On a lighter note

In the midst of our medical "storm", which went on to include--besides the seizure-- 5 separate fevers, hacking coughs, croup, pneumonia, a damaged ear canal, and no sleep for Mom, we had a bright spot.  We celebrated my baby girl's first birthday.  I am absolutely c-r-a-z-y about this tiny one, and it's amazing to me that she can still be a complete novelty after a year in our family.  I cannot get enough of her and many times a day she makes my heart almost burst with love for this darling, joyful little baby.

the setting




the tissue paper fluff balls



the cake




the birthday girl


the gifts



the first candle



the carrot-cake-made-with-applesauce-and-no-frosting cupcake (yeah, i'm just a really fun mom)




Besides the sweetest little jabbering-all-day voice that you have EVER heard, she also melts my heart with her 'scrunchy smile'.  I can hardly stand it, it's so cute, and I'm sure that she could use it to get a puppy or American Girl doll someday.  I would say she liked my play table gift.


And some more.


Okay, one more.


Okay, last time.


Okay, seriously.  It's going to be very hard not to spoil this one.

Wow, she is one of the cutest babies ever! Such adorable pictures and such a beautiful birthday celebration! Happy, happy birthday sweet little one. I hope you are all feeling much better now. Sometimes when it rains, it pours, and it's really been pouring at your house. I'm glad that your baby can be a sunny spot in all of it. Love you guys!

Ohhh, how fun! I wish it was as cute for me to be smushy and have chubby cheeks as it is for her ;)

Glad there was some fun to your not so fun week. I cannot believe all you went through!! Here's to a much brighter week...
