The only thing more unbelievable than Aya turning 1 is that we survived a whole year of parenthood. Babies like routine. She didn't get any of that. It's been a pretty wild year dragging Aya on countless trips around Cambodia and to 4 other countries. She's taken it all in well and has turned into a fun little girl that we enjoy immensely.

We rarely get enough sleep these days but life is pretty darn good for our little family.
Aya celebrated the day by having an Asian style birthday party with a bunch of her Cambodian friends and then later in the evening I baked a chocolate cake to celebrate our surviving one year of parenting which Aya also got her fingers into.
