After running around all day and asking myself why I went to so much trouble, I remembered that I love doing all this, even if I try to make a beautifull three layer cake from scratch and it is a disaster so I have to go buy one from the store. Because Isla helped me and was so excited about it. And to me, beautiful pictures make the best memories come to life again, and I want to remember things as vividly as possible, so yes, I will continue to make myself crazy. Mia was tired and wasn't very excited about cake, but she loved being outside in the beautiful weather and I was grateful so many came to help us celebrate.
She is still not walking yet, but is standing for a few seconds on her own and walking along furniture. She is a pro at going up and down stairs and loves to stick her tongue out, and is constantly smiling and laughing. I could not ask for a better or sweeter baby girl. Happy Birthday little one.
