Happy 1st Birthday, Sophie!

We had a fabulous time celebrating Sophie's birthday today. She didn't quite know what was going on, but I think she loved all the "extra" attention she got (even though she already has our undivided attention all day long so I don't know how much more we could give, but it was attention doing different things I guess.)


We got a free cake from Macey's just for Sophie to dig into, and boy did she ever! She didn't hesitate to start picking at the frosting and shoving it in her face, and eventually made it to the cake. I'm not too worried about her sugar intake because most of it didn't even make it in her mouth. She almost had more fun smearing the frosting all over her tray and playing with it than eating it.

This is the cake that I made for everyone else to enjoy. It turned out much bigger than I expected but no one seemed to mind! :)

We did presents after cake and Sophie wasn't very interested in opening any of them, though she did get good at pulling out tissue paper, but she loved the toys she got and played with them the rest of the night.

Thanks for coming to celebrate the evening with us! It was a lot of fun!

I was wondering when I'd get to see pictures of the blessed occasion! First birthdays are what mothers look forward to that whole first year, especially first time mothers! Thanks for sharing the pix! It's crazy to see the pictures of all your family! They are all growing up so much, especially Julie! WHAT?! I thought she was you for a second!
