You know life is good when there is just no time to sit down and blog. A special little someone turned one earlier this week. We were in Cozumel, Mexico for Vivian’s actual birthday, but celebrated her birthday with friends and family with a backyard barbecue before we left.
Her first birthday was a bittersweet one. It made me realize just how fast this last year went by, and it hit me like a ton of bricks that she’s growing up and won’t stay little forever. It’s easy to get caught up in the early baby stages with all the spit up and night time feedings, and when it’s all over you think back and remember how tender and sweet those moments really were. Vivian was born preemie at 34 weeks and weighed only 3lbs 13oz and stayed in the NICU for 2 1/2 weeks. In a way I’m grateful for that because she stayed “little” for what seemed a little longer than most babies since preemies take longer to catch up.
I don’t want this post to become a sappy one so I will end it here, with a few pictures of Mexico and her birthday.
The staff at the resort were the best, they made her a “birthday cake” and sang the traditional mañanitas to her.
Day trip to a small village El Cedral in Cozumel.
Beautiful Playa del Carmen. Why can’t I live here?
