My Baby Turns One!
This weekend, we had Lily's birthday party. It was a blast!
When Ann Catherine turned one, I bought a small cake for her to tear into. She did, but with a bit of trepidation.
Not Lily Baker.
I placed her cake in front of her, and she dug in! She had icing from the top of her head, to her belly. And she just kept stuffing cake in her mouth! It was hilarious! I truly had never seen anything like it. She threw caution to the wind and ate like it was the last supper.
The best part is that once she was through, Chris grabbed her to take her to the tub - and as they were passing through the door, Lily took her hands and shoved what was left on her fingers into her mouth. It was priceless.
I'm sharing some pictures - and then including other ones so you can see how cute she was once she was cleaned up.
It was such a wonderful day! Lily's birthday just reminded me of how incredibly blessed we are to have her. Lily approaches each day as if it's the best one ever. I always say, it must be great to live in Lily's world. She is so happy and full of life. She has filled a void that Chris and I didn't even know existed. And she did it just by being her.
I can't imagine a world without Lily. Luckily, I don't have to. Thank you God for giving us this precious angel!
