Can our baby be any cuter?
She stood up by herself here-
It was only about her 3rd time doing that!
She looks like a little ballerina! 
Nixon Elizabeth Hunt- 1 year old
Look how far she's come:

Nixon's 1st After Party

When Nixon came home from the hospital last new years eve, after spending her first 77 days in the NICU, Adam and I decided that we would celebrate her 1st birthday by participating in the CHOC Walk. Instead of an elaborate party, we would raise money for other babies who, like Nixon, were brought into the world too early.
Thanks to the generosity of our friends and family were successful in our efforts, and Nixon's team, Dumbo's Favorite Peanut, raised $1,440 for Children's Hospital Orange County!

Total, the CHOC Walk raised $1,366,445 for sick children. WOW! 

Even though we focused the majority of our efforts in planning for the CHOC Walk, Adam and I still wanted to celebrate Nixon's 1st birthday in an intimate way with our friends and family, so we decided to throw a little after-walk party, so Nixon could have cake and everyone could see how big she's been getting. 
It was great seeing everyone come out to join us in celebrating Nixon's first year! Adam and I are so blessed to have so many great friends in our lives who continually show us how much they care about us and our daughter! 

Special thanks to Matt (and Nina) for hosting us AGAIN- You have a beautiful home and we appreciate your generosity!
The Beautiful Birthday Girl

Thanks for all of the great gifts, and for all of the CHOC donations!

My friend Amanda and I made these sweet treats, but I gave up on the cake and just went to COSTCO! LOL

As it turns our, the Peanut doesn't like cake!

We even had a clown!
