Julianna turned one on Saturday. What a great day it was. She had been sick earlier in the week, but was much better by Saturday morning. We had all of our family over. Mom and Tom are here from Phoenix, so it was nice to be able to spend the day with them.
Jules loved every minute of her big day. She got some great gifts (though she seemed more interested in the tissue paper and boxes than the actual gifts), but I think her favorite gift was her very own baby doll from big sister Mary and a big plush duck from aunt Lauren! When Mary opened the baby doll for her, Jules proceeded to start drinking from the baby's sippy cup and trying out her pacifier to see if it worked. It was the cutest thing!! Mom and Dad's favorite gift is her new big girl car seat. We love it and have already put it to good use!!!
Drew made Julianna her very own cake. When we put it down in front of her, she looked at us like "is this really o.k." and then proceeded to dive right in. She loved it!!! It was great fun watching her eat it. All in all it was a great day. Happy birthday, my amazing beauty. You are the most wonderful thing I have ever done and not a day goes by that I won't tell you that and tell you how much I love you and am thankful for you!!!
