I know what you're thinking....how many times can I blog about Ryan's first birthday? Right? Well, the answer is, as many as I want! This is my blog after all. :)
The day before Ryan's actual birthday, I hosted a little birthday party celebration at my apartment with all of my new friends and their babies. It wasn't anything super exciting. We had some sandwiches, sang Ryan happy birthday, opened a few presents, and she got to eat a cupcake. Oh and drank mimosas (the Mamas not the babies). I honestly didn't take near enough pictures of the festivities, but it was super fun and I'm glad we at least did SOMETHING. Plus it gave Ryan a chance to wear her adorable 1st birthday outfit again, which washed surprisingly well after her cake smash.

Ryan's new friends are all so sweet and showered her with some super fun gifts! Then we headed up to the pool for a little swim.

Pancakes were followed by a balloon crib photo session. I'm sure she was wondering what in the heck was going on but she seemed to enjoy it. That is until it was time to pop all of the balloons the next day and she was terrified.... Mom Fail.
I can't promise this will be the last post about Ryan's 1st birthday. I'm still waiting on her big first birthday gift from Josh and I to arrive and I'm sure I'll definitely want to post about that!
