I was just browsing through my Windows Explorer and saw that I see still had a few pictures there which were originally meant for posting in this blog.
One such set of pictures is the one taken the day AFTER her 1st birthday party. The day when my one and only child opened her gifts. I've decided to not include all photos from that day since they are just TOO many! And if I remember correctly, Maia was really all over the place that day. She couldn't sit still. Perhaps she got a little excited seeing all the boxes on the bedroom floor...and in different shapes and sizes! I even thought, then, that in the beginning, she liked the gifts in their "un-opened" state...for she went a little irate when we started to tear the wrappings and open the boxes. But she did ease up once she saw what we were pulling out from them.
So, for this post, I got rid of the blurry ones and retained those that, at least, showed Maia's face. I even wrote a little something on each photo to describe what was happening at the time. Hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I had fun posting them. :)
