a Bina birthday weekend.

We have never been about having big birthday parties. We always celebrate, but not with crazy amounts planning involved. I didn't buy one present in advance, or have any idea what we were going to do the day of.
I think the 1st birthday {and maybe even the 2nd one too} is more for the parents anyway. We can give ourselves a big ol' high five for making it through all those sleepless nights, and blowouts we had to change in public. 

When Sabrina woke up in the morning, I told her the first present I was giving her was that she didn't have to get her hair done. As much as I like to doll her up, she really hates it. Another present I gave to her was a bowl of popcorn that she played in for who knows how long, making a ridiculous mess. 

I lost track of how many times we sang the Happy Birthday song, and she clapped and smiled every single time. We ate enough cupcakes to give ourselves stomach aches, and we called the day a success.

I hope she never loses her contagious smile.
