The birthday girl had the time of her life. She loves to be the center of attention (where in the world does she get that???), and she gladly went from one person’s arms to the next, entertaining everyone for hours. She was unimpressed with her first taste of birthday cake. It was her first real experience with sweets, and she wasn’t particularly interested. She even spit out the ice cream that my dad tried to feed her. I was thrilled! Maybe she will keep preferring fruits, veggies, and whole grains the rest of her life…

And if you haven't seen enough birthday pictures yet, here are a few from her actual birthday last Tuesday. We had a picnic in the park and played on the swings. We let her crawl around in the dirt, and she loved it!
Not loving the birthday hat....
