Lily is 1!!!!!

I can't believe my baby girl has turned 1! I just had her for crying out loud! She has even attempted to walk. I am pretty sure I am done having kids, but I am starting to feel sad as I watch my baby grow up. I have started to miss those early baby things - like their teeny little bodies nestled up against mine, their smell, middle of the night feedings, laying still while I change diapers, and the real crying - not the fake drama ones I get now. My Lily is sure teaching me a lot about little girls too and how they are sooooo different from little boys. She is definitely a little drama princess! She is just getting too big too fast.
Her birthday party was a lot of fun. Cortney BBQ'd some ribs and chicken and there was a lot of food to go with it. We all ate very well. Lily was funny with her cake. She would not touch it, nor did she even like it! I stuck her hand in the frosting hoping that it would encourage her, but it just made her upset. She did not like how the frosting felt! I didn't feel too sad about her not making the normal giant frosting mess that usually goes along with a one year birthday!
