We're really not having Allie's birthday party until Sunday but I'm one of those that can't let the day go by without having a party on the actual date so that's what we did. Most of the time we don't do the kids parties on the actual day they were born but we do something with just us at home and have cake and they get a couple of their presents..then we do the other stuff on the day of their party. So I haven't done Allie's cake yet..that will be on Sunday..I just did cupcakes yesterday and we had spaghetti for dinner. Allie really hasn't been interested in food yet but spaghetti is one thing that she loves. Daddy came home early from work so we could do Allie's birthday stuff before Lucas' tournament game last night. I tell ya..baseball always gets in the way around our house. We had dinner which she loved and then we did cupcakes. She made a huge mess :) it was so much fun watching her play and she even ate some of it. If she made that big of a mess with a small cupcake we're going to have a colossal disaster zone on Sunday.
After she ate her cupcake she had a bath and then opened two of her presents. She loved opening presents...her attention was easily kept and she opened them like she'd been doing it for years. She got a little phone that you can take off the base and it talks and plays music and a cylinder that she can roll around on the floor. I know they are geared towards crawlers and even though I'm sure won't be crawling much longer..I thought she would love to play with it even as she was learning to walk around too. I saved the rest of her presents for Sunday when we do everything else. I'm excited but have tons to do and have spent the day today trying to get laundry done. We have two baseball parties this weekend on Friday and Saturday and then Allie's party on Sunday so we'll be exhausted by the time it's all over with. I can't believe she's 1...I still can't wrap my mind around it. I look at her and just can't believe that it's been a year since I first laid my eyes on her after she was born. How I ever got this lucky I'll never know but I love it!
