with all she has learned. And although we never seem to be able to capture it on film, she is such a happy little girl. We love to hear her laugh and she can put a smile on our faces like no one else can. I'm so grateful every day for our little miracle and look forward to all of our wonderful adventures in the year to come.
