I'm 1 year old

No More Cake

Yesterday was my first birthday. I've been here for 1 whole year. That feels like a very long time. I've learned a lot of things though, like crawling, eating solid food, and sign language. There are also a lot of things that I was born knowing how to do, like crying, pooping, and sleeping. I do all these things very well.

For my birthday, Daddy stayed home from work for the morning and played with me. Mommy made me a chocolate cupcake. Mommy and Daddy sang Happy Birthday to me. The cupcake had this white stick on it with this hot orange thing dancing on the tip. Mommy said not to touch it though because it will hurt. Anyway, Mommy and Daddy blew on the orange thing and it went away. The cupcake was pretty good, although I really liked the pasta I had beforehand. That's me in the picture with chocolate crumbs on my face. And if you think that's messy, you should have seen the floor!

After my little party, Mommy and I dropped Daddy off downtown at his work. Mommy and I went to see a movie. I don't think it was very good because we left before it ended. I was tired. I took a nap on the ride home.

Mommy went to her knitting class in the evening so I played with Daddy. What a lucky girl I am; I played with Daddy in the morning and at night! He told me he's very happy to be my Daddy. I said, "Ga!" which means, I'm happy to be his baby girl.

My weekend

Two nights ago Mommy and Daddy went out on a Date. I don't really know what a date is but for some reason they didn't take me along. Instead, Cassie came over to babysit me. I had fun playing with her, but then I wanted my Daddy and Mommy and they were no where to be found. I was sad, but Cassie tried really hard to cheer me up. I really liked when she held me and she squatted up and down. She told me the next day that her legs were sore from that. That's funny because my legs felt fine afterwards. I was beginning to think that Mommy and Daddy were never going to come home, but they did. I was upset at them for leaving me for so long. But I was also happy to see them again. I hope that Cassie is still my friend after all the crying I did in front of her.

Last night I went to a birthday party for Mommy and Daddy's friends' Martin and Tiana. I ate yummy food like cucumbers, spring rolls, bread, a bite of cookie. I tried drinking Daddy's beer. I played with this black, fuzzy doggie named Maverick. He is very big and I got a little nervous around him, but he was friendly. He even let me stick my finger in his nose, although I don't think he liked that very much. There were other people at the party that were more my size but they didn't want to play with me for very long. They all could run around on their feet and I haven't figured out how to do that yet without holding on to a sofa or table. I cramped their playing style since I only can crawl for the time being.

This morning Mommy and Daddy went running and pushed me in my stroller. The air was chilly so I dressed in long pants, a long sleeve shirt, a thick jacket, and had a warm, cozy hat on my head; I snuggled under my blue blankie. We stopped at a bakery for breakfast. I had some of Daddy's coffee cake and juice. It was very yummy.

Smile for the birdie

Today I had a photo shoot at JC Penney, commissioned by Bachan. I wore a brown tweed jumper with pink accents, white tights, and a new pair of pink cupcake shoes. I felt very grown-up in my sophisticated outfit. I wonder if people who saw me thought I looked older than Mommy or Daddy since they were not dressed up. The lady who took my picture was very nice and friendly. We played peek-a-boo. She said I was "cute as a button." Maybe she saw me yesterday when I wore my shirt that said the same thing on it. Mommy and Daddy had a hard time choosing from all the cute poses I did. My photo website will have my pictures from my photo shoot within a couple weeks.
