Rosalind's First Birthday Party

This is the birthday girl! The hat wasn't a plan of the outfit, but it was a very windy day and her ears seemed to hurt.
Rosalind trying to take part in the gifts a little early.We wanted a cake that was specific to Rosalind's likes and dislikes. She really likes this.
She had her own little smash cake.
And away she goes!Actually, she played with the little pepperoni pieces and then ate the cake really daintily. So we gave her a cupcake with gooey frosting. That got her into the spirit a bit more.So excited she started spreading the cake smashing fun. You can tell I was also excited about this.
About a minute and a half after the party was over.Enjoying her toys after we got home.

Rosalind, you learned how to blow kisses on the actual day of your birthday. You say "hi dad" when we hand you a phone. You walk almost entirely upright like a proper biped now, instead of the orangutan walk you have been sporting. One of our favorite developments has been that when we sing "When you're happy and you know it", you actually clap your hands. You love pizza, grilled cheese, celery, bananas, noodles (because of the awesome slurping), and, well, just about every type of food we put in front of you. Except baby food. You are pretty much over that.
Watching you grow and change over the last year has been amazing. Looking back at all the pictures, your father and I can't quite fathom how small and helpless you once were. Happy birthday, baby girl!
