Party Day

We celebrated Kensley's birthday yesterday at our house. It was a small party with just family, but we all had fun & most of all, Kensley had a good time. It was a Baby Einstein theme & I made her a caterpillar cake. She loved it when we all sang happy birthday & she clapped her hands. I was so anxious to see how she would react to the cake because both of the boys didn't eat their cake...Carter even cried. Kensley was not a bit shy about it. She dug right into it & pretty much cleaned it of it's icing. She discovered how to dig into the cake toward the end, but I think she was so full of icing, she didn't eat much of the cake. I cleaned her up good, then it was off to opening presents. Corby was letting her play with his cup, therefore she wasn't a bit interested in her presents for the first few minutes. I tried to take the cup away & she screamed. She got interested when she saw the barbie doll. It was in the box, but she was giving it kisses & hugs anyway. (I love it that she likes dolls & babies!) She got some diapers, a push & go ride-on scooter, books, clothes and a baby doll that laughs. We got her a standing interactive Leap Frog toy that she loves. I also made her a scrapbook of her first year. I took a picture of her every Wednesday (the day she turned a week older) for 52 weeks. I put them all in a scrapbook and wrote a letter to her in the back. I cried when I wrote the letter... I guess just thinking about how fast the past year has passed by & thinking about my baby growing up. That's something I'll treasure as well.

I'm exhausted, but we had a good party. They boys have had as much fun with her toys as she has. They've also ate LOTS of cake! We had plenty left over.
