Well, the day finally came. Your first birthday party! I wanted your first birthday celebration to be special so mommy and daddy combined it with Thanksgiving. We had family and friends so up for the huge celebration. Emma you did great, although you missed your afternoon nap, you didn’t fuss at all. I guess you knew that all these people were here for you.
Let’s take a look at the day; First we decided to let you sleep in, after all it is your special day
