Ivy's First Birthday

Technically this was not actually on her first birthday, but this was the little family celebration we had when I got back from Florida. I don't have pictures of her actual birthday, because my mom's camera was out of batteries. :( I felt so bad about missing it, but hopefully having several parties made up for it. ~LOL~ We're planning a big cookout celebration for her in a couple of weeks, too.

Teaser: Ivy learned how to say "Cheese" on her birthday. She hasn't quit yet.

This is a giant inflatable sword, since Eden already had an inflatable sword. We didn't know it was giant, though. Now they just fight over the big one.:

A hippo ball pit/swimming pool/sandbox (that did not come with as many balls as they had pictured on the cover of the box *growl*):

Birthday (cup)cake (after the first tentative taste):

Ivy still cheesing it (my favorite of the pics, by far):

And because I'm a dork and I just really like this picture, me visiting the ocean on my drive home :P :

Thank you so much! We have a matching picture of Eden's 1st birthday (red icing), but alas, that was before we had a digital camera. :) I know they're birthday requisites. And when Ivy tried her cupcake, BOY was she in a good mood ALL DAY afterwards! She gave hugs & kisses all day long!

LOL, you'd think sugar was good for their moods or something.. ;)

I hope you get a chance to see them! They're precious (not that I'm biased or anything...)

Thank you so much! I'm glad you enjoyed the pics, and I'll pass on the happy birthday to Miss Ivy. :)

Happy birthday to Ivy!! i think nadia's hair is gonna be similar in color to ivy's. not as bright as josh and eden's but still red(ish) none-the-less. ^_^

and the beach pic isn't any dorkier than any number of pics i've taken of me.. ^_~

I'm glad someone else sees the red in Ivy's hair! It really showed up in those pictures. I've been saying it since she was born (I could see an orangey tint in the sunlight), but everyone else insists it's light brown. It's really starting to come out now, though!

I love the pool pic & the icing picture. Don't you just love it when little ones discover a new word? Such innocence at it's finest.
Aug. 24th, 2006 01:04 am (UTC)
I know! It's been melting my heart all over the place. I can't help but get the camera out when she starts begging for it, though. Already such a ham! (I don't know where she gets it from...)

Wooohoo!!! I"m home and got em! What an adorable baby!! She's got a gorgeous big sister and an amazing/beautiful mom! One lucky girl!

*blush* Thank you so much! I'm so glad you think so.

*giggle* Very cute! I have a picture of Justin with chocolate icing spread from ear to ear for his first birthday. I agree it is a "must have" picture for first birthdays. The first cupcake picture would make such a great icon for you. I am glad you guys had a good time.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY little Miss Ivy!!
Aug. 24th, 2006 01:08 am (UTC)
I was hoping to make a new Ivy icon in honor of her birthday. I just have to find the time. :P Although, I'm not as good at making them as you are. lol

Thank you so much! I will happily pass on your birthday wishes, too.

That icing is SO ORANGE.

That little girl with the red curls, that must be Eden? She is gorgeous. I bet she looks so striking in pale yellow. Man oh man, I always thought it would be cool to have a little curly redhead, and you nailed it!
Aug. 24th, 2006 04:51 am (UTC)
Yes, that's Eden. And thank you so much! We definitely lucked out with our girls. Eden gets her looks from Daddy, though. And you're so right about the yellow - she got a new yellow sundress when Ivy got all her presents, and she just looks adorable. I'll try to get some more pictures up. :) There's lots of both of them back in my archives, too. I've been picture-happy since I finally got a digital camera for Christmas last year!
Aug. 24th, 2006 02:15 am (UTC)
Yay and happy birthday to the dear little one Ivy! It just doesn't get much more precious than that! :D

And kuddos for you, too!!! What a great smiley picture, and a nice thing to do for yourself...good that you know when you deserve a nicety, too.
Aug. 24th, 2006 04:49 am (UTC)
Thank you! I'm glad to know I'm not the only one gooshed by precious. lol

I did have a wonderful, healing experience when I went to the beach. I was looking forward to it *so* much...until the evil police officer pulled me over and gave me the most whopping ticket in the history of driving! I knew I should have skipped it and came straight home to my girls. :P I did have a great time playing in the ocean for a little while, though. I hadn't been there in 12 yrs.

i love the pictures!

and somehow, (i think it's under the influence of my perverted literature teachers) the sword looks kind of phallic >.
Aug. 24th, 2006 12:26 pm (UTC)
Thank you! And no, you're right, it looks pretty phallic. That's why I made sure to specify what it was. ;)
Aug. 24th, 2006 09:48 am (UTC)
Happy Birthday to the cute kiddie!
Aug. 24th, 2006 12:27 pm (UTC)
Thank you very much!
Aug. 24th, 2006 01:07 pm (UTC)
Such cuteness!
In every picture.
Aug. 24th, 2006 01:12 pm (UTC)
You're such a sweetheart. Thank you!
