Heidi's 1

Heidi's first birthday was pretty low key. We got together as family and celebrated with barbequeing and enjoying cake and ice cream. Heidi was grumpy most of the time. She was working on getting both top teeth, which a few days later they popped through... finally.

Heidi's new walker "Dino"
Her Lion Cake.
I decided to use a new frosting instead of the classic buttercream and was a bit worried. It was very different to work with and it was my first time using it, but I have to say it turned out pretty yummy!
She was a bit unsure of the cake and ice cream sitting on her tray. She kind of just picked at it a bit and then finally tasted it...
and loved it!!!

I am so blessed to have Heidi in our family. I love:
*that in the mornings she always has a smile
*her laugh
*how she will stand in the middle of a room holding onto one of the fringes on her blanket and laugh at how proud she is of herself
*that she picks up toys and puts them back in their places (she kept trying to help put french fries in the to go box yesterday at Las Margaritas)
*that she gets a huge smile on her face and trys to crawl out of my arms when Dad comes home
