Earlier in the week, I shared photos from my nephew’s birthday party last Saturday. On Sunday, we attended another first birthday. That’s right – Felicity’s best friend, Maddie, turned one too! And her mom pulled out all the stops for the most perfect and precious mermaid themed party. It seriously looked like something straight out of a magazine. From the moment I walked in the door, I knew it was going to be a spectacular party…and it started with a huge smile from the birthday girl herself. Since Felicity was still snoozing in the car, I had a few minutes alone with Mermaid Maddie. She must have known the day was all about her – she lit up the room. Before the other guests arrived, I took a few minutes to capture party details and a family “portrait.” Don’t they all look so happy? As the party animals started to arrive, Maddie decided to cut loose. She was having a blast rolling around on the floor and showing off her latest tricks. Maddie is definitely the outgoing one between her and Felicity – I’m hoping some of those social skills will rub off. Meanwhile, I’m sure Michelle hopes that a little bit of Felicity’s “stranger danger” rubs off on Maddie. That child does not know a stranger. Although this stranger is her grandfather. Apparently, party balloons taste good. HA HA Felicity was glad to have her daddy at the party. You only thought she was tight with her mama…she loves her daddy just as much. Maddie also likes Felicity’s daddy – they both wanted to be held. After a while, it was time to sing “Happy Birthday.” Maddie loved being the center of attention. Of course she wasted no time getting into her own special cupcake. She thought it was DELICIOUS! Yummy!
All that said, we had a fantastic time at Maddie’s birthday and can’t wait to see where the years will take us. Happy Birthday Madeline!
Mermaid Maddie Turns ONE!
