Emmy is ONE!!!


It is hard to believe that a whole year has passed since our sweet princess made her grand appearance on June 5, 2009 (sweet Wendy's birthday)! To say it has been a busy, fun year would be an understatement! Having a little girl has been so much fun, especially to someone who loves all things pink;)
On Saturday, we had our families and a couple friends over for brunch to celebrate Miss E's first year.

With her new piano from Wendy and Brad
Peonies at her party. My favorite! Pink peonies were the main flowers at our wedding five years ago;)
Cade and Rachel

Emmy and her new pony from Aunt B and Jud

Pushing her baby stroller! This is the only way she will even attempt to walk.
Lots of help opening presents!

Homemade strawberry cupcakes. I got the recipe from the Martha Stewart book, Cupcakes. You need this book if you like to bake! Mine did not look quite as good as hers did though- ha!

She was not really into the cake. She did not want to put her hands in it. Such a girl!
She even got kind of mad about it...
We tried again after the party with a fork...

...BIG success!:)

The only downside about her birthday: After her party, she went right to sleep. When I got her up from her nap, she was kind of warm and acting fussy. By that night, she had a full blown fever that lasted until Tuesday night (I thought it was her ears and took her to the doctor on Monday morning. Luckily, it was just a virus). Not a good way to start being one:( But we are glad that she is better now and back to her old self!
