One year older and wiser too.....

I can't believe it. My baby is already 1. Annalise had her birthday on Saturday and she is officially no longer my little newborn (I am in denial.)


So two nights before her birthday we went to Nifity Fifties, and the servers came and sang happy birthday to Annalise. Here is the before picture:
Here is the after:I don't think she likes the Happy Birthday Song.

The morning of her birthday she got to go swimming with Grandma and Grandpa Lawrence and Auntie Amy....
She loves swimming, so it is too bad that the summer is coming to an end.

Annalise had her birthday party on Saturday......
a ladybug birthday party. It was so fun making the cake....

We also had a lot of fun with her friends. We played some music...

Then we read........and made some ladybugs out of plates.

Then we ate some Mac N'Cheese and Chicken Nuggets while Annalise opened her presents....

And of course ate some cake....

We sang happy birthday one more time with her 1 year candle....I tried to get her to blow it out...she wasn't interested. Maybe next year. It has been an awesome first year as a mommy.....and I can't wait to see what Annalise will do next. (which will probably be walking.....ahhh!) She is a blessing to our family, and I hope for many more birthdays to come.

darling! everything was darling! I CAN NOT even belive she is already one! where in the world has the time gone? It seems like just recently we were getting the call that you were in labor and she was a girl! That year went by so fast! The pictures were way cute, it seems like you had a lot of fun, and I am sure you put on a killer party!

I can't believe she is one already. She is adorable. I am so sad that we missed the wedding. I would have loved to see you. If you are in Utah again. Call me.

Well As I was looking at Kelseys life (you should turn it into a show.... we were thinking about it) Gooby comes in and starts laughing at the pics and pointing to the big pic on the main blog. He loved all the kids at her party. Life wouldn't be life it it was boring.

Man she is adorable! I love that picture of her after they sang happy birthday, and the ones of her covered in red frosting! That is an awesome floaty swimmer thing too. We had a fun time at the party!

Thanks for the invite to Anaalise's birthday party. Tennyson had a blast. I think his favorite part was pounding on your drums and of course--the lady bug cupcake! It's amazing how fast they grow up. Enjoy this second year!
