Our little redhead is one year old today! I am truly amazed at how quickly time goes by. She is a joy and a blessing and such a happy little girl. It is a strange sight to see her without a smile. She has started taking a few steps if we set her away from us and make her walk to us or a toy, but nothing consistent yet. She knows she can get to where she wants to go by crawling very quickly.
Above are pictures from her birthday party we had yesterday. We were supposed to go to Cosmo Park, but the weather did not cooperate. It was rainy and cold, not unusual, but I was hoping for a warm April day. Maybe one year we'll get to be outside on her birthday. Luckily, the family is flexible and we had everyone over to our house, where we barbecued and had ice cream cone cupcakes. Rory really liked hers and didn't want it to be taken away, but we quickly distracted her with gifts. Of course, she got distracted by the toys that were unwrapped as well as the discarded wrapping paper. It was a good day! As Devon said, "I think Rory really liked her birthday party."
