Yesterday we hosted Sunny’s 1st Birthday party. It was so exciting to have our friends and their children in our home. Sunny has become very social in her old age- she LOVES her little friends. I can’t blame her, they are rather adorable.
I spent most of Saturday and Sunday baking and decorating cupcakes, making a onesie for Sunny, and cooking for our party. I tried to resist giving Sunny a cupcake before the big Happy Birthday moment, but I just couldn’t resist- so she had oatmeal, banana, eggs, and a cupcake for breakfast!
After a quick nap it was time to change into our special birthday outfit. Uncle JC provided the adorable tulle and lace skirt.
The front of Sunny’s onesie says “ONE” and the back says “I DID IT”- this was Sunny’s first phrase and its just so fitting!
When all of our guest left we ordered rice and beans for dinner (Sunny’s favorite) she has taken to getting very angry with me when I don’t feed her quickly enough. Shouting MAMA! DAT! (that)
Tomorrow is officially Sunny’s first birthday. I have accepted that she is turning 1 and that there is nothing I can do, nor would do to change that. She is healthy, beautiful, loving, fun, brilliant, and perfect in every way imaginable.
So many of you have read my random thoughts, commented on this blog, and sent your support to our family, thank you so much for reading and sharing and supporting us we move through this life together. Being her Mom has taught me that I am never to old to learn, given me free license to speak my mind, and reminded me that sisterhood is still the most special gift of all. You’re presence here, whether we have met in person or not, warms my heart and brings constant joy to my life. Thank you, honestly, for reading and for helping us arrive at one year with such positive energy and awareness.
Tomorrow I will post Sunny’s final 12 month rocking chair photo as well as a look back at this amazing year, I hope you will tune in for that 🙂 And once that post is posted, we will once again move forward. I can not wait to see where her second year of life takes us.
Yay! You did it. You all did. (and the blog after, I cracked up, ie: playing NPR LOUD on the car radio). Way to rock out!
