to get her 1 year pictures, which Grandma Schroeder took.
These are the ones I got with my phone.
I will post here 1 year pictures, HERE.
It was such a joyful yet emotional moment watching her get all these pictures taken and just thinking about to how our lives changed in an instant 1 year prior.
These pictures really made me lose it though:
I can't believe how much she grew in just a year!
I cried when I put her NICU onesie on her.
She is just a miracle and we can't thank our Heavenly Father enough!
When we go home, we got a few last minute things ready for my parents to arrive.
I also snuck some more birthday pictures:
1 year to go
What a special angel she is!
When daddy got home, we went to lunch at Black Bear Diner with Grandma:
Grandma and Grandpa Ulrich finally arrived when we got home.
We picked up the kids off the bus...
And then the BIRTHDAY festivities started!!
She had so much fun opening her presents. She was more interest in the wrapping paper than the actual present!
For dinner we had pizza and then it was time for cake!
She was not happy that I was trying to get a picture before. She wanted that cake so bad!
She was timid at first, but it didn't take long to figure it out
There was almost nothing left of that cake.
She seriously smashed it to pieces!
The kids LOVED watching her go to town with it.
Then it was finally time for our cake.
Happy Birthday to our Millie Bug!
Birthday Weekend Continues-
Grandpa's Secret touch got Millie to sleep!
The following day we went to the pool and had a BBQ together.
We had a nice relaxing rest of the day playing games and talking together.
The next day everyone came to church with us.
Then Grandma and Grandpa Ulrich left for home.
We love these Grandparents and so grateful they could make it for Millie's 1st Birthday!
Also grateful we all fit in our little apartment :)
