There was a time this summer when we really didn't know if she would be home for her first birthday.  So it made it even more special for us to have her home for over two months, to be so much more adjusted now, and to be able to celebrate her birthday up right.  If the party had been the month we came home, it would have had a completely different feel.  

This really just felt like a party for our daughter.  But we did want to celebrate her entire first year, so we tried to make it as much of a celebration of her whole crazy first year of life as we could.  
I made a banner of pictures in chronological order.  From the newborn picture we took on the wall of Abenezer, to her referral picture, our court trip, embassy trip, coming home and everything in between.

We also sat around stacks of pictures of her early days, our two trips, and everything since we've been home.  

But mostly, it was just a really fun party for the girl we all love.  It was a really good day.

It was a perfect day. Willow your Mom looked at hundreds of decorating ideas to get the cutest for you. Your Mom and Dad worked for hours decorating the room with your brothers help. You are the sweetest, beautiful and happiest baby girl ever! And I don't believe it when Mom and Dad say you wake up and cry at night sometimes. :)
