Happy First Birthday Pearl

I don't usually like to post many pictures of my kids online but today was such a monumental occassion that I had to document it and share it with all of you!  Today we celebrated Pearl's first birthday.  We had it at a local zoo with 17 kids and 10 adults.  I couldn't have asked for a more perfect day.  It was a happy occasion as well as a sad one.  I'm happy to see her grow and become more independent but I also realize that I'll never celebrate a "first birthday" with my kids ever again.  These precious moments just fly by too fast!

This week's High!!!!!  Pearl's first birthday party!
Pearl is and always will be our baby girl!  She is quiet, shy and Mommy's suck! 
Things I love about her:

Her fake laugh and real laugh

The way she stretchs like a starfish first thing every morning

The way she lays her head on my shoulder for a little cuddle from time to time

Her awkward one leg up and one leg done crawl

Her sparkly blue eyes and breathtaking eyelashes

Her blood curdling scream when she's hungry

Her "jack o lantern" smile  (a tooth here and a tooth there)

The loose wave in her hair

Her button nose

Her one hand "open and close" wave to say hi and bye

Today we celebrated her first birthday!  I cried!  I love my baby girl so much and I couldn't ask for any other blessing in the entire world than to be her mommy! 
Happy Birthday Baby Girl!
Love Mommy
