Friday, my little muffin turned one. And since fruit is the reason for her existence, I made her a blueberry cake with strawberry frosting.
Delicious cube o' cake
She didn't quite know what to do with an entire cake at her disposal. She touched it gingerly before tasting it.
Then Saturday we had a fun party at a park with friends. It was a cool day - not the nicest we've seen this summer, but it didn't rain. And the silver lining was that we had the park all to ourselves.
And it was so fun that Lucy had to pass out for 3 hours afterward.
I just love how she sleeps all tucked in. Her crossed legs under her and her arms all tucked under. When I rock her before bedtime, she buries her little arms into my shirt if she can. I tried to wake her up from her nap after a couple of hours (because I was worried about bedtime, you understand) and she gave me such a stink-eye that I left her be.
Apart from the party on Saturday, the Bubba and I spent the better part of this weekend just sitting around. We took full advantage of a lazy weekend to just relax and enjoy our daughter. We played songs with her on the piano and we helped her build towers of blocks. And we had the chance to actually notice all the amazing changes in her just in the past week.
But I'll go into that more tomorrow or Wednesday - we have her one year well-baby checkup tomorrow late afternoon, and I'll update her stats as well as her new skills.
She sure is amazing. My toddler.
