MAC \\ 1st Birthday Party

Even though it was a soggy Mississippi Saturday, we enjoyed celebrating Merrimac’s first birthday.

Of course, I couldn’t resist photographing a few moments throughout the day; however, more than anything, I wanted to savor M’s birthday & to enjoy watching her encounter new experiences without worrying about capturing each second. I took many mental photographs–big eyes when we started singing & she saw the candle, purposefulness in eating her carrot cake, watchfulness when it came to opening presents.  Then there were the boys happily playing together, the first cookout of the season, laughter with friends & family, icing the first of many birthday cakes, a very happy baby–it was a good birthday, even if she won’t remember a thing.
