It’s been a year and the novelty hasn’t worn off yet.

I have a feeling it’s not going to, either.

We celebrated Felicity’s first birthday on Saturday, which was a little late. However, the only ones who minded were her brothers.

But I served hot dogs, mac and cheese, and a non-chocolate dessert and then they didn’t seem to mind at all.

The boys really enjoyed shopping for her. Although, I ended up having to steer them away from the princess crowns. I knew she’d never wear anything on her head.

And then she’d probably break it.

That’s the only reason.


I'll give you the princess butterfly wand.

Hey, I let them get the princess butterfly wand.

Here she is handing it to her brother. Aww, she knows how to share. We’re obviously doing something right.

But what are you going to do with the bunny?

But what is she doing with the bunny?

Mine! It's all mine!

Oh, I see. Removing it so she can have the stroller all to herself. That’s not very nice.

We’ll just put the bunny back.

What's this bunny doing in my stroller!

And she pulled it out again.

All to myself.

I think we should move on now.

more presents!

What could it be?

New dress!

A pink dress!

For me?

For me?


And new hairbows! How interesting.

Do i look nice?

Is that really what you’re supposed to do with them?

I'm not so sure about that.

I’m not so sure about that.

the loot!

Here she is still checking her head to make sure no one stuck any more bows in her hair. Because that would be terrible.

(They’re very cute bows though. You can find them at my friend’s shop here.)

Stay tuned for part 2: Cake! Will she eat it?

(Sorry for the tedium. No grandparents were present for the party and I figured you’d all understand.)

    Thanks, guys.

    So, I’m not imagining that gap-toothed grin? She certainly comes by it honestly. Which reminds me of something funny my grandma said. When she was born I told her that the boys kept exclaiming over how little she was, “She has such little ears!” and Grandma said, “Well, it’s a good thing she has little ears. Not too many in this family do.”

  8. Happy, happy, belated birthday Felicity!!! I love the pink dress! Too Cute!!!
