Here I go again posting photos of things that happened months ago. The kids are just so darn cute these days and I've been taking millions of photos of them daily, so it takes me forever to get through them all. I'm still plugging along on Mim's week-by-week photo baby book, which I really hoped I'd be finished with by now. I'm about 8 weeks out and it's nearing 400 pages. I think I have a problem.
Anyway, I finally got through all the photos from Mim's Flamingo First Birthday party back in July. We decided to go low-key for the party and just did cake and ice cream in the front yard. We invited family and a few friends with kids around Mim's age, but kept it really small and intimate. We set up a bubble machine and sidewalk chalk in the driveway and pulled out all the cars, toys and trikes. It was a thousand degrees that day and we all nearly melted in the summer sun. I have a feeling Mim's going to be getting a lifetime of pool parties for her future birthdays since it's such a miserably hot time of year. But we all survived and even managed to have a bit of fun. Mim loved being the center of attention, although she was very confused about what was going on for a good hour and insisted on being held. She LOVED her cupcake and was really excited to have all her favorite people in one place.
Happy first birthday (again...late), Mim!
