Arabella's first birthday

Yesterday we celebrated Arabella's first birthday. She is such a cute and sweet little girl and we love to have her in our family. Here are some photos of her enjoying her special day.

I may be biased, but I think this is one dang cute kid. She has such a fun personality and she knows what she wants.
Enjoying her birthday lunch. If you click on the photo and see the larger version you can see all six of her teeth. She cut the top four about a week ago, that was an interesting week.

More happy baby faces.
"It's my party and I'll cry if I want to..." She did not like mom putting the hat on her. She was perfectly happy with everything else.

The free first birthday cake from Albertsons.

The box for the real cake that we got her.
The actual birthday cake. Isn't that a great cake! She loved it and was so excited to take the toys off of it. When I ordered the cake they quoted me the price and it was what we normally pay for a cake, when I picked it up the next day I was told they had misquoted the price and that this was actually a $40 cake. Now I love my baby, but I would never spend that much on a cake. Thankfully they gave it to me for the previously quoted price.

Is it possible for a a baby to be OCD about getting dirty? Bella refused to touch the cake, the frosting on her hands is from taking the toys off of the other cake.
She was very upset when I tried to get her to touch the cake, she would have nothing to do with it.

I finally got her to eat some of her birthday cake by eating some myself and then feeding her from my fork. She would not eat if I fed her from her fork though. You can also see that she was having a lot of fun with the toys from the cake, she was covered in frosting, but still hadn't touched her own piece.
I love the messy first birthday photos.

All clean after a bath and playing with her blanket that her Grandma made her for her birthday.
I love how she wrapped herself in the blanket. She loves to cover herself up completely and hide.

The only downside to Arabella's birthday was that the poor little one was sick. She had a double ear infection and RSV this week. By yesterday for the most part she was feeling better, but still has a nasty cough. I have to say that she is the best behaved sick kid that we have ever had. We didn't even know that her ears were bothering her we just took her to the doctor for the cold that wouldn't end. What a good kid.

I can't believe how fast the last year has gone by and I am looking forward to many more years with this sweet kid!

Glad to hear she is feeling better. And I love that she wouldn't touch the cake. That's hilarious. And what's the deal with the free cake? Wish I had known that for Abigail. At least I can still cash in on it for Bryant. If I find out how it all works.

She is cute!! Sorry she was so sick. Seems everyone I know has a kid with RSV, we better not get it around here!! Hyrum wouldn't touch his cake for like ever on his first birthday either. I think he was intimidated.

She looks so cute. You got lots of fun photos. I have never heard about a free first birthday cake from Albertsons? I can't believe she is one already. 4 more weeks and Tyson gets to go into nursery!
