Ella had her first birthday back on the tenth. I guess she can officially be a member of the birthday club. We didn't do anything fancy on her actual birthday. We ate, she spit out some cake, and she opened one present - a toddler sled from the Florida Lougees.
That Saturday we had a little party for her with friends and family.
She went a little Diva from all the attention and only threw one major tantrum.
She also loved opening all her presents. Thanks to everyone who came!
|Polar Bear Paws|
|And polar bear faces.|
|Hot chocolate bar.|
|Some of E's favorite foods.|
|A little nervous about all the attention.|
|Apparently I really liked this book.|
|E loved her new tutu skirt.|
|She also enjoyed being pulled around in a toy princess wagon, not meant to pull around one year olds.|
|Daddy and Diva.|
|Aunt Zoey kisses are the best!|
|We had a time capsule for Ella to open on her 18th birthday and we encouraged everyone to write her a note.|
|Guests also guessed how old Ella was in several photos. Not pictured is the "Ella Quiz" consisting of six questions about Ella. Her Dad got 5 out of 6.|
To culminate her birthday week, Ella had her 1st year well baby check. She's
28 inches tall *correction: 30.25" (she's almost as tall as her aunt Riley), 21 lbs. 11 oz. which is all about average, and her noggin circumference has grown from the 90th percentile to the 92nd percentile. Let's hope she puts the big brain to good use!
She also got four shots! Happy birthday baby girl!
