One Year!

Our Ivy girl turned 1 year on the 21st and what an AWESOME day it was!

We had a lot of fun at our family birthday party!

Ivy is the sweetest baby and we are so blessed to have her.

Here's some pictures from our celebration!
That morning we started with pancakes for breakfast!

We went out on the town to run birthday errands!
Weston even took work off so he could be home for her party that afternoon!

She loves Nana & Poppop!

Coming down from her afternoon nap to a party!
A little unsure about everything!
The amazing birthday banner my mom made!

She was sick & a little wiped out, but she was still completely happy, which I was glad about! 
No tears were shed on her birthday!
She wore her party hat the entire night!

She was not even interested in her cupcake! Huh?

These are the cupcakes I made for everyone else.
Not the prettiest, but oh my gosh, they were delicious.
"Dad, seriously, please put me down, I have presents to open!"
Making a break for her gifts again!

Her & all her gifts!
We got her a lot of books!
Nana & Pop Pop got her a baby doll (The MVP) and clothes!
Gigi got her cute clothes, a couple books, & a little ball toy!
Her Grandma & Grandpa Brinkerhoff got her a ride-on zebra toy that she also loves
and my friend Gretchen got her an amazing Little People princess cottage.

She looks all shy...but she loves attention... She was a little shy about all the gifts and standing by herself in the center of the room!

Here's the party hat I made her!
Her strawberry cupcake from Ivey Cakes.
I love that place.
With a gold glittery 1 made by Nana!
The gift pile!
She got a lot of generous gifts!

Her cute headwrap from Jenna!

We had such a fun day & she definitely did, too!
She wants to have a birthday party every day!


I hope y'all all made it out to vote!
 Sweet daddy-daughter run!
It was probably 35 degrees outside (brrr) and Ivy had just had her flu shot that day & was feeling not well. Wes bundled her up & I wrapped that blanket around her & she was so happy & giddy abouut the blanket addition. It's the little things!
 Also, Ivy started taking little steps a couple months ago & a month or more ago started walking! She still walks like a baby frankenstein and it's adorable!
Ivy keeps life exciting & everything is very good! It's cold here in Tennessee with the arctic blast & I'm pretty sure everywhere else in the country too! Stay warm everyone!

Birthday Pre-Show

Really mom? This is embarrassing.
She was staring down a lady who was oohing and ahhing over her.
We're working on manners. HA!
 We took Ivy birthday shopping with us for her birthday.
Call us bad parents, but I did not want to buy this child something she was not going to play with.
SO, we tested out the toys by sticking them on her lap.
We bought two of them she was totally in love with.
We actually did not end up getting the thing pictured in the cart here.
I parked the cart at the end of the toy aisle while we talked over which ones to get. When I turned back around at Ivy, she was on her feet standing backward in the cart drooling over all the toys on the shelves.
 While we were price-matching at customer service Ivy waved at everyone leaving the store. She made so many people laugh. I was laughing so hard over her. She waves at EVERYONE everywhere we go. Ivy's extremely social!


Life is GOOD.

Never take a hungry baby shopping. She kept licking her lips and lifting the bananas and signing "more."
And then I looked down and she was folded in half and sucking on the grape crate.
Poor poor hungry child.
 She had to lick the screw of the air filter vent just to see what it was like.
 Sharing her doll with Nana.
 This child is always so comfy when she sleeps.
 This child loves climbing the stairs and is lightening fast at sneaking up them.
 This tiny partner in crime of mine LOVES our mommy-daughter dates to Target just as much as I do.
Both our hearts sing! I get to window shop & she gets to take in all the fun things around her.

 This step has hardly any room & she loves climbing up onto it. I love this tot.
 My mom kept telling me I needed to get a picture of her little hands signing "more."
Here's one. It absolutely kills me. I love this little girl & her tiny signing hands.
