HaPpY FIRST BiRtHdaY AaShiNi!!!

Yesterday was Aashini's first Birthday (November 7th). It was definitely different than Aashini's First Day outside ;) I'll be posting some other pictures soon (you know, bear pictures and other stuff) but today I'm posting the birth DAY pictures :)
Here she is opening a present from Hazel :)
Here she is with her first taste of cake! She was excited!
She started off by picking it up so daintily...
Then she went straight for the icing! Like a pro! Every time she took a lick of frosting, she would shudder - not sure why - maybe it was too sweet? It was sooo funny!
She made quite a mess!
She doesn't seem to like her fingers to be dirty, so she started licking them clean.

She had a fun birthday!

You know, I teared up a little at this post. I can't believe she is one! I can't believe mine is right behind her... where did this year go?

But I am also blown away at the changes in her! She was so little and skinny. I remember praying for both Aashini and Andrea. Now look at her! There is no way to tell that little girl was a premie!

Craziness!

Happy Birthday Aashini!

Seriously, did this day come and go and we somehow missed it on our calendars!??? We are such bad friends!! I am terribly ashamed of our belated birthday wishes! YIKES!
We've been talking about it for weeks now around our house, knowing the day was coming soon. Geesh! We're so sorry!
At any rate, it looks like she had a blast! What a great moment to experience, as you think back over the year and where He has brought you and your family. I still recall the anticipation of hearing how you were doing, getting updates from your parents and finally getting to talk to Adam at the hospital. Despite the struggles in the beginning, what a miracle you have before you! Praise God for Aashini!! We love you all! :-) Next year, we won't forget either!
