Atlee turned 1 year on November 14th! so in celebration of her birthday, we had a big bash for her on Saturday! poor thing was so exhausted even before the party began, but we were able to get in a cat-nap before all the festivities started. she woke up just in time for the good stuff....to open all her gifts and stuff her face with cake and cookies! she was set on eating her Di-Di's (Eric's mom) homemade cookies and wasn't very interested in the cake at first. once i got the cookie away and gave her a taste of the icing it was all over.....she shoved the entire piece in her mouth. of course everyone started laughing and the noise startled her....she immediately started to cry, but that lasted no time because she realized that yummy cake was still in her mouth! we eventually had to take it away from her or she would have eaten the entire cake....like mother, like daughter! on to the gifts.....she got sooooo many toys and really didn't know what to do with everything. she actually was more interested in playing with the balloons. she is still finding toys and her face is priceless when she lights up with excitement to see something new. so, thanks to everyone who showered our baby with gifts and love on her 1st birthday!!!!
