However, when everyone sat around singing Happy Birthday to my sweet girl, I couldn't utter a single word because I was sitting there with the biggest lump in my throat ever.
I am ridiculously proud of this little girl. I'm proud of every milestone she's hit. I'm proud of who she already is and of who she will become.
And as I sat there watching her stare wide eyed at all those people singing to her, I could only smile. She's so amazing. She really, really is.
True to my sort of dainty little girl's form, she wasn't sure what she thought of getting her hands dirty. Her Daddy had to put icing on his finger and let her try that before she would dig in on her own.
After eating a good bit of cake off Daddy's fingers and watching some of the other kiddos come pick at her cake, she decided to dig right on in. I'll let the pictures speak for themselves.
Needless to say, she got plenty of cake, and the sugar rush kept her going for hours!!
