. . . for Lauren and Lauren: One more

One more


One more birthday post and then I'm ready to move on.  Actually not really ready.  I'm kind of sad the party is over and Addilyn is now a toddler.  Her birthday week was more emotional than I thought it would be, as it was hard for me to not be sad that time moves so quickly and she changes so fast.  I just want to go back to her tiny baby days once in awhile.  But this last week we've done some really fun things.  She's walking more and has been saying a few words which is a reminder that there is so much more exciting things to come! 

Addilyn did great at her party.  Happy, social and tear free except for the minute we tried to put her in the highchair to sing to her.  Huge tears!  Thankfully she was fine once I picked her up, so we sang happy birthday to her first, put her back in her chair and she was happy eating her cake.  Although there wasn't much eating.  Mostly playing with it and feeding Chris and I.  

Is this not the saddest little face?  How dare we try to sing and give her cake? 

 
(This one cracks me up.  Like she's telling me all about it.)

I've said it before, but I really feel like a one year birthday party is more for the parents than the baby.  It was so fun to celebrate with everyone.  Addilyn is lucky to have family and friends that love her and came to celebrate her.  There is something so special about watching other people love on the thing that you love the most.  I'm grateful for all these pictures to remember such a special, fun day.  


And you're probably grateful all the birthday posts are over.  Moving on.  

Promise.

My daughter's first birthday is today. We don't live close to family so we didn't have a big party. I've enjoyed reading your posts though. :-)

My nephew did the same thing when we sang to him. He wanted us to stop!! He was 3!! I think for a few years they just really don't know what's going on but eventually they will get it and LOVE IT!!
