Finn turns 1!
In some ways it seems like such a long year- to think that Finn was born in Ann Arbor, Michigan just a little over a year ago, and Ahren and I were sent home with this eight pound little baby… and now we’re in Raleigh, North Carolina with a little lady that can communicate and laugh and eat and dance… in other ways the year really has just flown by for us… I need for it to slow down!
We decided to mark her first birthday with a big party, because, after all, she is a Hyman/Rittershaus (and also all of the Boston contingent was able to come down for a long weekend!)… so we started the planning and had a fantastic day. Here are quite a few images documenting the weekend…

|We hung photos from each month of Finn’s life|
|a little table that allowed family to write Finn a note for her to open when she turns 18…|

|Happy Birthday, Finn!|
Also, my talented sister-in-law Annaliese made a video for Finn’s birthday present… you can see that here.
