Over the weekend, Seeger and I attended the birthday party of the world's cutest baby girl. Yes, Melia turned one! I was super excited to shop for girl stuff. (Seriously. I think I spent 2 hours in Target browsing through the toys/books/clothes racks.)
Seeger wanted to get Melia a doll but I knew she'd gotten one for Christmas (plus, I really wanted to focus on girl clothes. I lerve buying baby girl clothes!) Check out the outfit I picked out. The jacket is super cute and I got a great deal on it. ($28 marked down to $6.) And it matched the skirt perfectly! Melia moved into the one-year-old room at her daycare and I'm confident this outfit will secure her spot with the cool kids.
I'm glad we opted on not getting a doll since she received 3 at her party. My kids love their wormy balls so we picked one out for Melia. Of course, Seeger picked pink - his favorite color. They were no help when choosing a book for her though. Seeger kept telling me we should get her a Thomas book and Nicklas was too involved in looking at the Goosebumps books to check out the board books. So I picked out one with a birthday theme. After opening her presents, Melia's dad told me he loves Karen Katz books. Score!
Before I sign off, you have to check out this picture of Melia's cake. Not only was it super cute, it was also VERY tasty. Even the-boy-who-only-eats-frosting, Seeger, agreed. He ate the whole piece!
