the day had finally arrived!
our little girl was turning one and i was determined
to make it as 'tradition-full' as possible.
for that's the fun of it all happening for the first time right?
happy first birthday our sweetest love, you are the best thing to celebrate.
she got balloons and happy birthday serenaded to her by her
two favorite people the morning of her first birthday.
be sure to watch her video, her little bashful smile is priceless.
i love that we will do this each and every year with her on her big day!
before lunch she got her presents from andy and i;
an outfit since she doesn't have enough :),
a new pair of jammies and
a crawl thru tunnel that we were certain she would love.
we were wrong, way wrong.
poor baby has only made it through max two times.
i think one day soon she will grow to love it.
i whipped her up a yummy turkey melt with fruit and
yogurt for her birthday lunch with birthday bear.
told ya, people. . . traditions.
then we were off for a cake pop at target and to grab a few last minute things for her big party.
she loved her pop and i love these pictures of her,
her little chubby hands touching each and every tiny sprinkle,
her sweet little smile, thinking "this is too good to be true!"
and her little angel face.
we couldn't have loved this day any more.
after a good long nap, daddy loaded us up to meet
papa and tootie at uncle juliio's in downtown.
it was a yummy birthday dinner and it was so good to be
sharing her birthday night with them.
she was so excited to see them and we were too!
she and i both were shocked at the goodie bag my mom put together for her.
junie's new jon hart was overflowing, literally with all
kinds of outfits, and shoes and new babies and the list goes on and on.
thank you papa and tootie for everything!
my crack up of a baby girl.
we laughed so hard at this picture!
we love you little one year old.
it was the best day ever celebrating your life.
we look forward to all of the years to come and continue to
thank the Lord for your health and the fact that you are ours.
happy first birthday!
