num, num, num

1. Maggie turned 1. (I know. You so already knew that.)


2. She devoured cake. Twice. (Once on her birthday, once at her family party yesterday.)


3. She likes to make "num, num, num" noises when she eats something she loves. Triple cute.


4. As you'll see in the video below, Maggie parroted me — all while keeping her eyes on the crumbs at hand. Four the love.


5. I've watched this video way more than five times. 





Want more pics of the party and its girl? Oh, OK. If you insist.


My only regret is that we didn't get pictures of all the party-goers! Lame and a half. How to the ever ... we love you all. (Why, yes, I did just say how to the ever.)

This is the cake sister-in-law, Amy, and I made together. Cute, right?
Also, I pretty much can't say enough amazing things about Amy. But I'll try anyway ...
I love her. She's whip smart in the kitchen. I love her. She makes me smile. I love her. She's generous (with time and talents). Oh, and I love her.

We made a big cake for the adults, a baby cake for my baby, and little meringue sandwiches to snack on.

When your new soccer ball looks like a ladybug, it gets kisses.
(Also, this picture is proof Mags had clothes on for at least part of the party.)

Tissue = Maggie's favorite present.

Hands just slow you down.

"What have I done?"

"Saved some for later, that's what."

Oh, what a cute little girl you have! First birthdays are by far my favorite. Happy Birthday, Maggie!

[Sam and I will be up there this summer - Ryan and Maggie can have their first real play date. :) ]

I'm so sad I missed this due to my own procrastination - I'm not being a very good honorary aunt!

But that is one adorable baby (nice work on the cake, by the way).
