1st Birthday Pics

  Like a little pink princess, Isabelle was the star of the show at her Birthday BBQ last weekend.  The timing was perfect as her Nanny and Papa were in town as well as Leah so we were able to celebrate with them as well as our friends in town.  She's wearing an adorable little outfit picked out by her proud Daddy which matches her sucky perfectly.
  The sun shone all day and there was hardly a mosquito in sight.  I couldn't have asked for a more perfect day.  It was so nice to have family and friends gathered together, an event that proves more difficult as more of us move further and further apart.  I can't believe my baby is already a year old!! :o( 

  These blue and pink cupcakes disappeared quickly with the children gobbling two each.  I even made the icing from scratch this time, not bad for the non-baker LOL!!

  Isabelle very daintily picked off and ate all of the icing from her pink cupcake, licking off her fingers carefully between each bite.  Her buddy Levi ate only the cake and skipped the icing, they could have shared one between them.

  Once she was done with the icing she decided to play with the cake that was left behind.  So much for being dainty.  She spread icing all over her tray and filled her bib to the brim.

Isabelle's first steps !!

  Just as I thought she would never walk, she took those first akward steps on the eve of her first birthday.  She was a little slow to get moving but gained momentum with each step.  This new game of walking to her sibblings continued through to bedtime.  With my other two, once they figured this out there was no more crawling.  But Isabelle has tired of this new game and is back to familiar ground scooting around on her bottom.  With some encouragement we can get her to take a step or two, but she is not eager to walk as her sibblings were.  OK by me as she is growing up way too fast anyways.
