First Birthday Play-by-Play

January 5th was such a special day...the girls' FIRST birthday...and I wanted to hold on to every single second of it. I tried not to break away too often to grab the camera, but I managed to pull together this play-by-play of all the fun we packed into the day.

6:45am: Morning snuggles with Mommy and Daddy.

7:00am: Breakfast (Mommy's signature rice cereal and pears...yumm-o!)

8:00: After breakfast, Mommy let us stay in our PJ's and PLAY!

10:45: Mommy took pictures of us getting up from our morning nap. Don't we look well-rested?!
11:15: We had squash - our favorite! - for lunch, with apples and blueberries for dessert. It was lick-your-lips good!

12:30: After we had our lunch, we bundled up (it was all of 18 degrees!) and headed to Garcia's to meet Auntie Shanda. She was there when we were born, so we just had to share in our birthday with her!
2:00: When we got home from Garcia's, we were ready to PLAY some more!

4:30: Mommy took more pictures as we got up from our afternoon nap. The first thing we like to do is peek over the rails of our cribs to see each other!

4:45: We had chicken, green beans, and bananas for supper. We love fruits and vegetables!

5:45: After Mommy and Daddy ate supper, Mommy served what looked like a delicious chocolate molten lava cake. Mommy and Daddy sang "Happy Birthday" to each of us, and blew out the candles on our behalf. Mommy gave us a taste of the cake, but it didn't taste anything like applesauce or bananas...YUCK! We hope we like our birthday cake better!

6:00: was time for presents!!!
...with a quick game of tug-o-war thrown in for good measure...
7:30: After such a fun day, it was time for one last snuggle, and then we were off to bed.

Can we do all this again tomorrow???

Looks like they had a great day. I love the play by play. How fun! You got some sweet pictures.

They should love that ball blower toy. I am definitely getting one for A when she turns 1. The other girls friends have had one. We have somehow managed to get this far without one of our own, but our girls both loved them when they were the twins age.
