When I asked Madelyn what she wanted to do for her birthday party months ago she declared, “dinosaurs and pink (strawberry) ice cream cake.” Now that she’s older and has actual friendships I figured it was time we threw this girl her first birthday party – especially before this baby comes and rocks her world.
I’d like to point out that I haven’t thrown a party since I was in middle school, and it was a little traumatic, only three people showed up and it scarred me for life. But thanks to Pinterest I was able to combine her two favorite things for her birthday party – dinosaurs and the color pink.
ALL of her friends came (she’s more popular than me I guess), and she didn’t even slow down to eat all of the delicious food her Yia-Yia (grandma) and I prepared. In fact, note to self, next time only get half as much food. We were eating cold sandwiches and dinosaur cut PB&Js for a week afterward.
Shout out to Josh who also had a dinosaur themed birthday party when he was a kid, only it was a little less feminine. The older this kid gets the more she morphs into her father. They both have an infinite love for ketchup, and they both like to continually remind me to “chill my bones” *insert eye roll*. Not to mention their personalities seem to be carbon copies.
Happy Birthday to my sweet girl, can't wait to see what all "3" brings us.
