There are many joys in life and each one is different. Christmas, seeing old friends, vacations… but today I experienced a new joy I’ve not had before… seeing my daughter enjoy her birthday. I know many people have experienced their kids birthday’s before, but this one was the first time Lexi was old enough to have an idea of what was going on, and thus my first time as a parent watching her enjoy a day… all in celebration of her. I can only imagine what next year will be like, or seeing her on Christmas… 🙂 I get warm fuzzies just thinking about it. Anyway… I thought you’d enjoy seeing some shots from Lexi’s Birthday today.
Can you tell she is excited?!
On our way to the Meijer Gardens… we had hoped to go to the beach, but Michigan’s warm weather seems to be unemployed as well. : /
She found this tea set at the MG, and fell in love with it.
When she really gets into things, she sticks her tongue out. Soo cute. 🙂
LOVE THIS SHOT!!!!!! I so love my little girl. She needs to slow down and not grow up so fast!
Lexi with my dad…
And now with both my parents.
Family picture… I look like a dork.
Taking a break with her daddy… : )
After her nap… time to open some more presents!
Amy’s Parents gave her some birthday money which we spent on her own tea set. She loved it! Our Friend’s the Hidalgo’s came over to share some of the fun (and some cake) with us.
She had been waiting for cake all day. It was the first thing she said when I got her out of her crib this morning. “I’m going to have cake!” – I think the candle’s threw her for a loop here though. he he…
“Where’s my cake?
Satisfied at last…
Happy Birthday my sweet little girl!
