Yes, Meerkat had her first birthday party, and it was a huge success!
I will be posting her monthly letter soon. Things have been hectic around here lately, due to having family in town for her birthday, and then the clean up and working that followed. So, anticipate that letter during this weekend.
In the meantime, enjoy some pictures from Meerkat's party:
I made Moo.se and Z.ee cupcakes and cake. The cupcakes turned out great, but the cake's feet fell off, and the antlers melted in the heat during transport and couldn't be attached. So, it was a sort of moose.
She didn't know what to do with the cake. She just poked at it awhile, and then put her hands in her hair. That was pretty much the extent of her cake eating. :)
She got lots of great presents, but she had more fun playing with the bows and making funny faces. :)
Three one year olds! My cousin's son, Meerkat, and my sister's son. :) So cute!!!
It was a busy time, but it was great. We all enjoyed the day, and Meerkat had a lovely birthday.
We are two, happily married teachers/writers journaling our journey to build our family through the adoption process.
We are unable to conceive a child due to infertility. Though painful, it has grown us closer together, strengthened our desire to build our family through adoption, and brought us our beautiful little girl. We are journaling the excitement, fears, ins and outs of our adoption process so that others can learn from our experience.
