Today is my nieces 1st birthday!! Why do we call it that? Last year was her birth day - this year is her 1st birthday anniversary. I got to go over to her place for presents and cake and ice cream. It was great! She doesn't understand presents yet - she really wasn't very interested in them. Maybe that's a good thing. She also didn't attack the cake - she's unaccustomed to eating food with her hands, I think. However, she did eat her cake. Her mom even gave her some ice cream, which she seemed to enjoy. Happy birthday, Em!! I love you so much!
