A little birthday
Miss Poppy turned one this weekend! We were so excited to make it special for her... Soren has been talking about her birthday for weeks. He really wanted me to bake her a 'baby doll' cake, but I think he was happy with the strawberry banana pancakes I whipped up on sunday morning. We are having a small family party for her next weekend, as my sister (and parents) were away in Chicago this weekend. A little thing called the Chicago Marathon managed to trump Pop's first birthday... :)
While no big parties were thrown in her honour, we did our best to make her feel special. Starting with a happy birthday song and candle in her pancake, and spending lots of time doing her favourite things. Which would include lots of playgrounds, jumping on the bed, climbing stairs, and eating. And I can't forget walking! A few weeks before her first birthday Poppy started to take some tentative steps, and she's now walking all over the place. In the cutest wobbly steps, with her hands out in the air for balance.
It's hard to believe that last year we were meeting her for the first time. She's completed our family in such a wonderful way, and gets sweeter every day. We love you Poppy Olivia.
