Birthday Eve

Happy Birthday Eve to this almost one-year old!
 
 
I love the idea of celebrating as much as possible, so without a doubt, a big event like Waverly's birthday will be no different.  In between getting settled into our new house, this week has been full of preparing for Waverly's party & enjoying some sweet moments with our toddler-to-be. 
 
It's pretty fitting that Waverly's actual birthday has been extended past one day, since her birth was much in the same.  Throughout the entire month of July, I was convinced she would make her debut at any moment.  I was wrong, and made it to the full 40 weeks of pregnancy.
 
 
My doctor decided to go ahead with an induction scheduled for July 24th.   I was convinced that our daughter would arrive on this day, but she clearly had different plans.  In total, it was 48 hours after we checked into the hospital that we finally met Waverly Maye.
 
 
Clearly, she was more than worth it.  And furthermore, it was a total indication of her determined personality to come.
More on her birth story here.
 
Tomorrow, for her actual birthday, it will be a mommy & mini day and dinner with family.  And Saturday will be all about partying with our sweet sunshine.  I am super excited to celebrate my sweet girl and our first year as parents.  It has been - without a doubt - the best year of our lives & we can't wait for all that is to come.  With her, every day gets better & better.
 Happy Birthday Eve, Waverly Maye.
 
And happy almost weekend, friends.
XOXO
