Look who's 1 - Birthday Blowout!!!

My baby girl is 1 year old!  When did this happen?!?!?  I felt like I was just pregnant with her.  This has definitely been the fastest year of my life.  It is just going by too quickly,  slow down!!!!

When I got Eden up that morning and brought her out into the living room she just stared at all the streamers and balloons.  It was quite funny.  She was so confused and had no idea what was going on and why mom kept singing songs with the word birthday in them all day long.  

 We began her official birthday celebration when Colby got home from school.  She woke up from her nap and we started to feed her dinner.  But she wouldn't take a bite?!?!  She would turn away and rub her eyes and have nothing to do with it.  

So I tried to feed her and she wouldn't do that either.  Obviously, something wasn't right.  So we didn't force her to eat and just played with her for a little while.  Well, it was just as she was showing us her new trick of walking with just holding one of our hands that we figured out what was wrong.  She came to halt and we heard some unpleasant sound effects coming from down low.  Next thing I see is a puddle at her feet.  Her bare feet I might add.  Dah!!!!!  So Colby flipped on his panic switch button and ran to the kitchen.  I wandering what he was doing, picked up Eden and took her over to the entry way, off the carpet.  Colby finally realized he was being a little over the top and ridiculous came over and proceeded to help me de-clothe Eden and get her into the bath tub.  Of course we have pictures of this momentous occasion but figured most of you could do with out the details.

After that she felt much better and she was all cleaned up ready to party.

Our new friends, James and Alyssa, surprised us and Eden with the best homemade gift.  When I was younger my parents would put us in a cardboard box and slide us around on the hardwood floors.  I was telling this story to Alyssa and she said her dad did the same thing.  So Alyssa and James painted a cardboard box, stuffed it with padding and covered it with cute fabric and tied it with a bow so we could pull her around in it!  We loved it.  Eden sat in it and just kicked back like she was in a hot tub.

Thank you Grandma,Grandpa,Nana, Papa, Ryanne, Jordan, Maureen and friends and even our neighbors (can't believe they remembered!!) for all the gifts!  Eden was spoiled.  So were mom and dad.  My parents contribute a few gift cards to getting a new car seat for Eden which we just got in the mail!!!


What is this mom??? and Why am I naked??

Didn't dive into the cake and eat any of it.  But I really don't blame her because of her little upset tummy.   

But once dad smeared some frosting on her and shoved her hands into the cake, she ripped it apart.

Happy Bday Eden!

Oh man I can just picture Colby sprinting away from such a catastrophe in his mind. That is hilarious! Glad she still enjoyed the festivities though!

That's too bad she wasn't feeling so good. I hate it when babies have upset tummies.
I seriously cannot believe it has been a year already! My goodness. Kids sure do make the time go by faster, don't they?
She's beautiful! Happy Birthday, Eden!

I can't believe she is already a year old. It seems like yesterday you were in our ward waiting to have her. She is a beautiful little girl.
