You know, a while ago I predicted that I was going to be very popular. I had no idea how true that was going to be!!
Yesterday morning, the mom’s were fussing all about – taking long showers, putting on make-up (well Mama C was) and then they fed me a little early and put me in a beautiful dress (it was pink and tasted delicious!). We got all bundled up in the car and when they took me out again, we were at a big party all for me! My Theresa (cause I’m still thinking up a good nickname for her) had organized a shower so that all of the people in the mom’s lives could come and meet me and see for themselves just how adorable I am (because sometimes it’s hard to tell from the pictures). I don’t know what happened to the mom’s because I didn’t really see them for the next few hours. All of these people kept stealing me away and told me how pretty I looked and how lucky the mom’s were that I had come along. Some of them tried to make me smile, but I wasn‘t used to all of these people, so I didn’t really know what to do – I’ll have to work on smiling on command. But it was just an amazing day because I got to see all of the people that I already know and love (the Grandma’s, Auntie CC, Theresa – even Joey for a little bit, Auntie Marina and Mee Maw and Auntie Madison) but then I got to meet all of these NEW people (I didn’t even know there could be so many people!) – I really loved Natalie, because she held me and just let me sleep in her arms (I was a bit tired with all of this excitement). I love my second cousin Alex, even though I tricked her and kept crying everytime she got to hold me. I got to meet all these ladies called “The Aunts” who my Mama C loves very very much (and Connie too – Mama C loves her too and especially the clothes she makes). And then there were all of the friends that the mom’s have – some that Mommy has known since she was just 9 years old!
I already had thought that it was a great day and then I saw all of the presents too! All of these people, who I was already excited to meet, all brought presents too! I just can’t believe how lucky I am! I got soooo many clothes (I’m going to be well dressed until I’m 2!), and a whole lot of books (which is good because I love my bedtime stories) and then toys and toys and more toys!! My Grandma E even made me 2 beautiful quilts – one that’s like Mommy and one that’s like Mama C. I can’t wait to be able to snuggle into them and have some cuddle time with her. And Gramma T gave me a gift card to Toys R Us so that I can go shopping! She must know that I’m already like Mama C and I love shopping very much.
I was really tired by the time we all got home but even still, I sat with Jason and Theresa and let them feed me, while the mom’s got ready to go out for their big double date night (to dinner and somewhere called Glee – I didn’t get it either, because if they wanted Glee they could have just stayed home with me). And I got to hang out with Mee Maw and Auntie Madison all night and that was the best way to end my amazing day!
