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!
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!
