My 1st baby is 8!

It is a very special someone’s birthday today. ..

My 1st baby is 8 years old.

Happy Birthday Abby!!!!


Her Aunt Laura sent a fun birthday package.


And her Aunt Jenny and Cousin Ellie sent this nice birthday email.

Dear Abby,

Happy 8th Birthday! I can’t believe what a big girl you are. I can’t wait to give you your birthday present when I see you next.

Ellie says “woof,” which means, “you better have a good birthday or I’ll herd you until you do.”

Make sure Katie gives you lots of treats today. Also make sure that baby doesn’t steal your thunder. He’s cute, but he shouldn’t get ALL the attention on your birthday.

See you soon.


Aunt Jenny

She did not appreciate having to sit and stay for taking a picture with her birthday cupcake. But seemed better about it after eating the cupcake and wrapper.

And then, thought the bunny was pretty cool, but seriously where are the treats? photo 2_bdayphoto 3_bday

You can read about how Abby came into my life here!

It is tough work being the birthday girl. . .

everyone wants to give you birthday pets. . .


and play birthday tug of war. ..

but at the end of the day, birthday snuggling is the best!


Happy 8th birthday Baby Girl!

      Thanks… I think so! It was pretty cute how she wanted to keep playing with her birthday bunny after she realized there were no more treats coming!

  2. Happy Birthday, Abby!! You’re right – birthday snuggling is definitely the best! 🙂 I hope Abby’s day was filled with lots of treats and play time!

      Thanks! And I think she got more treats and play time than on a ‘normal’ day but she gets a lot of treats and playing every other day too, so maybe not! 😉
