Yesterday was your first birthday. It was such a special day that we had looked forward to for weeks now. You started the morning with a long snuggle in bed with dad and I (and your doting brother Jude.) In the morning we went to the gym and you played in the playroom. Then we came home and you had lunch and the kids had early release from school so everyone was home in early.
In the afternoon we headed out to the swimming pool and we went swimming. You love the water so we thought that swimming would be the best activity for your first birthday.
After we got home we had take out from our favorite Mexican food restaurant. You will eat ANYTHING. You even drink Mommy and Daddy's "green" juice with a smile on your face. Your such a good eater of all foods but still so tiny for your age- such a little pixie- just like your sister Grace was.
We had cupcakes instead of cake.
We sang you Happy Birthday and
you smiled and tried to grab the candle.
Then it was time to dig in.
You didn't want to get your fingers
dirty in the frosting so your sister
Angelina came over and stuck her
fingers in the frosting and was feeding
it to you. Then you decided you would
just stick your face down and eat it.
It was really funny.
You were super pleased that you
figured out how to get the frosting
without getting your hands dirty.
Of course you love being the center
of attention. That is a given in this family!
Once you finally gave in and
stuck your hand in the cupcake
you were so silly!
It was 10pm at this point.
You were so over tired...
and so silly.
Once we had you all cleaned up
Daddy helped you open your presents.
You played for a little bit
with your new toys before bed.
Everyone was exhausted after all
the swimming, eating and fun.
You ended your birthday right
back in the same place it started!
(Snuggling in bed!)
Izzy- you are SUCH a blessing
to our lives. We love you.
Happy Birthday Baby Girl.
