Boogie Celebrates a Year!

By January 27th, 202188 Comments

Boogie Celebrates a Year!

Sweet baby Jesus, has it been a year already?! Got me all verklempt…

Sorry, I’ve got nothing. No funny tales today… no poop jokes, no witty observations, and sadly, no stories about my national geographics. Although you’d be glad to know that things are perking back up… nipples high to the sky!

Y’all have been there with me since the beginning- the good, and the not so good- so I thought it only fitting that I share her first birthday with her cyber aunties! I kept it really low key and had a small gathering at my new shack home in Happy Valley last night. In attendance– Momma, Daddy, Syl, hubby, myself, and Boogie of course. We had an amazing time and a chance to reflect and give thanks. Check out the view!

Aunt Syl gave Gia her gift early. That thing, with his one big eye…

Sugar. High.

Thank you all for your continued moral support, advice, and stories as I go into this next phase of mommyhood.

For your viewing pleasure… the shenanigans of Boog and Syl!

    Happy Birthday Gia!!!

    Nik, I hate those Yo Gabba Gabba things! They creep me out as well as that black man in that show. I used to be a nanny, and the boys loved that show. From the photos I see that Gia enjoyed that cake. Quoting those creepy Yo Gabba Gabba creatures "There's a party in her tummy!" Hahaha!
