Time Travel Tuesday~ Birthday



This week we will travel back to either a special birthday you have been given or a memorable birthday you have had ...

Annie asks: How old were you? Was it a party, or just a memorable day?

I sat here trying the best to remember a special birthday in my life....and like many mothers, my life has taken second fiddle to my daughters. I find myself only recalling the most memorable birthday moment of all....Sugar Bears first birthday!

Some may know that I can dangerously close to never having the blessed opportunity to be a mom. Hubby didn't want children, and after nearly 8 years of marriage, I was honored with the most spiritually fulfilling surprise pregnancy. Our marriage went through some extremely difficult times, but we are coming out the other side. There are blue skies!

Keeping that in mind, you can understand my great joy at celebrating my baby girl's birth. I cherish each and every day with her, and know that my destiny was to be this little honey's mama. This is what I was made to do, and of this I have no doubt. A first birthday is always a pretty special one...but for me....it was a dream come true.


I produced a pretty relax family party for my girl. I wanted the attention on Sugar Bear...and the blessing that she is. I didn't want it to be about stuff, or themes or games. I wanted this picture of her sitting on the table with her presents and her cake, as there is one just like of me on my first birthday. I wish I had it here to share, but mine is at my parents house.


I, of course, wanted very much to cherish those special first cake moments. It is interesting to note that Sugar Bear may be the sweetest little creature on earth, but she doesn't have much of a sweet tooth. In fact, she ate barely a bit of her cake...but as you can plainly see....she loved the experience.








I remember sitting there watching her explore that cake, and thinking....how on earth did I ever get so blessed? Yes, if you haven't noticed...I am rather smitten with this girl. Life is GOOD! and it is only getting BETTER!

What a sweet little darling. My daughter just turned two! First birhtdays are so special! My daughter completely smashed her cake with hardly eating a bite either! She had the best expressions (just like your daughter:)!

SUGARbear doesn't like sweets? Isn't that like Fuzzy Wuzzy was a bear, Fuzzy Wuzzy had no hair, Fuzzy Wuzzy wasn't very fuzzy, was he?
