Happy Birthday Norah!

My baby turned one, and to celebrate we had a big party. I joked with one party-goer that the first birthday party was absolutely essential, not because Norah would ever remember the event, but because I needed to celebrate the fact that we made it a year and we're all still alive and well. In fact, we're more than just alive and well, we couldn't be better! Norah has brought an unimaginable amount of joy into our lives and despite the sleepless nights, the tears and the meltdowns (mine and hers) we wouldn't change a thing. Being a mom is the best thing I've ever done.

So, enough about me ... here are some party pictures!

Don't be deceived, this is the only bite she took. The rest, she destroyed. Lesson learned, an expensive and delicious cake from The Chocolate should be served to adults who will enjoy the goodness.

Norah was with me when I purchased this gift. When we got home from the store she kept pointing to the box and asking "please?" So at her party when she pulled the paper off and saw what it was, she was ecstatic!
