Esther's birthday was July 4th and she is all decked out for the occasion with her flag T-shirt compliments of Grandma Garner. She is also very fond of her red, white and blue flowers received from her proud daddy! She really enjoys flowers as does her mother and so her Dad wanted to be sure that she received some of her very own flowers on her very first birthday.

Esther received her very own baby swimming pool from mom and dad which she really enjoyed playing in on her birthday. We can't believe she is one now, boy how the days and months flew by. Her adorable swimming suit was a gift, one of the many might I add, given to Esther by her Grandma Garner. Isn't that inquiring face precious. Aside from eating and maybe watching baby Einstein, swimming and bathing are favorite activities of hers. Esther never tires of the water.

For her birthday Grandma Garner gave Esther a wooden ring toy that Esther is really enjoying even to this day. She loves to pull all of the rings off and then try to put them back on. Also, as you can see in this first picture she really thinks the wood is quite tasty. However, she is also teething and may find comfort on sucking on the cool wood of the toy. This is a wonderful fine motor activity and she is able to learn about colors at the same time!! Thanks Grandma Garner!!!

Here Esther is patiently waiting to begin opening her presents and really curious as to why everyone is so camera happy. You capture super sweet poses like this one when you can, because everyone knows how quickly the little one move from one position to the next. Good thing the birthday camera crew stood ready for every adorable shot. I must admit that I don't know who was more excited to actually open the gifts Esther of her Aunt Whitney, pictured here. At any rate everyone had a blast and the best part is that Esther's birthday gets celebrated with parades, fireworks and fun every year with no effort on mom and dad's part. I bet you are all jealous.

yes, I can't believe the last 15 months has passed as quickly as it has. I can only envision the joys from what you and Bran and of her other family will yet to come with this adorable sweet girl. I'm the proud grandma!, yet you have done all the work.

by the way, those barbie dolls in the pool are not Esther's.
