An Arizona zoo has released an adorable video that celebrates the first birthday of Nandi the elephant.

The compilation starts with Nandi’s first breath, moving through major milestones before fully focusing on cute moments, like when she blows bubbles for the first time. Nandi’s also clearly a big fan of romping in the mud, as evidenced by multiple play dates with her brother and friends.

Her name comes from the Zulu language, and according to the Reid Park Zoo website, means “sweet” or “fun.” Nandi is also the name of of famed warrior king Shaka Zulu’s mother.
