Retro post Milana's 1st Birthday

So I am writing about my daughter's 1st Birthday a major milestone almost one year later?!  I think I just need a sticky note on my computer that says remember to blog.  I tell myself that you are working mom not living in your native country so cut yourself some slack right?  WRONG!!!!  Those are just excuses and I want to have this to look back on when I am sixty and can't remember anything.  As I am typing this "little miss" comes over and gives me a hug and a kiss.  No wonder I get so distracted!

I am not sure if Milana knew it was her birthday but for her expressions it seems like she did. She really had a blast.  We started out with wearing Tinker Bell tiaras and opening her presents.  She caught on quick to the idea of opening presents.  I think all kids like the sound of ripping paper. After all the presents were opened Daddy and her sat together and assembled her musical table.  This was a gift she picked out herself at the toy store.  She also got a number 1 hat that she had to model for us.

She was a little tired after the present opening so then it was time for a nap.  After nap time it was time for the traditional birthday cupcake.  This was her first very own cupcake to eat, destroy and smear everywhere and she didn't disappoint. When she was finished we headed directly for the bath to get cleaned up.  The rest of the day she had a blast playing with her musical table.  At the end of the day she was one tired and happy little girl and to her I think she had the best 1st birthday ever.

  1. glad to see you are back. You are right, if you don't write this stuff down as it happens, even if you KNOW you will NEVER forget. You do. It is normal. I have boxes of photos from when I was little that I have no idea even where we were living. My mom can tell what house it was but the year and if it was not Christmas or a birthday, she has no idea.
