9.12.13 – First Birthday Recap

12 Sep

It came and went so quickly, but I think Miss Delaney had a super special first birthday.

It started with a wake-up greeting from Mommy and Daddy with balloons.

Then we had a birthday doughnut for breakfast. She wasn’t sure what to think at first, but after the first couple bites she went to town.

Then we opened one of her presents. She of course was more interested in the bow on top than actually ripping the paper. Once we got inside, she was super excited. If you are looking for a gift idea for your favorite musical toddler, I highly recommend the B. Toys Parum Pum Pum Drum from Target. She is a huge fan!

On top of it all, it was Laney’s first day of her Morning Out for Mom’s (MOMS) program at a local church (one morning a week with other kids her age). It was a little hard for me to drop her off with non-family members, but I know it will be so good for her. She of course didn’t even notice I was leaving as soon as she saw the toys and kids, and the teacher said she did great! No morning nap though made for one sleepy birthday girl!

For her final treat, she had her first taste of ice cream. We hit up our local fro-yo establishment. She had a few bites but ended up being more interested in playing with the napkins. And later tearing up the napkins and trying to eat the little pieces – guess she was more interested in fiber than ice cream. If she didn’t look so much like me, I would wonder if she was switched at the hospital since ice cream is a pretty regular part of our diet. 🙂

All-in-all it was a pretty great day! Laney said thank you for all the birthday wishes, and she can’t wait for the big party on Sunday!
