My blog is now two years old. Oh, and so am I.

Happy Birthday!

We had a great party where lots of friends came over to play and my grandparents all visited.

Feliz Cumpleaños

Okay, so I’m not quite one year old yet (my birthday is on Thursday), but that didn’t stop us from partying a few days early! Some friends and relatives came over for a good time.

When it came time for me to eat cake for the first time everyone stared at me while I sat in my high chair. Maybe it made me a little nervous because I didn’t much feel like eating cake.

Well, today I gave the cake another try and this time I loved it!

Anyway, thanks so much to everyone, especially Mommy, for such a great birthday party! Can we have another one on Thursday?

Yesterday went to my great grandma’s house to celebrate her birthday. Nana is 83 now. I’m still zero.

Will visited his great grandma for her birthday

In addition to that, my cousins Caleb and Vivian who live in Texas were visiting too so I got to meet them for the first time.

We had so much fun playing together. Vivian had a box of Barbie band-aids that I just couldn’t put down.

First thing’s first. Happy birthday Mom!

Meli's birthday cake

We came home from the hospital today. The morning was a little hectic. They promised to get us out of there, but they were running behind. We had an appointment at the Dr’s office across town at 1pm and we didn’t get out of the hospital until nearly 1pm. Mommy was freaking out a little, but the hospital nurses were kind enough to call the Dr’s office for us to tell them we would be late.

The appointment went well and afterward I finally got to go to my new house. Grandma & Grandpa Raguet were waiting there for us and we all had a party for Mommy’s birthday.

We also had neighbors stop by. Some gave me some awesome clothes. Others brought flowers. Others gave us a gigantic balloon.

Finally, I got to sleep in my own bed.

It was exhausting.

They took blood to perform some tests, which didn’t bother me the slightest bit. Unfortunately, they also gave me a bath. I didn’t like that at all.
