The Birthday party was a success. There is a whole story leading up to the day (which was yesterday). I will post about this later.
For now, I leave you with the picture of the cake.
I decided, quite late in the day, to participate in this.
It’s hard to believe that one year ago I gave birth to this amazing little creature. It doesn’t feel like that long ago (one year is a long time) yet in many ways so much time has elapsed, and she has changed so much. During this time, I have watched her grow from a tiny helpless baby angel to a very independent little girl. I can’t believe I can now call her a toddler. She is my pride and joy, and everyday I grow with her. Motherhood is such an amazing journey.
I am so proud of her and I am so everjoyed to be her mother (and to have played a part in the process that created such a litttle miracle).
Happy Birthday munchkin, mamma loves you dearly.
I never imagined that I would have such a hard time finding a suitable diaper for my daughter as she transitions from infant to crawler/toddler.
The Huggies little movers have given her a horrible diaper rash. I am at a loss as to what diaper to go with. I don’t like the new Pampers Cruisers with dry max and I’ve read numerous bad reviews on them, so I know I am not the only one. I wish they would just bring the original Cruisers back, a baby doesn’t need a thin diaper. Just stick to what works, really. – I’m going to have to purchase the original Cruisers on the internet, or wherever I can find them, because I am very disappointed with the Huggies. Although we did experience a few leaks when using the Cruisers, they were better as they didn’t cause such a rash; this rash won’t go away.
I am soooooo excited! We FINALLY got the cake for our daughter’s Birthday, and I love it. We also got a decent deal, I have been price shopping for so long! I thought I was going to have to shave down what I wanted until it wasn’t going to be even close to my original design, but this is so close and it is awesome– and most importantly hubby agreed to it!!!!
Yay! Celebrating on Sunday with a great cake, we’re also almost squared away with the food. Now the balloons and a few small decorations remain, but we’re almost ready to go! Finally! I thought the planning would never end and that I would never find a cake, with the prices out there.
PHEW! I am so relieved, and so, so happy right now.
I hope everyone had a Happy Mother’s Day.
I am busy with the preparations for my daughter’s First Birthday, which is very exciting and nerve racking at the same time. She is standing so well by herself lately. It’s adorable! She also walks when she can use her push cart as support, but not on her own. I wonder when she’ll be walking. It’s hard to know, I guess. I’m already running after her and all she does is crawl, I’ll be really running once she starts to walk!!
My daughter’s Birthday is fast approaching, her party is next Sunday. We’re almost ready; I am still haggling with the cost of her cake, though I have found a great bakery and I’m hoping they will do the cake. I’ve bought the favors, plates, etc. The caterer is almost squared away; since the party is not going to be huge (I still do not have all the R.S.V.P.s and some people have even changed their mind(!)) the caterers don’t require a large number of days notice. I am a little bummed, because I wanted other babies to be there, I was going to have 2 babies and a possible third (her age– there will be older kiddies there) now, it’s a definite 1, possibly 2. *Sigh* I just hope it will be a fun party.
I will be a Princess theme… all pink and very girlie.
