happy birthday, little one!

Our little Lucy just turned one, so here are some things I know about one-year-olds. . .

One-year-olds love balloons.
. . . and cousins and friends and Great Grandmas. . .. . . and they love presents and wrapping paper and ribbon . . . and birthday cards . . .
One-year-olds DO NOT like candles . . .
. . . so they may seem dubious at first . . .. . . but they soon realize they like cupcakes . . .. . . a lot . . .
. . . which is good 'cause there are a lot of them . . .. . . 'cause one-year-olds' moms think a birthday party is a really good excuse to stock up on things they themselves like, like cupcakes and izze soda . . . . . . oh, and one-year-olds definitely love their dads . . .
. . . even if they're going through a mommy phase . . .

Oh, I'm sad we couldn't make it!! Happy birthday little lady... I love the lacy bloomers!

I'm glad balloons are a hit because I was planning on having them for this munchkin's b-day in a couple months. Also thinking about wrapping up some cords, empty boxes, measuring cups, and cheerios. Seems like they'd be more appreciated than "real" gifts ;)

Cute cupcakes. Happy Birthday Lucy!

P.S. Love her gorgeous hair.

Happy Birthday! Man, she's a doll! I just love her! Sorry we couldn't be there to celebrate with you... it looks like you all had a blast! Couple questions... did you make those cupcakes!? Is that a full body apron you put her in!? And if so, AWESOME... where can I get one for my messy boys?

What a party! How fun. I am so amazed at how the year has gone. I wish we could see Lucy more often.

Hey, Juliann! I can't believe Lucy is 1 already! My little guy is 6 months old, and it's starting to freak me out . . . it wouldn't suprise me if he's bigger than your little one (he's 27.5" and 20 lbs!). Anyway, I'm sure you're a fabulous mom. It's good to see you are doing so well. We miss you guys! (P.S. Feel free to visit my little blog: mary-cox-family.blogspot.com

Happy Birthday little Lucy! You are such a sweetie! Looks like the big day was a hit!

Yay for 1-year-olds!! We've got a very busy one too, who also didn't love the candle-singing situation. (loved balloons of course) Poor Jack didn't get much ribbon/paper time with big brother trying to steal the show.

Happy Birthday Lucy!!

I showed the boys these pictures and Jesse said, "I love Lucy". She is so cute. We all miss her. She is way stylish in that little asian dress. Happy birthday Lucy.
