R's Birthday in pics

Let her eat cake!
Here's a few pics from R's birthday party which was toned down from originally planned as we are getting over pink eye and ear infections and coughs and fevers.

The first present

Grammy and E helping

Okay this is how you open presents

Ahhhh! Baby 
Let me help you with that

Reading the cards

So excited about another toy that make noise!

A bow!

This is kind of overwhelming 

Loving the noise toy





Eating the card... that means it is cake time!


What is this stuff?




Must have more cake / on a sugar high : ) 

The caption possibilities are endless...

Sweet little R how is it that you are one? How it is possible that one year has gone by? I think you screamed more today at church than you did the day you were born. You are into everything and especially love to pick up the tiniest pieces of stuff of the floor and put it in your mouth. You pull up to your knees but not to your feet yet. I think you aren't going to start walking - you will just start running. Running to give big sis a run for her money. You all have been playing together recently though E will commandeer things you are playing with but I know that your protest over situations like that will come soon. You have traveled internationally and put your toes in the sand in DR - but still not in NC, yet. You are saying mama and papa and nini and nigh-nigh. You are a pointer when you want something. You save mama from changing a stinky diaper more than 50% of the time by going on the potty - and for this I am ever so grateful.

Here's to your next year and every year after that!
