Our weekend was GREAT! Thank you SO much to everyone who made it to the party! It was SO fun to celebrate with you all!
Lacy's baptism went well! Unfortunately, I don't have a picture of that:-( I was trying to take it with Annabelle in my hands and my hand kept slipping so my picture is of like her arm as she was getting done. My mother-in-law did get a video though, so I hope to get a "still" from that eventually. *sigh*
Dedication was great as well! Annabelle got a standing ovation:-) Mommy couldn't help but smile... I'd waited for that day for a VERY VERY long time, a YEAR to be exact! I've given Annabelle to God many, many times over the last year, but to be able to formally, publicly do it, it made this Momma's heart feel good!
Unfortunately, we forgot an extra O2 tank, so Scott left right after the dedication to take her home, which is fine because we wanted her to get a good nap before the party anyway!
The princess's party was SO much fun! I'll let the pictures show for themselves!
Annabelle began the party on the floor playing with her book... welcoming everyone to the palace! (notice... she has a very cute bow on... it fell off and somehow never got put back on, whoops!)
The whole cake table...
The princess and her special cake... she played a little with the frosting, and liked her #1 candle!!!
Presents!!!! Annabelle LOVED all her presents!
Princess Annabelle, her presents, and her binky.
Traded her tiara for a birthday hat:-)
She loved opening presents! Actually, she had a few "special" friends that helped her open... but she did a good job at playing with them all! Even her clothes she liked to look at! (She really did!!! She would feel them with her fingers and examine them, it was SO SO SO CUTE!)
The princess and her wand! (Thanks, Miss Brittney, for the wand!)
It's Party time! Dancing Annabelle! I think she's doing the cha-cha here...
And here is Mommy holding the tuckered out princess. It was a LONG day, but fun!
And for those worried about a big party for my little love... her doctor actually said it was good to have a party NOW... vs in a few months in the midst of cold/flu season!
In other news... clinic yesterday went well. Labs were off a little bit, so more medicine changes (*sigh* adding one more back) but we hope this is just a temporary thing. And we had her PT evaluation today, and they are recommending 2 times per week therapy. *sigh* She needs this... but it is twice a week to Nashville, on top of clinic, on top of potentially Occupational therapy (we get that evaluation next week.) Oh, and eventually on top of Speech therapy (we hope this will be in-home though!)
TOMORROW is the princess's ACTUAL birthday. We will have a mini-celebration tomorrow for her just with our immediate family:-)
Again, thank you SO SO SO much for all who celebrated with us, in person or in spirit!
