Happy Birthday Sweet Wendy!

Our sweet Wendy girl turned 1 yesterday!  I can't believe how fast this year has gone by.  She is such a little sweetheart - always giving kisses and snuggling with us.  It sure has been fun for me to have a little girl to dress up and talk about sparkles and bows and princesses with. 

Her favorite toy is this cute little teapot that sings songs about manners and makes pouring sounds when you tip it over.  

Sharing with Mommy.

I just love her!

We found the perfect  balloon for her at our local grocery store.  It is a tiara.  She is our princess and it's become one of our most used nicknames for her.

The party started with some sprinkled fun-flecked cupcakes and singing Happy Birthday.  Easy enough, right?  Always a fun, simple part of the day. Well... we started singing the song and wendy quickly pokes the cupcake. It tips over and she gets hot wax on her hand.  Poor girl.

Eric has always been a little wary of flames.  The fact that it just hurt Wendy didn't help.

Everyone still screaming, Eric starts hitting Wendy. Over and over again.  I think he blamed her for making the fire even scarier.

After everyone recovered and filled their bellies with pizza it was time for presents.  We got a little dolly for Wendy.  We knew she might not understand or even like it now but she'll grow into it.  What little girl doesn't like baby dolls?

She liked the box and the wrapping paper the best.

She did pay attention to it long enough to try and feed it a ball.  What a nice girl. :)

Joe has wanted to get Eric this truck for a long time and what better time to give it to him than a birthday party?  He was absolutely amazed with it.  He has slept with it for every nap and bedtime since.  

Well all in all it was a fun, exciting, hilarious day.  We are so grateful for our Wendy and we couldn't love her more.  She melts our hearts with every sweet sound and cute thing she does.  So happy you're our's Wendy!

P.S.  Wendy had her check-up appointment today and she's in the 60th percentile for weight and 50th for height! Just perfect!
