hello...my name is maeve

hey there, i gotta make this quick. mom is in the other room taking a nap and dad never has a clue to whats going on. just wanted to give you all a quick shout out and let you know what the skinny really is. 
so most of you all know me as maeve, maevers or sissy.  today i turned one.(really my birthday was yesterday, but we celebrated it today, whatev) mom thought it was a big deal. what a nut!  she kept calling me her african princess. really?  could i get any whiter? 
                                                  
anyways it was a pretty awesome day. for starters we had rice pudding for breakfast (we eat a lot of rice around here BTW, tuna rice casserole, curry rice, rice and sauce...it is bound to get old soon).  then we all hopped in a car with some friends and headed to the beach.  i LOVE riding in the cars here. no carseats!  mom tries to hold me down but i have some pretty sweet moves to get out of her grasp. back to the beach...i attack the water. i must have been a fish in my past life. the waves and sand love me. if there ever were a sports illustrated toddler swimsuit edition i am pretty sure i would have a good shot at the cover. just sayin.

some senegalese kids came to play with us. they gave us cookies and picked us up and carried us in the water.  mom got a little nervous. i dont know why, again i say, a fish in my past life. i guess she was right to worry though b/c one little senegalese did drop charlie in the water and she got all wet and man did she wail. thankfully mom was right there to help out. some might have thought it was scary, but i thought it was HEEE-LARIOUS!
after the beach we came home and crashed. i slept for over 3 hours! dad had to come and wake me up. which i am very thankful for cause i had a party to get ready for.
all my friends showed up around 7pm. i opened gifts which were all pretty quality. best gift of all though was charlie having to watch me open my gifts and not being able to participate.  again HEEE-LARIOUS.

afterwards all the adults( i think that is what they call themselves) played animal charades. seemed pretty juvenile to me. all they did was grunt and howl and flap their arms a bunch. me? i played with my new toys and crawled around with Hayley (my BFF) and Charlie.
Finally the best part...cupcakes!

mom and dad made me wait while everyone sang some silly song and then i got to indulge in the sweet goodness of chocolate frosting and duncan hines cake. delish! 
k, thats all for now. i think i hear mom stirring...gots to get back to my crib.

If only Maeve had been holding a champagne flute in that first pic...I think I heard her saying "cheers!"
Loved walking through the day with you.

Maevie-cakes! You're hands down the best blogger ever (don't tell your mom I said that). No kidding about being a fish - that pic was hilarious. Can't wait to see more of your posts in the future!
