WELL. It happened.
And I tried so hard you guys. I did everything in my power. And it still happened. I am not okay with this for the following reasons:
- The older she gets, the bigger she gets. And the bigger she gets, the less she will let me hold her. And ALL I want to do is be able to hold her forever. Luckily, I am a pretty big lady so fingers crossed she will let me.
- Also, the older she gets, the less it is acceptable for me to bite her thighs, kiss the bottoms of her feet and nuzzle my entire face into her neck to the point where she is upset at me.
- Basically there is nothing good about her getting older.
On the day of her actual birth, we had a low-key family day.
I started it off with a rather dramatic cry. It just came out of me. Probably didn’t help that I listened to “Goodnight my Angel” by Billy Joel while I gave her a bottle.
Then I took her 1-year pictures in the chair and she was being so cute and funny.
Then, we got ready for her birthday outing! An afternoon at the Wiggle Room (a softplay center for babies).
And the next day, we threw her a birthday party. We did a Nutcracker/Land of Sweets theme and boy did Nancy go to town on the decorations! Clara is pretty lucky to have a Nana like her.
So adorable, yes?
I made her smash cake, which never got smashed.
I even bought an organic cake mix and used this bougie canned frosting that was like $6.99.
I am such a good mom, I know.
Clara Jane was just the sweetest she could be.
It was the best time ever.
We love this human so much. She has completely changed our lives and spreads the love where ever she goes. Happy birthday to our CJ!
