Avonlea's First Birthday Photo Shoot

Fall is birthday season in our house.  Since our immediate family all have birthdays between July and November, we find ourselves celebrating for five months straight! :)  These birthday pictures are from Avonlea's first birthday photo shoot back in August (HOW is it already October?!!).  

Thank you to Khimberly at Snaptastic Shots for these gorgeous pictures of our sweet babe! :)  Khimberly is an absolutely magical photographer!!  I love all of the details and unique facial expressions Khimberly was able to capture of Avonlea.  If anyone was ever able to make time stand still, Khimberly finds a way to do it with her photography.

Avonlea had 5 teeth by her first birthday.  She gained her 4 molars shortly after.

Avonlea's newest trick at the time.

Our sweet little baby doll.  Avonlea has literally had random strangers (on a plane, in a restaurant, in a museum, etc.) ask to take pictures of her (just her) on their cellphones because she looks so much like a live baby doll.  The first time, it was funny.  The second time, it was creepy.  But, by the fourth time, I just accepted it.  She's a sweetheart who considers everyone her friend.  :)

We love her chunkiness.

This is what Avonlea does when you ask her to "wink." She squeezes her eyes shut really tight.

Trying the icing...not really sure...

Avonlea gets her curly hair from me but her long eyelashes from her Daddy.

When you ask Avonlea, "do you want to eat?"  She replies, "hmmmmm!"

Why limit your cake being a finger food?  Get your whole foot in it!

Over the last year, we have come to know Avonlea as a very happy, social, loving, easy-going, peaceful yet strong-willed, independent, fearless child.

Avonlea has a special place in her heart for her brothers (Oliver is a caregiver to her.  Bennett is a playmate).  She absolutely delights in her Daddy.  But she's a Mama's girl.  We are incredibly thankful for her.
