Happy 1st Birthday to Baby E!

Baby E turned 1 yesterday and I can't believe she has graduated to the "toddler" category.  Despite whatever my kids are supposed to be called, they will always be my "babies."  (Sorry twitter friends for the reiteration!)

What she's doing these days:
  • loves "dancing" and "singing" to Yo Gabba Gabba.  "Dancing" = some tushie wiggling and "singing" = some tuneless vocalizations :D
  • loves playing with her big brother
  • started walking a few weeks ago and it's adorable bc she has a duck-like waddle
  • is fascinated with iPhones and iPads.  I think we have a future Apple lover on our hands.
  • is sporting quite the little baby mullet, but I'm afraid if I cut it, her slight wavy curls will never come back.
  • Her favorite foods are tomatoes, lemons, and cucumbers.  I think I lucked out with a healthy eater this time!  Big brother gets spoiled by Grandma and is constantly asking for doughnuts, pizza, and chicken nuggets.
Anyhoo, Happy Birthday to my dear little girl!  We all love you so much and are ecstatic that you blessed our lives with your arrival.

(BTW, we do not have ONE photo that everyone is looking at the camera and smiling.  It's kind of comical.)

If you have kids, how do you like to celebrate their birthdays?  If you don't, what were your favorite birthday celebrations?

  1. She looks so much like you in the 2nd to last picture with her brother.

    I'm in love w/all the chevron you've been making lately.

    I'm loving these family photos too. I hope to see y'all soon!

  2. What an adorable family! No kids here, but my bro and I were born almost exactly four years apart... just one day different. So we always had our bday parties together and it was awesome!

  7. CUTENESS OVERLOAD! I love the family photo at the end. : ) You make a beautiful family. Will you all be visiting Markham less often since you'll be moving farther from the border? : )

    1. Aww, thanks so much, Jessy! Yes, unfortunately Markham will be much too far to road-trip. We'll probably head to Vancouver instead. But if you find yourself in SF, let me know!

  16. Happy birthday to your little girl! You four make a gorgeous looking family; you should post more pictures because I can't stop admiring you and your pretty kiddos (don't adjust your creeper meter - I'm friendly; yes, I know how this comes off)

    I celebrate my birthday in the comfort of my family; we go out to a nice restaurant and I open my presents. That's how we've done it for the past 100 years and that's how I'm going to do it for the rest of my life. I'm a VERY low-key, low-people person.

    1. LOL - you always make me laugh, Anna! Thanks for your kind words! Your birthday celebrations sound very similar to mine except that my husband just asks me what I want so there's no surprise with the presents :)

  21. Reiterate away! I love, love these personal type of posts. You have such a gorgeous family, S! I lol-ed at everyone looking in different directions at the family photo. I think the candid-ness makes it even more special. Wonder what the kids were fascinated by over in the other direction? :)

  23. Ahhh happy birthday to baby E!!! She is SO cute. Love that 11month picture. She is STYLIN! And the family photo is just beautiful. What a gorgeous family you have, love it.

    My little niece turned 1 about 2 months ago, and we literally had a 3 week long birthday party for her. And we took lots of pictures of her eating her first cupcake (frosting all over her face). It was crazy cute. :)
