i apologize for not posting some pics earlier. last week was pretty busy, i guess. aunt jo-jo & michaela came for a visit. then we headed to gramma & grampa’s for a visit and a very helpful babysitting deal while The Mr. & i went to a friend’s wedding.
the birthday weekend was a success. thursday (actual bday), The Mr. & i went to lunch, ran some errands, and got her pictures made. we gave her our gift to unwrap. i’d post the video of her unwrapping, but really, we don’t want to waste about 10min of your life watching her watch the box. we gave her a little push/ride-on car that she has no interest in yet. well, save for the little piece that she likes to pop off in the front.
saturday the 11th (her due date!) we had gramma & grampa, and kenny & amy & their baby over. unfortunately, my bff wasn’t able to make it with her daughter. but amy had made the cutest ladybug cake for the occasion (thanks, amy!) and we all enjoyed ourselves watching the babies watch each other. we dipped in the pool and then cut the cake. this time, we even tried ice cream. let’s hope she does, in fact, have some grampa & me in her. b/c at first taste, ice cream was NOT her friend. we have good video, at least!
but here are the money shots:
(by the way— the plates/napkins came from the cutest online store! they sent me better than average emails tracking my order with poetry. was fun! the cups i had fun dotting myself. i’m quite the talent. you know, compared to the awesome freakin cakes that amy made. that were also delish!!!)
