Ivy enjoyed every last bit of her white cupcake with pink butter cream icing... and sprinkles of course! She dove right in and was covered from head to toe.

It was like Christmas! Greg and I have really never seen anything like it! Ivy opened everything from a wagon, a new chair, dolls, books, blocks, and more. She was quite overwhelmed but thankfully had lots of friends to help her enjoy her presents :)
I did not take nearly enough pictures of all of our friends and family. It is really hard to focus on picture taking and still keep track of a sugar buzzed one year old. Thank you to all our family and excellent friends who came to celebrate this special day with us!
I later heard the best advice... at your child's birthday party appoint a "photographer". This helps to capture the day and you are included in the pictures!! I am already thinking of who my picture taker will be at the big 2 party! :) Will it be YOU???
How could we resist this face? Ivy was devastated when we put the birthday hat on and sang Happy Birthday to you!! At first I wasn't sure if it was the hat or the singing... but the next day when she adamantly shook her head no in the presence of the hat I decided that was the tear trigger! Therefore, there will be no hat in the 1 yr old pictures- unfortunate as it may be.
Overall we had a super day! Happy 1st Birthday, Ivy Camille!
** Thank you to Greg for once again being creative with the picture posting! **
