Today is Savannah's official birthday. We celebrated a day early since her actual birthday is on a Sunday. I can not believe a year has already flown by... she is getting so big so fast.
Being a Mom has truly changed me. I babysat and nannied for many families growing up, I took multiple child development classes, and I also worked in a preschool... but nothing prepares you for motherhood, nothing prepares you for the real thing. Nothing prepares your for the unconditional love you feel for your child and for the new responsibility you have in your life.
When I became Savannah's mom, my role in the world completely changed-- I wasn't just the same ole me going to school and working on a new improved version of myself. I was a mother, really and truly forever! I am so grateful to be a Mother... especially Savannah's mother!
Anyways... lets get to the good stuff... Savannah' party!!
She sure loves those balloons!
We had a hot chocolate bar.
Getting ready the morning of her party. She had no idea what was going on but was all smiles!
We also had subs, chips, fruit, and cupcakes!
She got so many fun presents!
She loved the whole eat the cake part. She was more then willing to share as well. ;)
Later on after everyone had left we were cleaning up and Savannah had gone over to her highchair. Some cake crumbs and icing had fallen on the seat and she was trying to eat every last bit. Haha - I think I have a girl who loves sugar like her mamma!
Daddy and I love you Savannah! Happy 1st Birthday!
