It’s Party Time!


Sam and Lilia with birthday cupcakesLilia is one year old tomorrow, boy how time flies.  I was looking back today at all the photos from almost a year ago when she was a feeble little infant weighing less than 10 pounds, amazing that she’s now an extremely mobile little lady who understands so much of what we say to her!  To celebrate her first birthday we invited a few family friends and some of Lilia’s local playmates to the Mill Valley Community Center pool yesterday to Big bluespartake in Lilia’s favorite pastime: swimming.  Charlotte and Liliana – her two hiking buddies – and their moms Whitney and Susan all joined Lilia in the pool for a bit of a paddle, all enjoying a splash for about half an hour with Gail, Randy and her two maternal grandparents watching from the side.

Lynn and John Westoby joined us all at Small Shed Flatbreads in Mill Valley for a pizza lunch, I’m not sure if Lilia realized she was the center of everyone’s attention but she sure enjoyed tearing up all the wrapping paper on the gifts that everyone so generously gave her.  So nice for her family and close friends to be able to share her first birthday with her, great company and very memorable for Mum and me!

    It was fun to see all those kids enjoying the water. Pizza was great too.. So happy we could share the celebration.

    What a cutie!! Am wondering if Lilia still looks like her grandmother Jenni at the same age – was certainly a resemblance when looking at Jenni’s old photos last year!

    You all certainly seem to have had a great party.
