Birthday Bonanza! part 1

Whew! That was a busy week, people! As you all know already, Buggy turned 1. Lets all pause for a great big Awwwwww.


Okay, now that that's over its on to the fun part of the post. Pictures!

Wednesday was her birthday and we had a grand ole time. The hubster took the day off and we, along with my parents, took Buggy out for a birthday lunch. We dressed her up in her birthday finest (1 onesie, tutu and crown, heck ya!) and set off for a delicious lunch. We had a great time. Buggy really enjoyed talking to all the people around us and telling them all that she was 1 by holding her finger up and saying "Uhhn." Apparently she can say "one" who knew?

Afterwards, we came home for the much anticipated cake smash. She posed for a few pictures with mommy and daddy, played with the cat and daddy, and then we stripped her down for the cake smash.

Buggy literally loooooved the cake. I mean, ecstasy people. Pure ecstasy. She was basically in heaven. Also, my girl? Totally not afraid to get dirty. Gotta love that. We took her out into the yard (easy cleanup!) and plopped her down in my old (antique?) highchair, put the cake in front of her and just let her have at it. She did not disappoint.

Clean Baby meets cake

She faceplanted several times!
Oh, Gosh, Mom, this stuff is soooo good.

and giving Mommy birthday kisses

The end result

All in all, I'd say Buggy had a pretty spectacular first birthday. We had her party on Saturday, so stay tuned for that awesome recap.

Seriously people, I can't believe my baby is 1! If you still have an itty bitty, hug them tight tonight. Time goes way too fast to not cherish those baby moments.

Happy Birthday, Buggy!

Today is my little girls birthday! I can't believe a year has gone by already. I swear I just had her.

Buggy you have changed my life completely and for the better. I can't imagine life without you and I feel so honored to be your mom. I love you more than life itself and I can't wait to see you grow and see the girl you become. Everyday just keeps getting better.

While I may cry a bit today, I'm not sad you are growing up. I love the little girl you are becoming. I do miss the sweet snuggly baby you once were, but I wouldn't change our time together for anything. This past year has been the best year or my life and I'm so incredibly happy to have these beautiful memories for the rest of my life: bringing you home from the hospital and sleeping with you on my chest in the recliner for the first 3 weeks because I was too scared to put you down, watching you roll over for the first time and the shock that ran across your face, you sleeping in the pack n play beside me at Christmas while your lullaby CD floated throughout the house, you learning to crawl, talk, eat. All these memories will be cherished throughout my life, and I feel so blessed to have experienced them with you.

Buggy I hope you have the best 1st birthday ever. I know we don't have much, but what we do have is love, and we have an abundance of that.

Happy birthday baby girl!

Happy Father's Day!

The Mommy Logs would like to wish a Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there! I hope that today is a wonderful day with your families.

And to Buggy's daddy, I love you and thank you for all that you do for Buggy and me. Thank you for taking the time to play with Buggy and for all the work you are doing on our new house. We love you more than anything and can't imagine our lives without you. Heck, Buggy wouldn't be here if it weren't for you, and that is what I am most thankful for today.

Thank you Hubster.
Happy Father's Day.

5 days until Buggy is a toddler


Seriously people, I can't believe that in 5 days I will have a toddler

5 days!

Where has this past year gone? I look at my little girl and can't believe that she's been here for a year, and yet, it also feels like she's always been here. I can't imagine what my life would be like without her, and can barely remember life before her. It's like she's always been a part of me (which I guess biologically speaking, a part of her HAS) and yet, she's only been on this earth for a year.

So in honor of the BEST YEAR OF MY LIFE, I present a glimpse of vintage Buggy:

Yup, thats the little Bugster fresh out of Mommy. Gosh, I can't stand it. She was so leetle! My how she's grown.
And you know what? I wouldn't trade anything for this amazing year we've had. Seriously, best year of my life.
