Happy 1st Birthday to our Baby Girl!

A year ago today we welcomed our second-born, a beautiful baby girl, MP.


And now, I know it will sound cliche, but I can't believe that she is 1 year old!


We had family over to our house on Monday for dinner to help our Little Miss MP celebrate.  We decided to go with a Butterfly theme and had a great time.  Here is a glimpse at MP's 1st Butterfly Birthday Party:

Butterfly Birthday Party Invitation - Footprint Butterfly
We made butterfly birthday invitations by making butterflies
from two painted foot prints
Butterfly Birthday Party Decorations
We had butterflies hung throughout the house
with pictures of MP on them for decorations
Butterfly Birthday Cake
Here is MP's Chocolate Butterfly Cake made from
4 heart cakes and 4 cupcakes with candy decorations
MP had plenty of help opening her gifts
from her big brother and cousin 
She got into it too by carefully examining and opening everything
She also had fun testing out several of her toys such as her grocery cart,
first pink tractor, 
and baby doll bed.
After presents it was time to sing "Happy Birthday" and blow out her candle
and eat cake and homemade ice cream!
Happy 1st Birthday MP!
We Love You Very Much!

  6. Why Does This Feeling Help Baby Sleep? We've already talked about this, but it's important enough to say again. Babies, even in the womb, are extremely sensitive to emotions and feelings. Just like you, baby doesn't sleep well if she's not relaxed and feeling safe.

    Marijuana (cannabis) is known to be a fully benign drug. Reading the arguments made by weed proponents would appear to have beneficial effects only on cannabis. Ask every stoner in the sixties about his or her bad experiences and it is clear that marijuana does not always consist of rainbows and unicorns.
