First Birthday Party

Today was Makayla's party for her first birthday. We obviously couldn't have the party on her actual birthday since it's Christmas and all...so we figured we'd just wait until it was totally far away from all the holidays. 

It was such an awesome time! Lots of our friends came and my mom even flew out from Ohio for it! It was really great. There were only two other kids there, but hey, it was Makayla's party anyway and we don't need anyone stealing the show from my baby girl! :)

She napped for an hour and a half of her awesome party, though. Which was fine by me...she needed the rest, I know that for sure! And I will NEVER, EVER, EVER wake a sleeping baby. NEVER.

When she woke up, we did cake! We took her shirt off and put a bib on her and let her go to town. At first she just went after the icing (a girl after my own heart!) and then I tore off a little piece of the cake and then she went in there! After we thought she'd had enough, I took the cake away and she screamed! So we gave it back to her. It was her snack for the afternoon.

After that, at dinnertime, I made sure she had a very healthy dinner of fruits and veggies, which is all she really eats anyway, so it wasn't that hard. She didn't even make a huge fuss when it was bedtime, either. I've heard so many horror stories about how people's kids are up all night after they have sugar, but my kid is just awesome, so that totally didn't happen.

It's been really great having my mom here. And we still have a whole week left! I'm so excited!

I'm off to bed and for now, I need to recoup from all the junk food I ate today....so full...I'll post some pictures tomorrow! :D

Yay! I hope she had a great birthday :) At least she ate the cake. I can't get Samantha to eat sweets (actually she loves junior mints). I can't wait for the pictures from her party.
