Get Ready to SCROLL
She's 1!!! She maybe toothless, and a tad on the not going anywhere anytime soon plan... BUT SHE'S 1! I am enamored by this baby... she is the happiest little thing!
The Birthday girl had a wonderful day. She slept in until 9, ate as much whipped topping as she wanted, decided not to nap, and celebrated her birthday with so many who love her.
It was the perfect party! I had been looking forward to this day for over a year. There is too much to say (so I'll spare you) about the emotion of the day...it was overwhelming.
A huge thank you to my parents, and to uncle Rye and Megan for taking pictures, to Beebs, Annalisa, and Laurie for all their help, and the decorating crew (those pesky polka dots), and to everyone who brought food- it was nummy num!
I couldn't be more pleased with her party- I loved it!!! I am sad that Mia's heart sister who was on her way had to turn back due to illness- we missed you Maddie and Katie, but 2 will be here before we know it.
There are a lot of pictures I didn't make happen, (like Mia with her heart buddy Luke) but here are some pictures that pretty much sum up the party.

Birthday girl with her momma opening her gifts. She loved the tissue paper, and just wanted it in her mouth! She received many lovely gifts including a lot of books, (she loooves books) this one is from her heart buddy and cousin Gav.

Getting ready for my birthday wish
Not a big fan of a large group of people singing to me
Ok, the singing stopped- now, I can dig in
The older sister
A little bottle action..still not taking enough while I'm awake.

Thank you to everyone who came, and for the wonderful gifts! Also, thanks to our online friends who left her some birthday wishes.
