1st Birthday Party

We had the Nacho's first birthday party a few weeks ago, and I think it was a success. I feel like I was in planning mode forever, and then it was over so quickly. (Kind of like my wedding. Months and months of planning for one fast night.) But it was so worth it. And am already starting to think about her second birthday party. Thinking about the party, not the fact the she will be turning two!

The party was an owl theme and the invite said "Look Whoooooooo's Turning One". And just like with my wedding, her cake was one of the most important things for me. I lucked out because two girls I went to high school with started a cake business, and they made the perfect cake for the party. We had the party at D's brother's house because they have a pool. August in Texas requires you to be indoors or in the water. My house is too small to contain everyone inside, so A and P's house was the next best option.

The day before the Nacho's birthday (July 31th) we went and had a family dinner at Roadhouse. We were at Roadhouse the year before when my water broke. I spent that day being mad and sad about everything that happened after the Nachos birthday. I wanted to be nothing but happy on her actual birthday. I want August 1st to always be a day that has good, happy memories; a day we celebrate. The 31st can be my pissed off day, that way the 1st will always be hers.

Here are a few of my favorite pictures from that day.

Why Nacho?

I am sure many of you are wondering why I refer to my sweet baby as a Nacho. Well, we were what you call Team Greeners, which means we did not find out the gender of our baby when I was pregnant. I loved the idea of having a true surprise at delivery time. But I also did not want to refer to my baby as an it the whole time, so we decided to come up with a name for said baby. And the first thing I threw out there was really just a joke. My first, and pretty much only, craving during the pregnancy was for nachos, so I said lets call the baby Nacho, and it just stuck.

Attempt #2

We started a blog for baby Nacho shortly after she was born, but then life took over and the blog died. So here we go again! Of course, I have decided to attempt the blog again during the busiest time of my year, aka the start of school. Could I have worse timing???
