Mia's Big Day!!!

Mia has had quite the week. She had her birthday on Monday, learning to walk on Tuesday, her first Halloween on Wednesday, her big party on Saturday and friends over on Sunday-- needless to say, she (as well as mommy and daddy) is pooped. We had her big Birthday/ Welcome Home Party on Saturday afternoon. We never did a baby shower for Mia because it was summer and everyone was so busy so we decided to make it a combo party-- Birthday and Welcome Home! Mia looked as cute as can be and we had about 95 of our closest friends and family over to our house for the party. It was the biggest party we ever had at our house. There were a TON of people but we had a wonderful time. I seriously could not have put this party on without my wonderful husband Kevin but also Laila, my mom, my brother (who is a chef and cooked) and Cassie (my sister). It was a HUGE production complete with a jumpy, a craft, a ton of food and lots of friends and family. Mia loved the cake and dug right in. I put a video of her eating the cake and us singing to her (sorry it is so dark-- it was already dark when we did cake). She did great with the party and is just a social girl but when she gets tired-- its only mommy or daddy! Anyway, we packed it up at about 11pm and went to church this morning. We then went to my parents for pizza after church and then we had a bunch of our camping friends over again tonight to finish up the rest of the food. We still had the jumpy tonight so the kids enjoyed that. The whole weekend was a great time and we were so happy to finally be able to celebrate the birthday and the homecoming of our little Angel!!!
