Tuesday, January 29th.
I had to run quite a lot of errands today to pick up the last of your party supplies. 
We were out all day, so you ended up taking your nap in the car.


Wednesday, January 30th.
Papa read you your favorite book before bed. 
He's usually at work when you go down for the night, so this was a treat for you both.
These are the moments that I would rather be behind the camera than in front of it. 
I love watching you two together.


Thursday, January 31st.
Gramma Wendy and Aunt Hillary flew in today for your birthday. 
Here you are playing 'Rock a Bye Baby' with Cha Chi.


Friday, February 1st.
At this exact moment, one year ago, Papa and I met you for the first time.
You are the most magical, beautiful soul, Evangeline.
You are the brightest star in our skies.
Happy Birthday, little one.


Saturday, February 2nd.
We celebrated you today with good food and good friends.


Sunday, February 3rd.
After all the excitement yesterday, you were tired, so we stayed home to rest.
Later, Mama and Papa went out on a much needed date.


Monday, February 4th.
Gramma loves you.


  1. I am so glad you share this blog Andrea, every week so far, it and you, an Evangeline, and of course Alex too, have brought a smile to my face! It's so wonderful to see you kids happy, and living your lives so happily, like God intends us to be! Good for you, I say, pat yourselves on the back, I think your doing just fine! Love to you guys, from Montana...
