Mila turned 1 on October 24th. We had a party for her that day with a group of 23 friends at a local park.


Mila enjoyed herself. She walked around and took it all in.

We ordered Lebanese food which included: lamb, beef, chicken, humus, pita bread, and side serving of fresh and pickled vegetables.

I made a sign to display at the party highlighting her milestones and personality.

Lots of people came to show their love and excitement for Mila’s big day!

Mila was unsure about what to do with the slice of cake in front of her at first. We’ve never given her cake, cookies, or anything of the such.

After examining the cake she decided that she didn’t want to try it, but instead, get out of the chair.

After some coaxing, she scrape her finger across the icing, placed her finger in her mouth, and this was her expression.

After that first taste, she was on a mission.

We were and are very proud of our little girl.
