So- like I said we had a cutie little first birthday at our house.
And after the first initial taste aided my mom and dad...
This was the reaction we got...not really quite what was expected.
Daddy said, "well maybe she doesn't like chocolate cake..." So here's the play-by-play of what followed adding a different flavor to her options.
Ok there's that stinky chocolate cupcake still on my tray.
Ooh, here's something different; it looks somehow inviting.
I shall grant it a fingertip
Hmm, perhaps not such an evil concoction.
Once things had settled down a bit we had some birthday kisses.
"Uh, you expect me to WHAT to her?"
All 3 crazies.
Who invited this guy?
Gettin into it a little bit more
Hi guys, I'm not horrified at my first birthday cake anymore...at least enough to wave hello.
And even dare to poke the meanie mud pie they tried to serve me.
Ok Dad, so you didn't do so bad after all.
OK YOU MADE IT THIS FAR- YOU CAN KEEP GOING
Firsts at unwrapping
Her own big girl remote. (which has a song about how now she's in control...)
Oh, Mom I like this one.
She could barely wait to wrap her arms around this big guy.
Peering into the shape sorter.
The Party Animal
We ladies have to stick together
Too cool for school
BRIEFLY SOME OTHER HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE WEEK
I found a little stow-away in my polish drawer.
Then she was modelling her new sweater.
And demonstrating her new-found prowess at descending the stairs all by herself.
Then there's this goofball.
Finishing the last piece of the puzzle.
My first try at pizza...um I might like this stuff, eh?
And then chocolate...when there was no pressure of course. Actually she did this on the down low and then mommy found her lookin like this. Baby faces covered in chocolate is always so hilarious to me. Doesn't need to be said she was not a happy camper when it was taken away.
WE HAD A BLUE AND GOLD DINNER WITH MR. BEAR
Who is apparently too cool to smile for pictures in public anymore.
Receiving his belt loops. We love his scout leader Natalie!
And he loves scouts! No really- he does :)
And there you have it- thanks for stickin it out til the last pictures. Love you lots family and friends far and wide. See you next week for our wrap-up and here's hoping you and yours are happy and healthy for another week!
Over and out.
