1 Year Old Today!

It's late and I'm exhausted from a fun-filled birthday for the girls! Jeremy and I are in shock that it has been a year. Some days it feels like we can't even remember our lives before these girls, the last year has gone by so quickly. We are having a party on Saturday, but I wanted to have some fun today, even though some people told me it didn't matter because they wouldn't remember it, but these first few birthdays are really for me anyway, right???

Anyway, after today, I've decided that the world would be a more peaceful place if we all celebrated our birthdays with 3 of our favorite meals, 3 hours of naps and ice cream at the end of the day. Enjoy the pictures....stay tuned for party pics!
Our favorite breakfast to start the day--Pancakes & Blueberries...
A Birthday Walk...
A perfect nap...
*Yes, I realize this picture contradicts my last blog...maybe she knew we were on our way for ice cream.

Great pictures, looks like they enjoyed the ice cream! I can't believe how big they are getting, it's so exciting and I'm glad you all were able to celebrate today and enjoy the day together. They will definitely have memories and good feelings from today, even if they can't recall them down the road.

Girls! What a momentous day! you turned one AND you had ice cream (and from the pictures, it looked like you REALLY enjoyed them!) My favorite pictures of one the girls at towards the end of the ice cream cone holding the cone :)
Girls- enjoy your birthday month.
Aimee and Jeremy- congrats on raising such beautiful daughters. I know they will continue to teach you new things including the simple pleasures in life.

Happy beautiful to my brilliant and beautiful nieces!!! Addy and Lilly, what a year - you little girls are so amazing and you have come so far. I have to say you girls don't seem to be quite as covered in blueberry juice as you did when I saw you last!!! I am so proud of you two and feel so privileged to be your aunt:) You little people bring so much joy and happiness to everyone around you with your sweetness and incredible sense of fashion. Let me tell you, not very many people can pull of the pajama in the stroller look but I have to say you girls work those pjs like you are on your way to fashion week! Have a fabulous splash party!! I love you so much and think about you all the time:)
