Happy First Birthday, B! | Mommy and Me Monday | 255th ed


Dear B-

You are ONE! I can’t believe it. In fact, I think I prefer to say 12 months. Mommy isn’t ready for you to keep growing. Even your sisters have picked up on it.

So, the night before your birthday, we snapped one quick last “not one” picture.

Then you woke up and you were one. And figured out your cheese face!

Before I forgot, I wanted to snap a picture of you at your birthplace. Our downstairs bathroom:) Nope, I’ll never stop mentioning your arrival!

Mommy got a new camera for Christmas….and I got pictures in our living room without a flash, which is kind of amazing, so I have to put them here. It’s for me!

Because I need to remember how you love to crawl up to that purple chair, and sit in it and just take everything in.

You currently have 6 teeth. You have the silliest crawl, cruise the furniture, wave, say “hi”, clap your hands and sign “all done.” I’m sure you have other “tricks” too, but that’s what mommy’s tired brain remembers.

I made your sister a banner for her first birthday, and we used it for her second (and likely third and well, all of them because I cut everything out by hand!). This time, I wised up and use the Silhouette (pennant from design file #43106 and the font is KG Counting Stars.) Note to mommy, don’t use yellow with white again!

You thought the sign and backdrop was fun for your pictures, touch, touch, tough. Your sisters were handy helpers and sneaky spy-ers. (When you see your big sister E after school everyday, you squeal the loudest squeal….you are one loved little sister!)

So very loved!

B, we think you are pretty awesome and fit in just right with this crazy loud house you were born in and born into.

I know God picked you for us and us for you and I’m so very glad!

One year olds still need mommy

Mommy is pretty darn proud of this picture I took with some Facebook messenger help from a friend. Maybe you can teach an old dog new tricks!

  2. Her cheese face is the cutest thing ever! It is so great that you are documenting these milestones for her. It brings back memories of my 10 year old who has that same purple chair. Keep taking pictures of her in it and watch how she grows. Enjoy these precious moments!

    1. I needed to come remind myself today how lucky they are to have each other….and remind them. Because today wasn’t the best “glad to have you” kind of day!

    I love first Birthdays, they are so exciting. I remember when we had our kids first Birthdays, to me it is the most fun they ever had, especially watching them interact with everything around them.
