1 year celebration

This weekend has really been one of my favorites ever--my little girl's 1st birthday. It has been a weekend of celebration and reflection, of bittersweetness, jubilation, and awe. God is so good.

I took off Friday to have a mommy/girlie play date, and it was so worth it. I think it even helped me enjoy her party more because I didn't feel like it was slipping by too quickly. We had a lunch party on Saturday, and Addison got to tell all of her "family" that she was 1. Little girl knew exactly who the party was for too. It was hilarious. Seriously, though, it was special for her to be surrounded by so many people who love her--she is one blessed little girl!

Today, on her actual birthday, we just did special things with our little family of 3. We watched Elmo's World, read books, rode in our new Cozy Coup and Radio Flyer Wagon, went to the park, swung on the swings, and blew bubbles. Addison took 9 steps in a row too--she's getting more confident each time! It was a day that I know I'll not forget. Here are a few pictures, but I've posted some others on facebook.

Thanks to everyone for making it so special!










***Update: We went to the doctor yesterday, and Addison is in the 95th percentile for length at 31 inches, the 50th for weight at 20lbs and 14oz, and the 75th for head at 18ish inches. Sweet girl had to get 4 shots and yelped with the best of them! :)

That's such a classic cake-on-face shot. I LOVE it! Some kids don't get into all that, so I'm so glad Addison seized the day :) Way to go Addison! Happy Birthday!!!
