the morning of her 2nd birthday

Instead of buying her a present we decided to decorate our living room for her to wake up to. 
An extra special thanks goes to our family and friends for dropping by to wish Maya a happy birthday. Your love and presence means the world to us. Our hearts are full knowing just how loved our daughter is.
Here are a few pictures of our living room and Maya's reaction to being woken up by her grandparents and seeing her surprise. 

Dollar store balloons and those round price tag stickers from Wal-Mart

Maya LOVED this. An old picture frame from a flea market and ribbons glued to the back using double-sided 3M tape. I got the biggest most adorable sounding WOOOOOOW when she saw this.

To my dearest husband - I love you with all my heart. Thank you for teaming up with me and pulling this off.

To my dearest Maya - every single day I am in awe of how much you're teaching me. most of all I am in awe of all the love that pours out of you, unconditionally, all the time. Happy Birthday baby bird...from your mama
