Maya's party was a good time. It was just the right amount of people without being totally overwhelming, but enough people to be a celebration. We ended up doing the party outside--the whole week we were going back and forth on it because the weather was supposed to be too hot. It was definitely a little muggy, but ended up being nice. We had cleaned up the lawn and it was nice to use it. Unfortunately, Maya decided to skip her afternoon nap--it made it difficult to run around and do the last minute stuff..and we thought she would be a big crankpot! She ended up being OK.
Maya's cake was a success with the guests, but the whole singing/eating thing didn't go over too well with Maya. She got overwhelmed and scared when everyone sang to her and then she really didn't know what to do with the cake when she got it. She played a little bit with it, but then wanted out of the highchair.
Here are some pics of the big day. I didn't want to spend the whole day with the camera in front of my face, so they're sort of limited.
