Happy Birthday to Me!

Can you believe that its been a year since you all started thinking I'm so cute?!

We we had a quiet birthday party at my house last night - just me, Mommy, Daddy and Auntie Anna - who came into down from NYC just for me. (Well... my birthday and a meeting.) First we checked out all of the cameras to make sure my birthday would be properly documented for the blog. We didn't want a repeat of Thanksgiving!

Once I was satisfied with that, we got our party hats on and well, let the festivities begin!

Auntie Anna helped me open my presents. Once they're started I can rip off paper with the best of them. I gotta say, some people throw away the paper and ribbon... but really, its just another good part of the present. It's lots of fun to play with paper and ribbons!

I made a bit of a mess with all of my great presents. Thank you everyone!! I've now got tons of books (YEAH!), some new clothes, and a few new toys. I've already mastered my new sorting block... why sort when you can just take the lid off and put the blocks in and out that way. Confucious says - always go the path of least resistance. Or is that a general law of nature?

After presents, is of course CAKE! Yep its a pink cake. Mommy swears she didn't ask for pink, it was the baker's choice. Daddy was horrified! Anna & I liked it though. I am a girl after all.

I then proceeded to make another mess. Mommy said I was allowed to destroy it since it was for my birthday. I would like to point out that Daddy put the frosting on my nose before I even got to touch the cake - not fair! It was a pretty good birthday, though I don't have anything to compare to.

What a fabulous first birthday! You got to do just about everything! I hope you enjoyed it as much as we enjoyed the pictures. Just remember now that Christmas is only a few days away and, with any luck, you get to tear open some more presents.
Happy Birthday Dahlia...
