Today was a wonderful day! Today we celebrated Delilah's first birthday the best way we know how, PARTY! Surrounded by family and friends, Delilah opened all her wonderful presents and ate her very first cupcake. And let me tell you, Delilah has a very unique way of eating a cupcake. I will let the photos speak for themselves. Thank you to everyone who was here and sent her such lovely gifts. She really enjoyed her special day!

My beautiful, amazing little girl is ONE today! ONE!?!?! Has it really been a year? A whole year? There has been so much that has happened in this first year that I can't even wrap my head around it. No need to hash out some of the harsh realities of it, because no matter all of it, the good and the bad, it has been the best year of my life. Delilah is so WONDERFUL and growing so FAST! Everyone said she would grow up fast, but it SO shocking when I see it first hand. It seems her newborn/infant features have morphed into toddler features overnight. She may not be walking, or talking, or even crawling, but she has turned into a 'toddler'. Her determination to explore her world and conquer her disadvantages is astounding. PWS may be slowing her down, but it definitely isn't stopping her. She really is a rock star! I cannot tell you how excited I am to see what she does this next year!
Happy Birthday Delilah Grace! You are truly my most precious gift!!!
(What kind of birthday post would this be without pictures spanning the first year.)

I cannot believe it is June already. Where did May go? We just got back from a little vacation in Florida. We spent the weekend at Robert's beach house with a bunch of friends. Delilah spent Thursday and Friday with us, then spent the rest of the weekend with Nana and Pawpaw. She spent some time in the sound and the pool with us. My girl loves the water! She was so happy to sit in her float splashing around. When Mrs. Janet picked her up Friday to take her to Nana's I cried like a baby. It was good to get some adult time, but I missed her so much. Here are some pictures of her cuteness!
This month is going to be exceptionally busy for us. We will be going back down to Florida next week for my brother's graduation from High School. I can't believe he is graduating and going into the Army! It seems like only yesterday my sister and I were dressing him up like our very own life size doll. (Sorry lil' brother!!!) We will spend the week with all the family which I am looking forward to. Then we will return home for a mad dash of party planning. Delilah turns 1 this month!!!! And she will have the best first birthday party EVER! All are invited to the momentous occasion. Email me if you want an invite.
