Happy Happy Birthday, Lily Dear (Part 1)

Yup.  It was my darling baby girl's FIRST birthday! And now my darling baby is no longer a baby...she's a full on toddler, walking and everything (more on that later)!

We did Lily's birthday in two phases.  We celebrated with my mom on Sunday-we'll call that 'labor' day-and with the Blakes on Monday-her actual birthday.

After church on Sunday (which, incidentally, was also Dave's brother's farewell) we went to my mom's for a yummy enchilada dinner.  We did a little decorating--yeah, I made a banner.




After dinner we opened presents. Lil got lots of great books, Grandma's specialty:



She got an adorable stuffed farm to help her practice her animal noises (she actually rocks at making animal sounds, hopefully I can put up a video of that soon!)



And then of course, the best part--CAKE!!



Then a few family pics.

Lily, you killed that cupcake. You ate every bite like it might be your last. I think you your expecting your luck to run out--thought we might wise up to the fact that we were letting you eat pure sugar and kill the fun. You loved that first cupcake more than anything I have seen so far.
