her first official birthday breakfast in bed

Glow's 1st breakfast in bedGlow's 1st breakfast in bedGlow's 1st breakfast in bedGlow's 1st breakfast in bedGlow's 1st breakfast in bedGlow's 1st breakfast in bedGlow's 1st breakfast in bedTechnically, Glow has been having breakfast in bed everyday since the day she was born (from mama), but this was her first “official” breakfast in bed. She got the works… her first glass of milk, O’s, and a banana. Her big sisters also filled her tray with a stack of homemade cards and mommy and papi got her a Rody (from here), but it seems like it’s her sisters who has taken a liking to the blown up horse. Really though, who do you expect to win when there is a banana in front of her?! A banana will always win.

I can’t believe it has already been a year! It really does feel like just yesterday that we took her home from the hospital. I remember how our families were anxiously waiting to find out if we were having a boy or girl (we already knew but didn’t tell) and the name. We were anxiously waiting for her birth because this was the first time I was going to do it sans the drugs. It’s been an amazing year and we are so thankful to God for giving her to us. She is a delightful little girl and our days have definitely been brighter with her in them.

We had a simple, but fun adventure planned and I will share that next week. We love our little Glow and we are so glad to be able to celebrate the 366 days God has given her thus far!

P.S. If you want to read her birth story, I did HypnoBirthing,Β you can read it here.

    Happy Birthday to your baby baby! And my 1 year old is the same way. Banana terminator, have no idea where he puts it since he’s so skinny. He could eat that for breakfast lunch and dinner. You sure this milestone doesn’t make you want to go for #5? πŸ˜‰

    Glow is already one? what? I still remember your last bump like it was yesterday!

  • Lis says:

    Lovely! Happy birthday little girl! Love the birthday tradition too.

  • That is really sweet that she got to experience what she’s seen the rest of your family do throughout the year for one another on your birthdays. I hope she realizes how loved and special she is, but one is that “huh?? birthday? whatever!” type of things that go over their heads. I love how her sisters are all excited for her!

    Oh my word! So…I read your blog and wonder how two people who have never met could have so much in common (though right now I only have 2 girls)?!?! I just pinned that Rody to make sure I remembered to get it for the girls for Christmas!!! πŸ™‚

  • Miu says:
