We had Addison's 1st Birthday Party with Friends on
August 1st at 2p.m
At the Collierville Water Park-she loves running through the water and having me or Bryan run her through it
It happened to be one of the hottest days that we have had this year-reaching 112 heat index! My Dad told me that he thought we were all nuts for being out in it. But everyone came to it and as long as they were playing in the water-it really didn't seem that miserable. My Dad watched Addison during the morning so my Mom-Me and Bryan could get everything ready. He did not want to bring her to us because she was sleeping-but since it was her birthday party he didn't seem to have a choice (thanks Dad!). She was asleep when she arrived so we left her in the airconditioning as long as we could-then got her out-sang Happy Birthday & let her have her cupcake! She was a little on the moody side-see no smiles until she hit that water! haha-But as a Mother I was so extremely proud of how she handled her cupcake! She LOVED it! She took the left hand full of icing and the right hand full of cake smashed it between her fingers and ate the entire thing! It was wild. She loved the cupcake-had it all over her-in her hair-on her dress (tried to eat more icing off of her dress!). She was a mess! My Mother is such a huge help for us-she arrived at the park at 11:30 to make sure we had a table in the shade for the event. She got the last table! Thank goodness. Mom also helped out with Addison-the gifts-picked up the cake-not sure how I would have made it through without her. Addison slept all the way home & ended up going to bed a little early that night. It was such a great Birthday Party with lots of good friends. Our family birthday party is coming up right after her real birthday on Friday. Mommy & Daddy got her a big red wagon with all the bells & whistles. But we are giving it to her on Friday because I don't believe in not getting a present on your actual birthday. Bryan asked me tonight if I wasn't sure that we missed a few months back because there was no way that she could already be 1. It is just amazing the amount of love that goes into caring for a child-Motherhood has been great to me and Addison is such a good baby. More updates to come.....
