Julia is 1!


I can't believe it has been a year since I birthed my sweet little Julianna Ruth. She has been such a joy to our lives. I remember thinking...how can I possibly love any child as much as I love Faith? Well, it is possible and amazing to see how deep love can just multiply. I love my two little girls with all my heart and am so thankful for both of them.

We had a party for Julia when my parents were in town. Uncle Aaron was and my parents were there, and Granddaddy and Nonna checked in on Skype. We had a delightful dinner and I was happy to see that she dug in to the super duper healthy cake I made for her, topped with kiwi and strawberries (some of her favorite foods).

Here is some video footage of the happy 1 year old at her party. Disclaimer: My singing is meant for sillyness and Julia is perfectly fine after the "incident."

For Julia's actual birthday (1 day later), after work, Jason and I took the girls on a bike ride on the Boise Greenbelt. They loved it. I think they liked being able to go fast!


To finish up the evening of Julia's birthday, we all went to the Old Spaghetti Factory for dinner. It was a fun few days and I hope to remember it all! We love you Julia!
