Happy Happy Birthday Selena

Our little punky girl celebrated her first birthday on the 27th and it was so exciting!! She has brought so much happiness and fullness into our lives, it is hard to remember life before her! She is learning and growing so much. She walks everywhere and gets into everything. Her favorite spots to be are splashing in the toilet and digging through the garbage! We have to keep a watchful eye on her. She says Dada, but no Mama. She can shake her head no, and points to things that she wants. She has recently become more of a Mama's girl, which of course I love! She is a little social butterfly though, waving and smiling at everyone we pass in the grocery store. Her hair is long enough now that I can pull it into little piggies that are so darling. I feel like her 1st birthday is such a bitter-sweet day. My baby is growing up....but my baby is growing up!!! She is so smart and makes me laugh every day. I have so much love for her and am so grateful to be her Mom!

Her Birthday just happened to fall on the first day we were at Disneyland and we loved that the whole family was there to celebrate! We had a little breakfast party for her and she was showered with love!

Zachary got her this darling little BYU jersey, you got to start training them young! It was such a special and memorable day. I just hope her 2nd year goes by a lot slower than her 1st year!


We were so lucky to take a little trip to the Happiest Place on Earth with my whole family! We had such a great time, we loved every minute. Selena was just a little doll on the plane ride. She wanted to be buckled into her own seat and read the safety booklet the whole time, always prepared that one!

First order of business- The Beach!!! We could not get over how amazing the weather was, we were in Heaven. Selena was exhausted and NOT a fan of the sand. She did however love all the birds at the beach!

First ride was the Tower of Terror. I think by far this was my favorite one!

Check out my Mom's face- Hilarious!

Little Mermaid

Selena got a Minnie Mouse from my parents for her Birthday, which she LOVED! She wasn't quite as sure about the big Minnie though....

All the Boys

Waiting for the parade

World of Color Show

Selena didn't show much expression on a lot of the rides, but she was lovin' Dumbo!

Autotopia with my Sweetheart! It was so nice going with the whole family because Zachary and I got to go on a lot of rides together while someone stayed with Selena!

Jungle Cruise she loved! And I just love her little ponies!

We had the best time and we can't wait to go back. Disneyland is truly one happy place!
