My little baby is ONE!

I can't believe my baby Georgia Kate is already one. I am a little behind on this post, but better late than never...right? I have been waiting for this day for a while now. I LOVE birthdays and hope that I can pass on all the fun traditions that my mom did for me. My mom always made sure that a birthday was special and for that matter still does the same today. We always had the perfect outfit to wear on your big day, We always started our day with our breakfast of choice that usually had a candle in it, and as we got older we were even greeted with a balloon in the toilet! I know it sounds crazy, but my mom loved birthdays and has passed that on to me.

So...I was totally prepared to make this day the best day ever for Georgia Kate. She was woken up with me singing "Happy Birthday", which I am sure made her want to go right back to sleep. The we got dressed in our precious Birthday Girl tshirt. Of course I snapped a few pics of the birthday girl on her big day. Before we went to Annie's house we stopped at Dunkin Donuts for a pink, strawberry donut. GK wasn't a huge fan of the donut, but she ate half of it and then shared the rest with Annie. What a sweet thing for the birthday girl to do.

After I picked up GK from school we had to head to the doctor for our 12 month visit. I know I am a mean mom! OH well...we got it over with and moved on. I was glad that I did it when I did because Robert was out of town and we weren't doing anything major anyway! After the doctor we went to Target to pick out a new toy. She picked out a purse with all the fun stuff in it. Well...I guess mommy picked it out. GK loves it though!

Then we headed over to Granmarie's house and yes on the way GK started THROWING UP! IT was horrible. I was so sad for her I wanted to cry, but I kept it together and we got to Granmarie's house cleaned up and then got ready for another one. So we did this on and off all night. Finally we went to sleep and slept through the night. Poor baby was so sick. It took her a good 24 hours to get over it.

So...despite the tummy bug we had a blast on first birthday! More pics of the party to come soon.

These are the balloons that Aunt MB and Uncle Clint gave GK for her birthday!

This is when she wasn't feeling great
