On Saturday, I went to Jada’s first birthday party. I can’t believe it’s been a year already!  Kwame and Julie had family in town, Allison and her family was there too and we bbq’d for lunch.

For some reason, she wasn’t really happy that day, and this is as much of a smile (if you even can call it that) that we got out of her!
