March 31- Today was M's first birthday! We celebrated in several ways. First, she and Ada came to coffee break to have a birthday with my co-workers. Its a bit of a family tradition, I had a first birthday at coffee, E had a first birthday there, and now Miss M. She had a great time making faces at my co-workers and showing off her babbling and smiling.
After work, we all went to the Nitty Gritty for M's first birthday mug, she got a sippy cup sized one! We had a nice dinner, and M tried her first ever chicken finger (it was a hit). She loved playing with the ice in dada's cup, and she and Ama and Ada had some nice moments. When we got home, she opened her gifts from us, E chose a bubble lawnmower for her sister, and she couldn't wait for her to open it, I'm sure M will love it when it gets a bit nicer. We got her a little people zoo train, which has also been a hit.
March 30- Today we had a birthday party for M with Ama, Ada, Grandma, Grandpa, Uncle Bob, Aunt Norma, and Great Gramma. We had an afternoon party, with some snacks, juice and cake. M had her first bites of wheat, and really sugar. She was interested in them, but didn't mash her face full of cake, she took a few tastes, poked it at, and then tried to drop it on the floor. She had a great time being the center of everyone's attention, and even danced for them (her signature one foot pivot move)
