Birthday Week...

...has commenced.

The banner is hung, purposeful activities have been planned, and the menu has been selected for this little food connoisseur. This is a big week because tomorrow marks the 6 month anniversary from when I first held Maeve, her actual birthday is on Monday, and her party is next Sunday. Hence, "Birthday Week".

Today included blueberry pancakes and watermelon -- a couple of Maeve's favorite foods, a visit by Nanny Annie, and some serious swing time at the park. And, if that weren't fun enough -- the evening proved to be even better. We were treated by the Wilson gang (sans Eli) for an Ethiopian dinner to celebrate Maeve's 1st birthday. Oh my... Maeve was sooooo happy to be the center of attention. She was giddy with excitement and couldn't stop smiling and laughing throughout the whole dinner. Life is good. And then, the fun continued onto the ice cream parlor where Maeve enjoyed her very first taste of vanilla ice cream. It was a hit.

I'd say it was a good start to the week... Happy Birthday Week, Maeve!

Ice cream and ET food are some of my favs, too, Maeve! Enjoy your birthday week and 6 months of being together!
