Millie turned one last Friday, and it was extra special this year as she was one on 11-11-11, so fun!
She had a wonderful birthday, and was in good spirits the whole day. Dave and I had a blast with her. During the day we took her to the mall to see the puppies at the pet store. Millie absolutely adores dogs. She was very confused when we first went into the store, but once she realized there were dogs inside we couldn’t contain her. She could hardly contain herself as well. She would make loud urgent screaming noises, making people think that she was afraid of the animals, when in fact she was so happy she was squealing.
After seeing the puppies, we stopped for lunch and took Millie to play in the Kid Zone for a bit.
In the evening, we had a birthday party with family. Millie was confused by the whole thing, but she did seem to enjoy seeing everyone. She loved being sung to. She scarfed her cake, and with a lot of help she unwrapped her gifts.
My favorite part of the party preparations was pulling out my old cake decorating skills, and making Millie her 1st birthday cake. I made it to look like her much coveted “taggy blanket” (which you can see featured in the lower left photo). I had a great time making the cake, and the best part was it only took like 30 minutes.
This picture pretty much sums up how Millie felt about the whole day. YAY!
Thanks to everyone who came. We love you all, and are so happy that you are part of Millie’s life.
