You always hear the number one thing in being a mom is flexibility. And boy are we learning that with Miller. Miller had his first birthday Dec 31! I just cannot believe he is one! But that is for another post. We had Miller's birthday party planned for this past Friday. Murray and I were so excited about the party. Family and a few family friends were coming over and it was just going to be a fun time. I had found the perfect cake for Miller. He has all the sudden developed a love for tractors and loves saying "trac-torrrr". So after searching and searching I finally found a cake decorator at Bruno's to make a cake with a big John Deer Tractor on it. I just could not wait for Miller to see that cake and with a huge smile on his face say "trac-torrr".

Thursday night I went to bed feeling, not at the top of my game, but did not think much about it. But through the night I heard Miller coughing in his sleep. And every time I woke up to Miller's coughing I was feeling worse and worse. Friday morning I woke up feeling awful and Miller was not any better. Sadly, we had to cancel his first birthday party:( We were all so sad! I think the most depressing part was going Friday evening to pick up the (cutest ever) birthday cake that we were not going to eat. We came home and put it straight in the freezer. Ella was such a champ through it all. She had been so excited about Miller's birthday party and his cake that we searched high and low for, so she was so sad not the eat the "big" cake. Fortunately, Bruno's gives a free smash cake if the cake is for a first birthday. So Ella and Miller got to eat the "small" cake.

You sure could not tell by the way the Miller devoured the cake that he was feeling under the weather!

Hmmm, not to sure about this cake...

Miller's first bite was very cautious and polite.

It was all digging in after that.
