Last week, Lyla celebrated her first birthday. It's hard to believe my little baby is 1.
It is also hard to believe I have already given her 3 hair cuts.
We spent her actual birthday at Sea World. Lyla and Benjamin LOVE Sea World and we live about 15 minutes away (I have to remind myself of these good things about living in Florida when I am sweating in shorts and a t-shirt in December). She especially loves the penguins and the sharks. There is also this really great area for kids with a giant sandbox.
They are both making odd faces in the picture above, but I think that's why I love it.
Sea World has some beautiful Christmas decorations.
We got to pet an adorable little Wallaby.
Grant wanted to surprise me and pick out a special birthday outfit for Lyla. I thought this was so sweet. Normally I wouldn't say anything if I wasn't crazy about her outfit or if things didn't exactly match. Ahem... He put her in a slightly too small fall purple linen dress and a summery pink, green, and brown skirt. Seriously Grant? He still thought it was adorable, so she ended out wearing it all day. Only a baby could pull off something that crazy.
