This is one of my favorite photos* from the day of her birth. Ginny was sleepy... and obviously not so sure about early morning developments! Junah also looks sleepy, but he is the dreamiest lovingest cuddliest kiddo in the early morning and he looks slightly more accepting and intrigued!

It's been a fantastic year!!

She's the happiest baby and has quite the personality these days, and it won't be long before she's walking!! Watch out world!

Happy 1st Birthday, Malina!! xoxo

Welcome Home. I did see some of your photos on IG - looks like you had a fabulous time!

The pictures above are all so beautiful - Malina in that last picture is really looking impish (she must be learning well from her siblings - lol).

Kat

Wow, this year has flown!! Happy Birthday, dear Malina!!

(and welcome home to you, Vicki! xo)

What a grand year it's been! Sometimes it seems to me that she surely can't be a year already and other times it feels like she's been here much longer - probably because she's such a delightful baby and human being. Happy Birthday, Malina, and welcome home to you!

Kym

Oh, my! I can't believe she's already 1. She is such a sweetheart. Happy birthday, little Malina! Here's to a year full of adventure and growing. XOXO

Carole

It's been a joy watching her grown this past year! Happy Birthday, Malina!

Mary

What a wonderful year it's been - Happy Birthday, Malina! She seems to have such a sweet, chill personality ... the kind of baby that might mean there's a #4 in the plans?! ;-)

Annette

Malinda has grown just beautifully and comfy in her loving family - what a joy to watch, via your photos.

A birthday is a perfect way to slip into reentry! Welcome home and a very Happy Birthday to that beautiful babe!

Nothing like a first birthday celebration to help with jet lag, but how can it be a year already? I loved your trip- so much to see thanks. These pix are wonderful- Malina has her own Alabama Chanin style outfit! what a lucky gal. All the handmade with love items are heartwarming to see.
