Mikaela's Birthday

So Mikaela's birthday was last week. I can't believe that my little baby girl is 1 already! It seems like only yesterday that she looked like this:

Ok... that one is more sad... but she looks prettier!

So anyways.... I can't believe how much she has changed! And I cant believe how much she has learned! Wanna see some milestones?

The cake.... I made her a personal cake and everyone else cupcakes. I webcam broadcasted the cake so that Owen and our families could watch. I also called everyone who wanted to sing her happy birthday and put them all on speakerphone so we could all sing together!

Birthday cake madness!

Then came the presents! There wasnt much... I had to spend most of her birthday money on food... the army shortchanged us again... so when we get paid she will be getting more presents.... but here is what she did get!

A completely soft pink haired babydoll was first.

Then one of those ring stacker toys came next! She still had cake on her eye! I just noticed that!

Then last but not least:

It is a penguin! It plays music and makes happy noises... and it rocks back and fourth... she can beat it around all she wants... and it almost always pops right back up! So cute!

So that was Mikaela's birthday!
