Addison's 1st Birthday-2-15-2011

Our little bit turned 1 year old! I still can't believe it! I have a post about her and all she has been doing lately, but I wanted to share about her special day.

It didn't turn out the way I had planned and dreamed. We spent the majority of her big day at my grandfather's funeral. But we did start the morning out with a little something special for her.

We were at my parents' house since we were having the funeral that day, so one good thing was that they got to see her on her birthday. I made "birthday muffins" (a family tradition) for her that morning. These are just blueberry/strawberry muffins with a candle.

Addison was serenaded with the birthday song by everyone. She wasn't sure what to do with the candle, so big sister Audrey helped blow it out for her. Once the candle was out, Addison snatched the whole muffin up and stuffed it into her mouth. Everyone got a kick out of that.

Addison also got to open a little gift on her big day. (With a little help from Audrey, of course).
It was a special day, filled with many mixed emotions.

We love you, Little Bit! Happy 1st Birthday!

What a beautiful day to celebrate not one, but two birthdays. Her first in this big beautiful world and Poppa Dozier first days in the most awesome place in our souls.
