It's just crazy to think that Mya turned one year old last week!!! How is this even happening?!?! Before she was born, I've always wondered what it was like to have a niece. Now that she's born, I wonder if I'll have any love left for my own kids!

I used to think life was great, but Mya made me realize that life can definitely be BETTER! She gives me something to look forward to every week, made me appreciate the small things, taught me that there's more to life than just work, and encouraged me to embrace my inner weirdness. I still don't know why she finds my dancing so entertaining to watch???

We planned a party for her and her little friends at an indoor playground yesterday. I was low key just as excited as the kids, and wanted to go in the jumpy castle and do the zip lining too!

It was no surprise that Mya loved going on the swing and seeing bubbles, because we did those activities a lot this summer!

Like father, like daughter...

Oh Mymy, you have no idea how much joy you bring everyone. I love how you're always willing to share, like giving the toy you're playing with away or stuffing a piece of cracker in my mouth. I love watching you discover new things, like rocking horses, jack-o-lanterns, and staircases. I love how you start wiggling or clapping whenever a song comes on. I love how excited you get over inanimate objects, like curtains, blow dryers or tissue boxes. I love how you try to be independent by feeding yourself, but always end up getting it in your nose and shirt. I love how you perk up excitedly whenever I come over. Lastly, I LOVE BEING YOUR AUNT.

Thank you for being so kind and loving to me. Happy 1st birthday, Mya! We love you so much!!!
