Daphne's First Birthday!

My little girl has turned one already! I can't believe a whole year has gone by! She is still really little for her age - she's 18 lbs. 4 oz. (just barely on the charts) and she's 27 inches (10%). It's so fun having a little baby though. She can say yeah, no, hi, dad, and juice. She loves to eat! She would be eating constantly if we let her. She recently started figuring out when she's full though, so she'll actually stop eating if there's no more room for food in her tummy! Her birthday was on a Sunday this year, so we had a party for her on Saturday with both Andrew's and my families. We had dinner at the park, and then let Daphne eat her own piece of cake, and then she opened presents. It was a lot of fun. Thanks to everyone for coming and for all of your help and for everything you gave Daphne!

We let her open one present in the morning so she could get the hang of it. She caught on pretty fast.

With her cousin, Rebekah in her beautiful birthday skirt her Aunt Jordan made for her.

Her free cake from Macey's.

At first she wasn't sure what she should do with it....

but she soon figured it out.

Our little family.

She was really excited about her presents!

And even got pretty good at opening them.

She got a little upset when we took away the present she just opened so she could open the next one though...

We had lots of family there to share in this fun day. Thanks everyone for coming!

My big 1-year old on her birthday! It's so tiring getting old!

Her birthday outfit Andrew and I got for her.

We are a happy family.

She is such a cutie! I'm glad we were all able to celebrate together, it was so fun and such a busy weekend.
I don't know what I'm doing in that one pic though, lol!
