Happy 1st Birthday, Blue Ivy!


Do you remember where you were when you first found out that something was a-brewin’ in Beyoncé‘s womb? I do. I remember it like it was yesterday, ya’ll. Beyoncé announced her pregnancy at the 2011 MTV VMAs and, because I was in the middle of moving and missed the show, my bff Michelle called and told me the insanity. And I haven’t been the same ever since! Blue Ivy, we really are not worthy! Just a few weeks after partying on your Dad’s birthday, today we celebrate the 12 months of your blessed reign. Inside!

Happy Birthday Blue Ivy Knowles Carter! You’ve only been on this planet for, like, five minutes and you’ve already rocked our world! Let me count just a few of the ways…

Twelve Ways In Which Blue Ivy Has Already Made This World A Better Place:

4. Blue, we all know you’ve got a little BFF on the way, and that is awesome… even if your Mom and his/her Mom don’t get along. And according to this recording, they don’t. I’m not sure if you’re old enough to listen to this, but I wanna thank you for being the reason that THIS VIDEO exists.

5. The time when she invented a reason for Watch The Throne onesies. Like, seriously. C’mon. This onesie makes everything better!


6. Look at her little baby arm fat! We all know that baby arm fat has been scientifically proven to make the world a better place:
