Turning One

Today my daughter is one and I can barely believe it! It seriously feels like she was just born. She is so much fun these day! She is running everywhere and has such a fun personality! She is becoming such a social little girl! Smiling and "talking" to everyone! She loves going grocery shopping!

On Sunday, Uncle Rex & Aunt Amy had a birthday party for Elise at their house! It was a lot of fun! They had lots of stuff to play with! Her swimming pool was filled with balls, there was a big tub of water outside with lot of cowboy ducks floating around. We had fun squirting each otherwith them! They got her a big pink bouncy ball, bubbles, a cute outfit, 2 animals on wheels, and a book!

Here she is ready to open her gifts. We moved her to the floor after this picture.

Listening to us sing Happy Birthday to her and ready to eat cake for the first time.

She gobbled it up and barely made a mess!
Eric & I bought this school bus for Elise!

It is soft so it won't hurt if she falls on it. If you run the front into something it makes engines sounds! It's cute and Elise really likes it. We didn't get her a lot because: #1) We are moving to Colorado in a little over a month! #2) She is getting lots of gifts from family.
We went to the zoo this morning with Grandpa & Grandma! We had a blast! We went to the petting zoo! She didn't want anything to do with the goats. They are very friendly and one of them wanted us to pet her so much, that she was rubbing up against us. I think she was pregnant and needed a back massage! She was considerably larger than any of the other goats! My other favorite part was the Wild Bird Walkabout! There were so many birds! I was sure a bird or two were going to fly into my head! Grandpa & Grandma got her a shirt and cup from the zoo for her birthday! She seemed t really like the cup.
She missed her first nap and passed out in the car. In fact, I'm pretty sure she was sleeping before we left the parking lot! She barely stirred for the transfer from the car to her crib.
Saturday, is her birthday party and Sunday we fly to Michigan!
