I can’t believe how fast this year has gone! This baby is the best. She brings such love, excitement (and some frustration..) but I can’t imagine a single day without her in our lives. We started the morning off with presents from Grandma and Grandpa Phillips and Mema and Papa Mecham.
Then we got all dressed up in our new big girl clothes! I hadn’t bought her shirts yet, so it was so weird to see her all dressed up like a big girl! No more little infant onesies!! So sad.
Soon Nanny Joey came over to play so Mom could get to work! They had fun playing at the beach and took a long walk down the pier. I hear they even got to see some seals at the beach! What a treat! Then it was time for Dad to come home and the party to start. We met dad in our “backyard” for some pizza and juice and watch the sunset.
Then back to the house to eat her first ice cream cake…..yes…. she LOVES it.
Forks are fun, but fingers are better.
As an after party we blew up as many ballo0ns as we could find and went wild. She was running and screaming and jumping and dancing and giggling to death. By far the funniest 2 hours yet!
We quickly realized this would be more fun in a smaller area so we moved all the balloons to the crib. Yup. She loved it!
But the most fun happened when Dad joined in. Nothing like two silly people, a small space and lots of balloons! Happy First Birthday Ms Riley Belle! We love you to pieces!!!
