Oh, yeah, we just celebrated a birthday!

Things here have been a little crazy lately. Erin has NOT been sleeping well at night and I feel like my days are all discombobulated. I haven't been feeling like blogging lately, but I think some updates are due.

Erin turned one on Tuesday. She opened her presents from Grandma and Grandpa at supper that night.

After I took that picture, I said, "I wonder what she'll do?" Alec replied with, "probably eat the paper."

How well he knows his daughter!

She enjoyed herself immensely!

And the new puzzle was a hit.

On Wednesday we had some friends over for supper. We used a gift certificate someone had given us at Christmas to Honey Baked Ham since it was such a busy time of the week. We've been enjoying the leftovers since then!

Erin had the same reaction to her first birthday cake that Luke had - tried to touch the flame.

She was pretty tired by the time we got to the cake, which is why she has the pipe (it's been getting used a lot lately outside of the bed, another habit we'll be breaking in the near future). Here's another picture without it:

You can see how tired she was.

And here are a few pictures of her first encounter with chocolate cake. Of course she liked it, did you even need to ask?!

The friends who came over are expecting their first grandchild any day and it was fun to talk to them about what the next year holds. Erin is very interested in walking while holding onto someone's hands lately. My friend had fun "walking" around the living with Erin.

And the last little tidbit for the night - here's my ballet slipper hair clip on Erin. I think it's pretty cute - hope others will think so, too.

Katie,
I don't have your email. My stroller is a Phil & Ted's e3
European, I believe. It is AWESOME! Costs an arm and a let, but it is versatile, maneuvarable, fits easily in small cars and has real tires! It's not for hard core joggers, but for everything else, it ROCKS!!!
