Well, Delilah's first birthday has come and gone. It was such a huge success. I'm going to estimate and say we had over 40 people show up to celebrate her special day. The decorations turned out great, and my mom was a HUGE help in getting everything ready and set up. I had a photographer there, and am waiting to see pics from the party. I hardly had time to take any myself, I was so busy visiting with everyone! Delilah relished the attention (when people gave her time to warm up), and was a great sport the whole time. She's such a happy sweet baby.
A couple people showed up that I wasn't too pleased to see, but I knew they'd be there. A couple people weren't able to come that I'd like to see, but that's ok. One of my family members was invited out of courtesy, but I knew she wouldn't come. I'm not surprised. Didn't come to my birthday celebrations, didn't expect her to come to my beautiful baby's! No worries, it's the last time I'll invite her to something. Waste of my AWESOME invitations...and I'll post them now (with some of the private information blocked out)
|Shout out to ART IS DUMB (on facebook) for making the invitations!|
It was a super fun time, and I'm so glad we were in Missouri to celebrate!
Spent that evening with friends playing the game of things and being silly. We always crack up playing, and I miss that! Landon and Chip played a new pool game with weird rules and ended up dressing up with a basket and the pool table cover. hahaha it was great.
We went out for breakfast at the Big Biscuit in Independence the next day with Falco, Nessers, Dayly, Chip, Chelsea, and my brother. Landon joined us later. We drove around and went shopping, got coffee, and ended the night with dinner at Chipotle! YUM.
Delilah did amazing on the plane rides. She didn't cry, didn't fuss, she was a great little passenger. I was actually pretty thankful that I still nurse her, because I did so on takeoff and I think that helped her ears not to pop.
I am super excited to move back to KC for awhile. It feels more real now, and I've started to pack up the house! I'm ready to put this place in my rear view mirror!
As soon as I get pictures from the photographer, I'll post them!
