Birthday Girl

My little girl recently turned 1. That's right, where did the time go?

Aside from the whole cutting teeth thing, she had a lovely day (I think the pediatrician threw down the gauntlet at our 9mth appointment when she seemed surprised that Naomi had 0 teeth at that point... so we now have a grand total of 10! I'm thinking that's quite the mouthful in a few short months.) It's amazing when you think about how much these wee ones develop in such a short amount of time.

On a crafty note, I churned out a pile of thank you cards as baby girl made out like a bandit!

I'm learning that my dear girly is much healthier than her Mum, preferring some yummy grapes or slices of bananas over cakes anyday. (The birthday cake was not the hit I thought it would be!)

not impressed with birthday cake

Wishing you a great day,

Hilarious about the cake! Lovely cards, too.

Btw, my daughter didn't get her first tooth till right around her 1st birthday. Your pediatrician was being silly! It's not that unusual.

Happy birthday to you too, mama! One year down, many happy returns.

It hard to believe she's one already. I've got a month and a half before Will's birthday. He got his first teeth at 4 months.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY NAOMI!!!!
The 4th of March is a day I remember with all my heart, because it was also my grandmother's birthday: she teach to knit to my mother who has teached me. Rosa was her name and she's still always in my heart.

The cards are so lovely... Naomi is a lucky girl!

Happy Birthday Naomi! Yeah, Melody was the same way with cake on her first birthday. Not thrilled.

Great first birthday cake pictures! Naomi's grown so much over the year... it's amazing to think she was a baby just a short while ago. I hope year 2 is just as wonderful.
