Well, what's a blog post without pics. I know you are all looking for those sweet faces :)
The birthday girl with her first spatula covered in icing. Ok...Mommy needed quiet to finish the cake :)
Bridget looking slightly confused :)
The cousins not so patiently waiting for cake. Only one plastic spoon was broken in this display...guess who's....
Ahhh, Daddy's girl, double-fisting her cake :)
Bridget had her one year doctor's appointment this afternoon. Both the receptionist and the doctor commented on Bridget's quirk of trying not to smile at you when you talk to her. They both said, "It seems like she's trying not to smile." Yupper...that's exactly what she's doing. She's been doing it for months now. It really is the funniest thing. And she is so determined to not smile...she can really hold out for a while. Never seen a baby do it before. Such a tease!
Anyway, Bridget is now 23lbs and 76cm. I'm not sure where that exactly falls on a size chart but I'd say she's a pretty big girl :) She had 3 shots and cried a bit (unlike the boys who almost never said boo), but she wasn't too bad. She seemed fine at bedtime so no problems yet. Let's hope for a good night!
