On this, her first birthday, Bunny was greeted with a flurry of balloons first thing in the morning.* Another tradition we plan to continue. We may as well have given her the sun itself. She couldn't have been more excited.
Once the initial cheering and dropping of balloons had ceased, she spent a good 15 minutes trying to pick each one up, swinging them around and laughing hysterically.
This is what makes 6:00 in the morning not only bearable, but wonderful. How could you not be happy when this face is the first thing you see?
* This should go without saying but since this is the internet, it won't. Obviously, with a baby, you cannot leave balloons unattended for them to wake up to. Major choking hazard.
