Happy Birthday to Meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!


cake!

The party was Sunday in Ohio, but the day is today September 2nd at 7:14pm blee turns a year old.

I'm in shock. I'm also completely exhausted from the trip and needing to do a bunch of things now that we are home.

The trip was fantastic though despite the fact that my little one is getting her first molars in. She handles teething so freaking well, like the little trooper that she is.

And I got to see family, my best friend from college and a couple of Etsy people; Stilettoheights and Gemmafactrix.

only took two plus years

It has been a crazy wonderful year. Blee is very loved by us, her family and her extended family here in the online world. That has become very clear to us and was driven home this weekend at the party. Thank you to everybody who was there following the horrible pregnancy, anticipating this little one and just caring. I already will have so many stories to tell her when she is older about how she was our little superstar.

I'm probably missing about a million things that I could be saying right now because I am so exhausted. I am thankful for our family, our friends, her Etsy aunties and others. This kid is getting a big memory box full of handmade goodies built up for her.

May year two be even better.

Happy Birthday, little one! She'll be talking by the end of the next year! One to two is such an exciting age, well, I guess they are all. Enjoy them all.
