Let Them Eat Cake

Sorry for the delay in posting, I have had a serious case of writer’s block. The last time we “spoke” we had just finished showing off all the details for Little Miss’ first birthday and had promised to share all the birthday fun. Well, the photos were edited and have been sitting and waiting to be put into post form, but no words were coming. I know someone of you would not mind just getting pictures but that is not how we roll around here, we like to get all wordy with our posts. So let’s get this post party started with the one and only adorable Little Miss and her grandma rockin’ the ultra cute party dress and headband her Aunt Kat-Kat got for her cause every girl needs a party dress.   Birthday Girl 001 Little Miss did surprisingly well with her birthday festivities: no fussing of any kind. But she did however fall asleep 30 minutes into it. Thankfully our guests were all rock stars and understood how unpredictable babies can be. Is she still technically considered a baby now that she is one or is she a toddler now? Never really understood when that transition is supposed to happen so I am going to call her my baby until she moves out. After her disappearance nap, Little Miss got right down to business opening all the wonderful presents her guests were so kind to bring her. Birthday Girl  002 Poor little thing was not that into ripping the paper off, I blame that partially on the grogginess from her very fresh nap. The goodies in the wrapping paper were another story; she loved them. Her baby dolls all got kisses and hugs, her clothes got the appropriate ohs and ahs, and the cards were passed to brother to read as she looked on and chimed in her two cents.  The lucky girl made out with a whole gambit of new dresses and enough baby dolls to make her look like she is in the running for the next edition of 19 Kids and Counting, the baby doll version of course.  What you ask did Little Miss get from mommy and daddy? Birthday Girl 003 A pink rocking scooter of course! She LOVES it almost as much as I love it. I had wanted to build one for her ever since I was pregnant with her (and found out she was a girl) but when I found this one online I could not pass up it since it actually cost less to buy it than for me to make it (SCORE)! After a good cruise around the family room with her much practiced parade wave to all her guests, she made her way to the grande finale of any birthday party: the cake! Let Them Eat Cake 005 We had been practicing singing the birthday song and blowing out the candle for a month before the big day. And every time we practiced she would clap and blow out her candle at the right moment. Call it stage fright but she had to call in reinforcements for the candle blowing, thankfully her big brother helped her out and even told her the wish was still hers to make. Awww, he is too kind for words to her. Sorry girls he is not allowed to date, ever. Let Them Eat Cake 004 I had anticipated another cake massacre al la Padawan and stripped Little Miss down to the bare essentials: her FuzziBunz and her headband. Again, she is full of surprises and was the most dainty little eater of cake I have ever seen. She would just poke at the cake and then take a little bite off her finger before poking at it again for her next teeny tiny bite. That’s right the cake is pink zebra print on the inside if you didn’t notice and the most nerve wrecking cake ever to cut into cause I honestly did not know if it would turn out or not. Thank goodness it did and did not turn out like a messy blob of color cause no one wants to eat ugly looking cake.Let Them Eat Cake 005A part of me was so glad to be done with all the planning and to have the party wrapping up, but then the other part of me was sad that my little baby is growing up way too fast. She even proved how big of a big girl she was that day by taking her first steps (4 to be exact) all by herself! It is hard to believe that we had just meet this cute little bundle of awesomeness a year ago. Her personality has grown so much in this first year into such a kind, sweet, funny, and gentle little girl. Happy First Birthday, Little Miss, we love you!Let Them Eat Cake 007 Let Them Eat Cake 008 So we survived the first birthday (and the first year!) with our Little Miss. It really is a bittersweet feeling when the first birthday comes and goes, don’t all you mamas out there agree? Or am I the only one who gets teary eyed when thinking about it?
