On Tuesday, June 18 my youngest child Naomi turns 1 so we decided to get a head start and celebrate her birthday Saturday at Cool de Sac. We had a blast with nearly all of our closest family members present, including all of Naomi’s beloved cousins, my 99-year-old grandma Micaela, my mom, my father in law, aunt Millin and more family and friends. Here’s a little photo recap to commemorate the great first year this blessed child has given us!
NOW YOU SEE NAOMI….
NOW YOU DON’T!
JONATHAN WAS THE ONE WHO BAPTIZED NAOMI WITH CAKE ON HER FACE…ANGELA WAS NOT AMUSED!
WE CHOSE THE OWL THEME FOR NAOMI’S BIRTHDAY BECAUSE IT REMINDS ME OF MY LATE GRANDMA MARGARITA AND BECAUSE WE WANT HER TO GROW UP TO BE A WISE AND GODLY WOMAN
THE OLDER I GET, THE MORE I CHERISH MY CHILDREN’S BIRTHDAY PARTIES. TO THINK I ONCE LOAHED KID BIRTHDAY PARTIES!
FOUR OF THE GALS I MOST LOVE, FROM LEFT TO RIGHT: TIA MILLIN, ABUELA MICAELA (99 YEARS OLD), MY LOVELY WIFE AND BABY NAOMI (BARELY 1)
MORE GALS THAT I LOVE: MY LITTLE SISTER MAGGIE, MY MOM AND ME.
ONE OF THE BIRTHDAY PARTY HIGHLIGHTS WAS THE FACE PAINTING!
OUR FACE PAINTING QUEEN MARIBEL POSES WITH SOME OF THE OTHER KIDS SHE PAINTED
GRANDPA MANUEL AND JOSIE CAN’T GET ENOUGH OF NAOMI’S CUTENESS
THE KIDS CHANGED INTO DISGUISES AND CAME BACK FOR ANOTHER GROUP PHOTO
WHEN SHE ISN’T SMILING, NAOMI IS TYPICALLY EATING. WE NICKNAME HER ‘COMELONA’ BECAUSE SHE’S GOOD FOR FOOD ANYTIME!
