I set up a little play date at the indoor pool with all of my mommy friends while Eric worked that day. A bunch of us had babies within weeks/months of each other so it's always a good time to get the babies together! I was the first one to the pool at 1pm (which is when they used to open) when they tell me it doesn't open until 3pm. THREE PM! Ugh! I definitely learned my lesson and I will always double check times, ha ha! So we went back home and a couple friends stopped by and Mia loved seeing them and her little friends! I was going to take her at 3 (because she loves to swim) but she fell asleep so of course, nap time won!
I was super bummed that the pool didn't work out, so Eric and I decided we would take Mia to Frozen when he got home from work! Well, Eric got held up at work and didn't leave until dinner time :( I was so bummed (even though Mia totally didn't know better, or care!) that nothing was working out so I had Eric pick up dinner from a local BBQ place to eat my feelings away (ha ha)! Best decision ever! We have never seen Mia chow down on food as quickly as she did that night. She shoved it in so quickly and the whole time she was saying, "Mmmmm, ummmm, MMMMMM" as she chewed, ha ha! Best birthday dinner ever!
My poor, little wreck of a baby. I didn't even get her dressed or comb her hair all day because I was going to get her dolled up after swimming. I'm tellin' ya, nothing glamorous about her big day!Then we let Mia open 2 presents after dinner (so she could have some fun without being completely overwhelmed with all the gifts she would get the next day at her party) and once again, best decision ever! Mia totally didn't understand the unwrapping process (she thought the gift bag was a purse and she tried carrying it around instead of opening it, ha!) so it was fun to see her surprise when she found out there was a surprise under the wrap!
We let Mia stay up a little past her bedtime and just played! She was in heaven. So I think her day turned out pretty awesome in that little head of hers :) But don't worry, the next day was definitely the best day of celebrating Mia's first year of life!
