Interrupting vacation recaps to wish Sophia a very happy first birthday!!!!


Happy Birthday kiddo! I can't even believe she is already a year old. And I am kind of sad about it, actually. She might be my last child and that means I am done with the cute little tiny baby stage forever. At least until I have grandchildren. Sigh.

But no, this is a happy, momentous occasion. Even though Sophie was totally cranky. She scowled at the cake and the candle. She stared at all of us crazy people (cousins, aunts, uncles and friends) singing happy birthday to her, totally unfazed. She even cried a bit when we gave her her cupcake to eat. "What is this blob of food you so audaciously put in front of me, and do you actually expect me to consume such a disgusting looking thing?"
And then, she figured out it tasted good. I have never seen a baby eat birthday cake so delicately. One little finger scraping up the frosting and then putting it in her mouth to daintily suck it off. After the frosting was totally finished she decided the rest of the cake was too crumbly and messy so she had a bit of a meltdown.
So, we were back to cranky. Then she got her present: A toy lawnmower. And she was so excited. Even though she screamed of annoyance every time she ran it into a wall or got it stuck under a chair, she was just as happy toddling around with it as a birthday girl should be.
Happy birthday, baby girl! I sure love you!!!

  14. Lara, she looks so stinking, flipping cute!!! I can't believe she is one! Kanoa was really grumpy at his first birthday too-actually the only smiling pic i got of him was when he was immersed in chocolate cake. But...last one? Hmmm....
