Birthday party pictures and an update on my big girl!

Once again, I want to thank Allison Hess for taking these pictures for me! She was awesome - staying the whole time, running around making everyone smile for the camera! We got over 60 images! The rest are on facebook : )
I love her face in this one! This is actually outfit #2
Opening presents! Paigers got all kinds of fun stuff.

The golf clubs were popular with the kids at the party. All the boys were taking them. I was like - guys...they are pink!
Daddy love
A bath after cake was a necessity! Her hair was covered in frosting, and I had to take her birthday '1' shirt to the cleaners!
At least she had fun!

The family - for now : ) You might notice that my hair is not done. Well that was such a crazy day, if you remember from my first post about her party. 10 minutes until party time - David was not back with the food, I hadn't finished putting tule on everything, and I was in my sweats. Oh well!
I love this one.

This girl loved her cake
The dessert table. I like the way it turned out. The sign says 'so sweet of you to come.'
Love my bug!
Her cake...from Homeland for $12.99!!! We had tons of cupcakes, but I wanted her to have a birthday cake too. I waited until the last minute, and by that time, Homeland was the only place I found who could make it. It was freaking good!!
I adore this picture.
My precious baby - wait...toddler.

What we are up to in this 4th week of her 12th month?

*WAFFLES! She refuses to eat anything else for breakfast. She will eat cottage cheese, grapes, and blueberries, but only after she has eaten her blueberry waffle.
*I think we are still a ways off from walking. She is just not interested. My guess is 14 months. Which is fine. My bug has never been one to conform to those 'rules.'
*Bedtime: 7:30 or 8. She is such a sleeper. She sleeps 12+ hours at night and still naps at least 3 hours a day. If you mess with either one of those things, you (I) will pay. Dearly.
*Stranger anxiety is lessening, but she is in full-on 'mommy is the only one who can take care of me' mode. I have a love/hate relationship with this one. I love that I have someone who is crazy obsessed with me, can't stand to be away from me, loves me with a passion I didn't know existed...but it would be nice if I she eases up a bit. I know it will come when she is ready, so I don't worry about it.

I plan on doing an update on pregnancy #2 and a full re-cap of IVF #2 for those who are interested, here in the next few days.

Have a great weekend!

Just found your blog. I know where your coming from with stranger anxiety. My daughter is the same way and sometimes Daddy isn't even good enough for her...only Mommy. I keep reminding myself to treasure these moments when she only wants me because it won't be like this forever. My daughter is 18 months and is still super clingy to me!! We got better for a while but a trip to the doctor has ruined anyone elses chances with her now. :o)
