Baby actually went to Yosemite last year when she was still in my tummy. She went back earlier this week for the first time since being born.
Enjoying the lodge bed
Smiling at Yosemite Falls (which is dry at this time of year)
We hiked to Taft Point, which I had never been to before. What an awesome view! Tom kept wanting me to stand closer to the edge, but I said no way! On the way back to the trailhead, Maia got super cranky so I had to take her out of the carrier and let her walk. So she did a little hiking, which was super cute, and so slow since she had to pick up every rock and stick along the way.
Tom just upgraded his camera and he went on a couple of photo walks. I especially love this nighttime one, which shows the rock formation called the Three Brothers.
The first birthday is called 돌 (Dol) in Korean. We didn’t go all out, but we did do a little family celebration the weekend before her birthday, including 돌잡이 (Doljabi), a tradition where an array of objects is placed before the baby and the item she chooses indicates her future. Maia went for the gavel, which means she is going to become a judge.
At the party with friends we had the following weekend, she ended up choosing the same thing, so it’s pretty much set in stone. 😛
