My heart is full of love for this little one, growing so fast.
Her smiles all day brought me so much joy. Here are some moments I want to remember:
She kept repeating to her family-guests: "Thank you all for coming to my party!"
Just before we started to sing, she asked, "Is it okay if I sing to myself, too?"
She wished on candles that would NOT be lit on a lovely, but really breezy, 94-degree day. Wishing on unlit candles did not disappoint her. Later she simply asked me "So, when will my wish come true?" (It was for a stuffed Primrose, from Brambly Hedge.)
As we finally loaded the party supplies in the car to go home, she looked up at me and said, "Thank you for my happy birthday."
These two both celebrated first birthdays in June - and now they are clearly experts in the cupcake department.
My sweet Honey-Bee.
