birthday party? check.

I feel like this past week has been a never ending to-do list.  But we survived the birthday party.  Was it perfect?  Um, not so much.  But did our friends and family come out to celebrate Ryann's first year?  Absolutely.  That is what matters.

For starters, the wee one woke up sick this morning.  :o(  Runny nose, cough, sleepy but couldn't sleep, yep that is what my poor baby got for her birthday party.  Chris had to drive her around for about an hour for the party started, just so she could get a little nap in.

Oh, and she threw up on her party outfit, less than halfway through the party.  So she flaunted her birthday suit for the rest of the gig.  Luckily I got a really cute diaper cover.

Honestly?  I didn't pick up my camera once today.  That feels kind of strange.  Luckily I hired my good friend Annie to come over and take pictures of this special event.  I can't wait to see what she got.  Until then, here is a really poor excuse for a sneak peak.  I took some pictures on my iphone before climbing in to bed with my laptop :o).

By the way?  Ryann hated the feeling of frosting on her fingers.  Don't worry, I came to the rescue and spoon fed her a few bites of cake.  She definitely seemed to like it.  Oh, and she is really really close to walking.  She is taking four to five steps at a time now.  Crazy!

Whew.  That is all I have the energy for right now.  Goodnight!

I have followed your blog for awhile now, and let me tell you, your little Ryann sounds EXACTLY like my little Ellie! They could be personality twins!

Are those hanging flower balls made from tissue paper or something else? My tissue paper flowers aren't nearly that full so I am interested to hear how you made them. Thanks!
