Today was my first birthday party! I had so much fun! Mommy and Daddy rented out one of the community centers in our neighborhood. It was too cold to go swimming so the party was indoors. My Mommy, Daddy, and our great friends helped decorate the room in a “Blue’s Clues” theme. Blue’s Clues is my favorite TV show!
A clown came to the party too and she painted faces (I wasn’t into that though), made balloon animals, and did a little magic show. We all got to have some yummy cake. Over 40 people came to my party including my nannies, nurses, therapists, friends, and even my memere Ellie and grandma Marilyn and grandpa Bob who all came from Iowa for my big day. We all had so much fun and later that night Mommy and Daddy let me open my presents. Wow! Jackpot! I got the neatest things ever! I think we need to throw another party soon so I can get some new toys.
Today I went with my Mommy, Daddy, and grandparents to Pigtails and Crewcuts to get my first “official” haircut. Mommy did cut my hair once in the back a little bit but it was an amateur haircut so I don’t count it. I screamed at the lady since I did not want her taking my hair! Mommy said it needed to be done since tomorrow will be a big day for me.
Yeah! It is my first birthday today! Can you believe I am finally one? Mommy and Daddy can’t! Well, actually they can. They always knew I would be one some day even though the doctors didn’t think so. They said they have been waiting for this day for a long time. Apparently I cry a lot and the older I get, the less I cry. So, they wanted time to go fast so I would stop crying. Well, I still cry but not as much as I did back when I was a baby.
So I bet you are wondering what I did on my first birthday? Well, I went to physical therapy, my mommy and daddy interviewed a candidate to be my new nanny on Tuesdays and Thursdays, then I had a dermatologist appointment, and after I fell asleep my grandparents flew to Austin. Mommy also weighed me. I am 21 pounds 10 ounces today!
We did take some cute pictures a few days ago. Here they are!
