find a cuter baby, and i’ll give you a million dollars

just kidding! if i had a million dollars to spare, it’d be more like good luck finding me.

but seriously, that child kills me. i show up on sunday for her 1st birthday party, and i turn a corner to find her sitting on the floor and what does she do when she sees me? she applauds. i just about died, considering she’d never done that before. takes her little hands, grins up at me, and just claps.

i know everyone says this, the whole “oh they grow up so fast,” but it honestly feels like it was days ago that on my birthday i got the best and most hilarious phone call from my aunt kimmy which kind of went like this:

“hey babe! happy birthday!!!!”

“thanks kimmy!! popping up soon?”

“i was on my way but i just got called into work! but i do have to tell you though, i’m pregnant!”

……. please note, this was said in the same tone and manner you’d inform someone you were out of milk.

………… please note I never go speechless. i generally talk way, way too much.

i nearly up and died, and after (legitimately) a full minute of silence i full out sobbed and the only thing i heard on the phone after that was kimmy laughing uncontrollably. she has ALWAYS said she’s never having kids, and always joked that i was her child and she’d had enough after me so the news was a shock to say the least. seriously.

and now i have an upside down book reading, mohawk haired (i genuinely hope her hair stays like this for as long as humanly possible), icing faced bundle of awesome i wouldn’t trade for anything. happy 1st birthday addy!! you are the BEST birthday gift i would have never ever thought to have asked for.

much love,

candace

  1. She’s unquestionably super cute! I love her fuzzy little mohawk too. Her laugh is something else, with the gravely little voice..too much.

    ps. I see a pretty cute pudgy little hand holding her tray at the end…I bet that kid….aw nevermind this post isn’t about him
