Maggie's 1st Birthday (round 1)
Maggie's first birthday had multiple celebrations because I had to travel for work the week of her birthday. As much as it killed me to be away from her on her actual birthday, we were able to make the most of the situation by taking a family trip south where Maggie got to meet several relatives for the first time prior to my work thing.
Unfortunately, we were not great about taking photos with the various family members she met. But we did get some great photos from her first birthday celebration which was a few days before her actual first birthday.
Curious George seemed fitting because we always call Maggie our little monkey. Whenever I watch the cartoon, I think they must have based the sounds Curious George makes on a 1 year old. Her gestures and sounds are so much like his!
Maggie liked the cupcake, flipping it upside down and eating the cake first. Then she got into the frosting and probably ate too much of that (it was a rough night of many wakeup calls for mom and dad).
Needless to say, we did not let her eat more than a bite of frosting at subsequent birthday parties.
