Second and third kids are gonna get totally gipped for their first birthdays. Here's your blown out candle and a cupcake. Happy day, the end. Oh yeah, I'm also going to deny this growing up to be a toddler thing for as long as possible. As long as she keeps the bald look she's basically under 1. #mylenavi#1stbabyrave
We celebrated our little 1 year old's birthday today with family and friends. Thanks so much to everyone for partying with us at Lena's BABY RAVE. Thanks for being a part of "our village" as we've navigated this whole new world of parenting. We couldn't manage life too well without a little bit of help and grace—so thank you, thank you, thank you! #mylenavi#lenaturnsone#1stbabyrave#mylenavi#cakesmash#cakesmashshoot
Miss Lena Violet is ONE today and we couldn't love her more. All I can say is, this baby loves life. Everything is THE MOST EXCITING THING EVER! She is constantly on the move, loves attention and getting people to smile. She'll squirm and squirm one moment and want to cuddle the next. She talks, sings and dances every chance she gets. She's standing on her own unassisted and claps for herself after she does so, haha. I've never had so much laughter in my life on a daily basis—she's a total goof. Pretty darn thankful for this baby girl. She's our sunshine ☀️ Happy Birthday Lena. #mylenavi#lenaturnsone
Our little love is 1 today! 😭 It's been the best, most challenging, and most fun year of my life so far. My heart got super-sized chock full of baby love and I'm just so incredibly thankful for her—she's our boom boom, sunshine, honey badger, Luna, miss Leena, baby bat, pterodactyl, toot n' scoot and little love. #mylenavi
Good thing I'm distracted planning a birthday party because the nostalgia is really hitting hard this week. She was so tiny 😭 I don't regret a single photo of the thousands I took of her this past year. #mylenavi
I think of my small and mighty, southern grandma every Easter because she would fervidly sing this hymn every Easter morning which then got passed down to my mother. I got the hymn texted to me this morning: "Lo in the grave he lay Jesus my savior Waiting the coming day Jesus my Lord UP from the grave He A-ROSE! With a mighty triumph o'er His foes He arose a victor of the dark brigade And He lives forever As His saints proclaim He AROSE!! He AROSE!! Hallelujah, Christ Arose!!!! 🎉🎉🎉"
