Adalyn's First Birthday!

Adalyn had a great birthday. Thanks to grandparents, for your love and support. She was spoiled - and it's so fun to watch her get excited.

Here we are, all set up the night before! We're getting good use of our birthday banner. It's so fun having pink all the time!!

Adalyn got this little scooter, and we gave it to her on Saturday. She loves riding around on it. I like the wheels, they all turn in any direction, so it's easy to get around!

Sunday Morning, the girls were up bright and early, as usual.  This time however, they were excited to celebrate Adalyn's Birthday
Andie took this picture of Shawn and Adalyn before church.  Very cute!
Still loving her scooter!
I love her pretty blue eyes.  I can't believe my baby is 1 year old already!!
haha - don't you love the progression of her ponytails.  This is after church, don't worry, it get's better!!
Two musical story books!!  She loves these books and was getting so upset at Andie and Ali whenever they would try to sneak a peek and play with it.  It was fun to see the youngest take charge! 

Ready for lunch in her birthday chair!
Time for another present.  She would open a present, play with it for a few hours and then discover another present.  It was fun to watch. 
Birthday Cupcakes.  We had strawberry cupcakes with cream cheese frosting.  Would we think of having anything else but a pink cake?  Of course not!!
Enjoying lasagna for dinner!  Love the orange face!
Time for another present.  This little piggy is so cute.  You put the coins in, then pull the tail and they come out of the snout!  She loves it, and again, was very possessive.  She doesn't quiet understand the tail part yet - she once all of the coins are in, she gets a little grumpy trying to get them out.  It's funny to watch.
Andie was trying to be a good helper and teach her how to pull down the tail.
Yeah, it worked!!
"Happy Birthday to you....Happy Birthday to YOU...."
She was very excited for her cupcake!
and so were the sisters!!  We were skyping with Shawn's parents, and Ali kept saying, "Mom - I want a cupcake, I WANT a CUPCAKE!!"  They had to wait the whole day, just looking at them, until it was time to eat them.  They sure enjoyed them!
Ponytails were done by the end of the day. 
She enjoyed her treat!! 

Happy, Happy birthday miss Adalyn. We sure do love you. She will go to her year appointment on Thursday. I'm guessing she's about 20 lbs. and 32 inches tall. She has 10 teeth (yes, the bottom molars FINALLY came in!) and is walking all over. She is a joy to have and a wonderful little sister!

Here are some video's from her fun day.  We finally got down her little dance with her hip swing.  Then, the musical drum (is going to be SO fun).  Musical parades every day, I'm sure!  Finally, Adalyn enjoying her cupcake!

Happy Birthday Adalyn! I'm sad we missed it but it looks like lots of fun and lots of fun toys for her. She is so adorable.

Hard to believe it has been a year. Looks like a super fun day for the little birthday girl. She sure has become quite the cutie! She reminds me of Cindy Lou Who with her hair like that!
