Better Late than Never....I guess!

I'm making some new goals for myself.....I need to start fricken writing again.  I miss it but I just can't seem to get myself to type the words!  So....I'm going to start small and make this post mostly photos....but they are of Mee's first birthday so all is good!

The munchkin's birthday was on a Thursday (at the beginning of this month....hence the better late than never!) so Justin and I had our parents over for dinner and cake.  I made a f'in DELICIOUS meal!!!  We had a little flank steak topped with a garlic tomato mixture, roasted red potatos, asparagus and mushrooms and some good crusty bread! was amazing! 

First Birthday Family Photo!

A Girl and her Daddy!
Her Barbie Cake before the Barbie masacre of Twenty Ten!
And here we go!
She was a MESS!!! 

As was our table!!  That shit took us about 20 minutes to clean. 
So that was her actual birthday. Her big party was planned for Saturday. Well....Mia's dumb ass mom decided to make her one year check up appointment for Friday and we all know that that means shots. my lovely kid who has never had a problem with shots before decided to have a bad reaction to them and woke up late Friday night covered in her barf. Which ended up as a long ass night for mom and Mees. I felt HORRIBLE!  So needless to say she was absolutely miserable for her first birthday party.  My mom kept telling me that she wouldn't remember and blah blah blah.....well mom....I'll fuckin remember and I was devastated.  She's only going to get ONE first birthday party and I f'd it all up! 
She did have a couple of good moments....more shitty ones that good though!
Her Giant cupcake cake that Grandma made for her that mommy and daddy ended up eating the shit out of!

One of many melt downs!

Tractor ride with daddy!

And we are spent....chillin with Antie B.

So there we have Miss Mia's first birthday festivities in a nut shell.  Hopefully next year we can enjoy it all!

Today....You are ONE!

One year ago today you came into this world and changed my life forever!  You gave me meaning and purpose, you opened up this whole other part of my heart that I didn't know was there.  You made me realize that you are the reason that I'm here. 
This last month has been crazy....crazy busy and...well...just plain crazy:
* You have already started throwing little mini temper are completely over dramatic....not quite sure where you get that from!!( I will take full responsibility but that will be our secret!). 
*  You have taken a few steps by yourself.  We try to help you and you want nothing to do with us.  You obviously want to do it on your own.  One day soon you are just going to take off....for now though you are a fast little shit and get to where you need to go by crawling. 
*  It's funny because you are so independent when it comes to certain things and certain situations yet you are completely attached to my ass the other part of the time.  You are fine with other people as long as you don't see me or know I'm there.  This has made mommy's left arm muscle very disproportionate to the rest of her body!
*  You LOVE being outside!  You love to swing on the swings over at Antie's and would spend all your time out there if we let you.
*  You are a total chatter box.  Your new word is baboo for bottle.  You got that from Belle Boo....that's what she calls her bottle.  You are starting to recognize words and what they are related too. 
*  You are still obsessed with the phone and are constantly "talking" on it. 
*  You have graduated to your big girl car seat....we switched them out this last weekend.  It makes me a little sad but it's nice not breaking my back everyday lugging that damn carrier around!
*  We are trying to get you to drink out of your sippys more but you are still a total bottle baby....when you do drink out of them you usually make a game of it and spit your shit everywhere!
*  You follow your uncle Joey around EVERYWHERE.
*  You destroy most everything!
*  You are a dancing fool....can't wait til we can get you into dance class! 
*  You are a total diva and have absolutely ZERO patience. idea where that shit comes from!
*  You can make me smile one minute and make me want to rip out every hair on my head the next!
*  You have a horrible this moment you are screaming and flinging yourself into the if the ottoman did something horrible to you!  It did nothing to you!
*  You weigh 21.2 pounds and are 28 1/4 inches long which puts you in the 50th percentile for both....your head is another story....apparently you are in the 90th percentile for your big ass head.  I don't think you have a big head....and if you do it's only because you are already a genius!!

This last year has been amazing!  It's been the best most hardest year of my life and I wouldn't change it for the world.  You have brought me more joy than I could have ever imagined.
Happy First Birthday Mia Lou!  We love you more than you could ever know!
