A Trip Down Memory Lane: Dafney's 1st birthday

Hi All - it's been FAR TOO LONG since my last post, but I hope to be back to normal posts {fingers crossed}!  I have so much to catch up on, I don't even know where to begin {sigh}.

Let's start with Dafney's first birthday!  It was such a special day.  I can't believe she's already a year old.  We have watched her grow, learn & turn into this amazing little girl.  She's funny, {a little} sassy, sweet & so stinking cute {um, I might be biased}!  On her actual birthday, my parents came over & we just ate dinner & paid extra attention to the sweet birthday girl.  

We let Dafney open a few of her gifts, which was so much fun to watch.  She actually was quite interested in opening her first gift.  After that, she just wanted to play with her new toy & didn't care about her other gifts!  The Hubs & I got her a walker type toy & she even took her very first steps with the toy on her very first birthday!  Totally amazing!  

That Saturday, we had our immediate family over to celebrate Dafney's birthday!  I may have been a little spastic about the whole thing {can you blame a mama for wanting her baby's first party to be perfect?!}, but it turned out amazing!  I made some brunch food: fruit, mini Monkey Bread's, ham & egg cups, mini-muffins & of course, cupcakes!  After we ate, we let Dafney open her gifts; let's just say our baby is one lucky little girl!  She received so many amazing gifts ♥

After the gifts, we could tell she was starting to meltdown, so we did birthday cake.  We lit a candle, sang "Happy Birthday" & let her dive right into that little cupcake!  At first she wasn't so sure, but within about 5 seconds, she realized how sugary tasty the treat was & dug right in!  It was completely adorable & so much fun to see!  

While she was eating her cupcake, she had a total meltdown & we knew it was time to clean her up & let her nap.  She went down for almost 3 hours!  Party animal!!

It was truly an amazing time...like the day she was born, it was a day I will never forget!  

Dafney's ONE Year Stats:

Weight - 16.5 lbs {she's one tiny little girl}
Height - 28.5 inches
Clothes - mostly 9 months, she can wear some 12 month shirts
Her new "tricks" - She say's "Uh-Oh" all the time.  She's walking really well with a little help.
