The world's coolest couple, Beyonce and Jay-Z, has even more to celebrate than usual. On Jan. 7 their daughter Blue Ivy Carter (a.k.a. the world's luckiest baby) turns one.
We still remember the first time we saw her adorable face... which also turned out to be the last time, since Bey and Jay have been hyper-vigilant about keeping Blue away from cameras!
Now that she's entering her toddler years, it's going to be a lot tougher to keep that kid out of the paparazzi's crosshairs. Even so, we think the coming year will be good to little B.I. Here are 5 things that Blue Ivy has to look forward to, now that she's one year old.
First words: We don't know if Blue has started talking yet, but her vocabulary is about to explode. Pretty soon, she'll be saying things like "iTunes," "hustler," and "Driver, please take us to Clooney's house."
Swank new digs: Beyonce and Jay-Z have reportedly rented a suite at Brooklyn's Barclays Center just for Blue Ivy, complete with toys and flat-screen TVs. At $1 million dollars a year, that's one heck of a first apartment!
Sushi dinners: Jay-Z is known to be something of a foodie -- and now that Blue Ivy is eating solid foods, she can finally appreciate her dad's impeccable taste. Do they have high chairs at Nobu?
Walking! We imagine that she'll skip the usual first steps and go right into the "Single Ladies" dance. (If she needs help, maybe this kid can give her some tips!)
A new BFF: With Kanye West and Kim Kardashian's baby due this year, Blue will finally have another kid to play with on tour -- and later, a friend who understands exactly what her crazy life is like.
Blue Ivy definitely has a bright future -- but in honor of her birthday, let's look back at her adorable past!
