First, we woke up, had some cozies and then bathroom mirror time, all Natsby's faves.
We used extra crinkly wrapping paper which she loved and left the edges open so she could tell something was inside. She got really excited when she saw the flashing lights.
Then she got bored and decided to wander off...
Then, she played! She combined blankie and drumset so that she could partake of both. (The other wrapped present was a new swimsuit Austin picked out, so cute!)
We had lunch (cut up strawbs and sweet potato baby food, classic) and then went on an outing! We chose a couple of cute new items at Once Upon a Child and then picked up supplies to make sock puppets (stay tuned). We were pooped afterwards so we took aNOTHER wonderful nap!
Then, Daddy got home for his break! Hooray! We took turns reading the Dr. Seuss Happy Birthday Book (bday tradition in our house) and went swimming.
|I can't get enough of this (p.s. check out the new suit!)|
We had dinner at McDonald's (only because it's Monopoly time, aka freebies!), said goodbye to Daddy while he went to class, and then went to the library on our way home. Daddy snuck out of class early and we got all ready for bed, read a story, sang songs, and had cozy time before putting our sweet girl down after her big day.
You guys, she's ONE!! We still can't believe it. It seems like she suddenly grew up about ten times in just one day, just because she is officially a year old. CRAZY! This time next year she'll be TWO!! But we aren't thinking of that yet. We are just enjoying our wonderful Natsby every single day - she brings SOOO much joy to our lives and to those around her; she's independent and so smart and she loves her Kitty and sippy and is sometimes silly, sometimes serious and doesn't get anxious around strangers and sleeps well and plays well and is healthy and beautiful and WE LOVE HER SO MUCH.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, NATALIE JANE!!!!
