On her birthday morning, we decided to start a tradition and kidnap her and take her out to breakfast. You know, how we use to do in junior high, and make your friends go to school in their pajamas. So anyway, the three of us went to Magleby's Fresh for breakfast and she had some yummy french toast.
I tried to get everything done the day before so I wasn't stressing out the day of the party. It was at 7 so I was scared that if Kate didn't take her afternoon nap, she would be too tired. But she was a perfect angel all day. She took both of her naps and was in a great mood for the party. With all of my family, Paul's family, and a few friends we had about 50 people, but it was so much fun. This little girl gets plenty of love.
Eating dinner. We had 5 different yummy homemade soups and homemade bread and breadsticks.
Playing games with the kids.
Lots of friends and family.
So I wanted to make her a tutu a little while ago, but I wanted it to have a purpose. So I decided when we stripped her down to eat her cake, rather than just being in her diaper, she would get to wear her tutu.
Here is a darling cake. I am quite proud of it, but I can't take all of the credit, Mindy and Amanda helped.
Blowing out her candle...
I was pretty shocked that she didn't dig into her cake. She didn't really know what to do with it. She pulled out the doll, but wouldn't touch the cake. I gave her some and she liked it, but she wouldn't get it herself.
Here's a little clip of her and her cake.
Kate loves to reorganize our dvd's, multiple times a day. On the day after her birthday, we went to the Dr. for her 1 year check up. She weighs 20 lb 12 oz. and is 29 3/4 inches. She is now in the 50th percentile for weight and 75th for height. It looks likes she is finally started to slim down. (I am already missing her knee rolls)
So that's it! Now on to the next project, getting packed for our our big Disneyland trip next week.....
Oh ya, here is her invitation I made. So I can't figure out what is wrong with it, but every time I try to upload it, the words look all blurry, so I give up. You get the idea. If you click to enlarge, it doesn't look like this, very weird.
