A Pretty Little Party

We had so much fun celebrating Sylvie's first birthday.  We just did our own little family party.  Rhone helped me make treats for her party.  He was so dissapointed that we were making the cake, but didn't get to eat any of it.  I even made a tutu for Sylvie.  We picked out some of her favorite things for meals. Our little lady LOVES jamba juice smoothies.  Its how she learned to drink out of a straw, so of course she got one for lunch.  We spaced the celebration out so it would work with her nap schedule- which made for a whole day of celebrating.  She was also blessed with gifts, cards, and calls for family and friends all over the country.

Our Sylvie girl is one smiling girl.  She will smile for anyone, and you don't even have to work for it.  She is very good hearted and determined.  She is not too much of a snuggler.  When she is tired she doesn't want to be rocked.  She will lean for her crib when you walk into her room.  Her first "word" was Ace.  She is very fascinated and excited about animals. 

Sylvie is near the 50th percentile for height, but she is light weight.  She is only in the 8th percentile for weight- so we are trying hard to get some weight on her.  She loves fruits, veggies, cheese and meats.  She is not much of a bread eater.  We love watching her walk around and explore the world.  It feels like she has always been apart of our family and we are all so blessed to have her in our family.

 Team work!
