One year old

 Our little girl turned one. That is so crazy to me, to think a whole year has gone by.  Yet at the same time, it is just as crazy to think that she has only been with us for one year.  Life has never been so good as it is with little Jenna! We love her so much.

She loves: playing on the playground, cuddling in bed in the morning, mangoes and raspberries, swimming in the ocean, sticking her fingers in our mouth, going up and down stairs, playing in the bath tub, being outside, her pacifier, bread, looking in the mirror, being chased, reading books, dogs and birds, eating sand, visiting Dad at work, and helping Mom cook. 

Nana and Papa came to visit for her birthday. We started out early with raspberries for breakfast (her favorite) and presents. She got stacking toys and clothes from Nana and Papa, skirts and a dancing CD from Grandma and Grandpa, a stuffed whale and dolphin from Aunt Ashley, the cutest dress ever from Aunt Brooke, and hand puppets from Mom and Dad. 

Then we spent the afternoon doing what Jenna loves most - swimming in the ocean. It rained almost all day, but as long as we were in the water we weren't too cold.    

We had Impossible's Pizza for dinner and Jenna went to town on the crusts. If Sam even tried to touch her crust she would freak. 

We ended the night with birthday cake. Jenna was so cute when we sang to her. She looked around from person to person, and when she realized we were all singing to her she got the biggest grin on the face. I was certain she would love eating cake for the first time, but even when Sam tried putting it right in her mouth she wanted nothing to do with it. She just played in the frosting for a bit and then she was done.

What a wonderful year it has been! We love you, Jenna.
