Here’s the first batch of Paige’s birthday photos. Only a month and 3 days late!
For Paige’s initial birthday celebration (on her birthday, as opposed to her bigger celebration which was 4 days later) Liam and I made chocolate chip cookie cupcakes. He helped measure, mix, stir and decorate.
Getting ready for the icing and sprinkles:
Making sure they weren’t poisonous:
They passed muster!
The tongue of self satisfaction:
The birthday girl, her birthday goods, and her brother. Taking a bite out of her hand.
It may have taken him a full year…
…but I think Liam’s starting to get the hang of this whole big brother thing.
“You’re gonna let me eat those?!”
Getting ready to make a wish:
Blowing out the candle (with a little help from Liam and Daddy):
“That was it?”
Getting down to business:
Birthdays are so much fun!
Testing the waters:
Getting into the swing of things:
A little help from Daddy:
Not so sure…
“What is this on my tongue?”
“Oh, I see how this works!”
The tongue of utter concentration:
Things really got rolling at this point:
The key is double-fisting.
And this is the point in the post where I admit to being incapable of picking out just a few pictures and proceed to post 8,032 almost identical photos in a row. But I ask you: With this face how am I supposed to choose?
The many (chocolatey) faces of Paige:
“Wow! Look at that tummy!”
“But no tummy is ever too full for chocolate, right?”
Liam enjoyed himself as well:
You can’t tell, can you?
“Whatcha got there, Mama?”
I warned you about the lack of editing, didn’t I?
And again I ask you: With a face like this?
How am I supposed to choose?
…but never too tired for a silly face.
Ready to be hosed down:
“Dirty? Who? Me?”
And after being doused with a giant cup of water…
…our Sweet Baby Girl’s first birthday came to a close.
Next up? The party!
