We started Madeline’s special day with a chorus of Happy Birthday. She enjoyed waking up to both of her parents singing just for her as music is one of her favorite things these days. I think she knew something was up when she saw the streamers hung in the living room and her breakfast all ready sitting on her tray. Usually she has to beg for half an hour to get some morning grub. And it’s never been waffles with strawberries and whipped cream. Yum.
After that we cleaned the house, packed our bags and headed out on a road trip that ended up taking an extra three hours thanks to DC holiday traffic. Nothing says happy first birthday like being strapped in a car-seat for eight hours.
Finally we made it to my Aunt and Uncles house where we shared in all the Thanksgiving festivities. My cousin made the cutest little cake for Madeline and they had some presents all wrapped for her. They really outdid themselves in more ways that one. It was the perfect way to help her go to bed feeling loved.
Happy Birthday sweet girl. We love you so much!
