Happy Birthday Lyla Marie

We now have a big 1 year old!

Lyla's birthday party was fun and she did great the whole day!

  • Cake time: I thought Lyla was going to jump right in and make a mess of her cake. Nope! She put her fingers in and didn't take a bite for a while. This is funny since everything goes in her mouth! I mean everything!
  • Presents: Lyla got lots of cute clothes for summer and fun toys as well. I need to take a few downstairs so she can play with a few at a time and not want to play with all of them at the same time!
  • Company: we had great company for her birthday party and thank you for everyone that could make it! You made it a special day for Lyla!

Lyla's very own smash cake!
I ordered Lyla's first birthday cake from my family and friend's favorite cake lady Cindy. She makes the best cakes and I had to make sure Lyla's first was going to be the best! Cindy said she had to make Lyla her very own smash cake and it was so cute!

Here is Lyla eating her cake....or playing with it

Lyla's new thing is to walk to the stairs and sit on the first or second step. Here she decided that she needed to read daddy's new magazine...Cabela's!
Have a great week!

Almost 1

Lyla is going to turn the big number 1 on Wednesday! How can she already be 1 year old? It just seems like yesterday when she rolled over for the first time, smiled at mom and dad, started to crawl, started jabbering, took her first steps..... We are so excited for her to keep growing, changing and impressing mom and dad like no one can believe!

Since my last post I said Lyla started walking. For the last couple weeks, all she does is walk! If she tumbles over, she will get back up and go! No more crawling for her. She is also very fearless. She will get off furniture by herself (going backwards mind you) like it's no big deal. Even though she can go downstairs backwards as well, she likes to test the limits and try and walk down them like mom and dad!

Lyla is also finally teething! She got her first tooth last week! Now I can finally say she IS teething.

That's it from us! Enjoy the pictures and we will have more for the little birthday girl soon!
