a happy first birthday

We celebrated a first birthday in more than one sense - not only did Bernadette turn one year old on July 29, but we also celebrated the first Sealy family birthday in New Zealand. Bernadette was delighted with the festivities, including her "bird-day" cake - a nod to her excitement over all things that fly, but particularly birds and airplanes.

She almost has the hang of blowing candles out, although Maria was more than happy to lend a hand with extinguishing the flame and unwrapping the presents....


  1. Happy Birthday little one!!

  2. What a beautiful bird-day cake! I love it!
