Party Animal

Excited about her gifts

FYI:  Cakes start to lean in 100 degree weather.

My little mermaid

Looks like a steady stream of urine coming from my baby and I won't promise that it isn't.  Has anyone else noticed that swim diapers do not hold in fluids???

Opening her gifts

We had Paisley's 1st birthday party on Sunday at a local waterpark and it was super fun!  Lots of our closest friends and family came to celebrate, even though we did it a week early.  (The waterpark will be closing early now since school goes back, so we bumped it up a week.)   She L-O-V-E-S the water, so she thought the party was awesome.  And she loves other little kiddos, so that was just icing on the cake for her.

She is learning SOOO much right now.  Yesterday she decided that she can walk, although we've known she could for months now.  She's just toddling all over the place like she's been doing it forever.  Super cute.  And she now pokes us in the eye and says "eye" in the sweetest voice.  It makes me happy that she's poking my eyeball out.  :)

She now says "fish" along with "kitty cat" and "doggy".  Not surprising that our child's vocabulary consists almost entirely of animals.   Although she does say "ball-ball" (not sure why she has to say it twice) and "boon" for balloon.   She loves to sing "la-la-la" especially to Beyonce's "All the Single Ladies".  In fact, she'll usually copy our "uh-uh-oh-uh-uh-oh-oh...."    

I have been a very bad blogger lately because my days are FULL with a busy baby, 2 jobs and summer time plans.  I'm committing myself to getting better SOON.   Maybe this week I'll make up for it.  :)


  1. Happy Birthday to your sweet little girl! I can't believe it's been a year already. I remember when you were pregnant and was on your cruise.

    She is precious!

  2. So cute! I LOVE that cake! And her tutu is to die for:). And, yes, those swim diapers leave much to be desired. Jackson's party is Saturday...yikes!
