opps! ivy turned one yesterday!

i sort of don't even know what to say about my little bug. i know i am a little biased, but she is perfect.

some of my favorite things about ivy right now are:
-the best grin, which for some reason i don't have too many pictures of. she is not a poser for the camera, but she is one happy camper (unless she has an ear infection).
-she still loves to cuddle and is such a great snuggle bug.
-the fact that she is good in the car- totally opposite her sister, which i am so grateful for.
-she is so tough and loves to be roughed up, velzy can clobber her and it does not phase her.
-how much she loves velzy, they are already little buddies, they sit in their car seats sometimes and just laugh at each other, and when she wakes up velzy runs to get her and they jump on their beds (velzy on hers and ivy bouncing in her crib) together and crack up.
-crawling up slides then sliding down on her tummy and doing it again, and again, and again.
-for the most part, she is mellow, and can entertain herself for small bits of time.
-how much fun she is at the beach and in any sort of water, she's the best water baby.
and she just woke up... i am sure i will add to this later...

p.s. we tired again with the remains of her cake last night (we saved the bears head), here is the grand finale...

p.p.s. i am real sorry for all of my spelling mistakes and poor grammar. if it was not for spell check and those squiggly lines that pop up underneath sentences that are not constructed correctly, i would not have graduated college.

this might be a weird comment to make but i mean it as a huge compliment--since becoming [for the moment] a city girl who is rarely [never] around kids, you are one of the few who still makes me want to have kids some day! cute cute cute.

I can't believe Ivy is already 1! Happy b-day little girl. She is SO cute and I'm sure a ton of fun. I love how she and Velzy are already best of friends...so cute!

Mahina said...

that is so rad that you put the cake in her face! love it! she really must be a mellow baby if that didn't upset her! it looked like she was about to cry, but she's a trooper!

Katie said...

That cake in the face is so funny! Her little face was priceless, she didn't know quite what to think about it all. One year birthdays are so much fun...Oh by the way, there is spell check when you post in case you never noticed. I use it all the time :)

Aubrey Jane said...

Happy Birthday to Ivy! Poor kid - trying to shake the cake off her face! She didn't even cry - I'd say she's mellow.

Candace said...

Happy Day to HER & YOU!

I love the video of her trying to shake off the cake! I can't believe it doesn't bother her that much. What a cute little blondie!

Jen said...

That was classic with the cake. I'm checking blogs at the carwash right now and this total stranger started busting up watching that vid of Ivy! I know, whatever, I didn't tell him he could watch.
She's perfectly cute!!!
