We celebrated Little A's actual birthday as a little family. I snuck out of work a little early so I could be with her right at 10:22am, the exact time she entered the world one year earlier. The rest of the day was pretty low key because Little A wasn't feeling 100% and we wanted to make sure she would be feeling her best for her party the next day.
Little A had a lot of fun opening her presents from Mommy and Daddy, but it took a very long time. Every time she got a piece of the wrapping paper off, no matter how small, she would hand it to Daddy. We got her a set of big, colorful blocks for building castles. For now she mainly likes the balls that came with it... and knocking down anything that other people build.
All day, she was such a sweetheart! Here she is giving Daddy some love.
Because it was her official birthday, we decided to pick up a few mini cupcakes for dessert. She wasn't totally sure what to think of her first sweet treat, but her reaction to the little cupcake was much happier than to her cake the next day!
