Three generations of first birthdays: left to right: Susan Palmer, Carrie Lincourt, and Maeve Linton Lincourt. Larger versions of these photos below.

Our daughter Maeve turned one this week. Carrie and I were pretty skeptical about one-year-old’s birthday parties. We’ve seen more than one child have a crying melt-down when there are a dozen-plus older kids running around and lots of noise and attention and confusion. So we opted for a low-key celebration at Maeve’s grandfather’s home in Orange County. Just a handful of family members. Here’s a video of the occasion. We’re sure that there will be bigger birthday celebrations in Maeve’s future.

Maeve turned one on July 30th. She’s doing well. Very healthy. She walks 2-5 steps here and there, but mostly she’s crawling, and frequently cruising holding onto tables, chairs, our legs, and other stuff. She’s saying mama, maaaaaaah!, and dada, too.

We haven’t really given her processed sugar yet. She’s still breastfeeding, and she likes to eat pretty much anything that adults around her are eating. Though she’s pictured at her first birthday with cupcakes before her (one with candle), all the sweets she had that night were fruit, mostly watermelon.

We deliberately posed her in a position similar to photos that we have of Carrie and Carrie’s mom on their first birthdays. The three photos are below.
