Our baby girl turns 1!!!!

Here it is....a month late but it's here anyway.....
On June 8th Sarah had her first birthday. I can hardly believe that she's 1 already. Where did this past year go anyway?? I guess I am trying to keep her young since she's my last baby. Every stage we get out of is kind-of hard knowing that it's the last time. She's just growing up too fast for me.
She had a fun birthday. We had a few friends over and Grandma and Grandpa came over from Omak too. We just hung out and ate food. She totally soaked up the attention. She must have known that it was "her day".
She didn't really like the hat but I had to keep trying....

She loves this little truck thing (not sure what you really call it). She pushes it around everywhere and she has started riding it too. Her favorite is when the boys push her on our hard wood floors. Sometime they get going to a little fast for me but she always laughs about it....

As you can see here, she had lots of help opening the presents. I felt like broken record "leave her alone", "let her open it on her own", "back up", "I said back up!!".




It took a while but she left this hat on long enough for us to take a picture. She's finally getting a little better about leaving hats on but I don't really think she likes them yet...

Now this is my attempt at being creative....
At least she liked it...

This picture doesn't really show it well. She had cake everywhere!!! I took her straight up the the tub when she was done. She was a little "dainty" at first but she ended up taking handfuls by the end...
I'll end with a video of the "cake eating". She laughed and laughed. She was enjoying herself very much. There were about 10 people just standing around watching her eat and she knew it too...

Sorry it took so long to get these pictures up. I also wanted to mention that if you haven't stopped by to see Becky lately you should hop on over. She announced what Monster Truck's name is going to be and I think you would enjoy seeing it.
Well now I'm off to do laundry, dishes, diapers and more....I'll be back soon!

How sweet. She really is turning into a beauty. Sarah is sort of the exception to this, because there was a shot of her smiling in your post, but have you ever noticed how young kids don't really smile or laugh at events like that? I noticed that with both my kids' first birthday parties, and I think with Andrew's second, they didn't really smile. They had this wide-eyed, "taking it all in" kind of expression the whole time. I know they had fun... but I sure couldn't prove it to anyone. Sarah had that wide-eyed look in one of your pictures.
