And last week was Abi’s First birthday!  Why do I continue to think I need to do all this stuff and make myself frazzled to the point of not enjoying what should be a fun day?  I made about 600 cupcakes (OK, I exaggerate) with homemade icing.  I did draw the line at having a huge spread.  Tedious though it was, I am quite impressed with myself and did have one person tell me they were the best cupcakes he had ever had. 

Vindication!

Abi got loads of toys (far too many – but try and tell people a one year old doesn’t need anything and they look at you like your nuts) and did so well with all those people in the house.  We have lots of family and friends that might as well be family that were kind enough to share Abi’s birthday with us.  So happy everyone was there to celebrate.

Happy First Birthday Baby Girl!

  1. Congrats on the B-day! I never realized how complex emotionally these occasions are. It’s exciting that they are growing up and sad for the same reason. As much as I can’t wait to see who Ruby becomes, I would give almost anything to keep her at her age now. Enjoy this next year!
