Happy Birthday, Laura

My baby is now one year old!. I can't believe how fast the last year has flown by. Last night, when I was putting her to sleep, I got a little sad thinking that the first year of her life is over and I will never get to spend that time with her again. But, as cute as she was as a little baby, she is so much more fun now. I love seeing her gain her own little personality and learn how to do new tricks.

We celebrated her birthday with a little party with some of our friends.

One of the couples we invited over have a baby about the same age as Laura. It was fun watching them play together. Don't they look so cute in the party hats?

Laura had her own cake that we put on the floor. She had fun digging in to the frosting and licking it off her fingers.

This was the cake I made for Laura that the grown ups got to eat.

What a show! The birthday banner is amazing...great tradition to have. I especially like the fact that Peter is wearing a party hat. What a Dad won't do for a daughter.
Love the BRIGHT cake!!

Cool cake. Everything looked very cute! It is hard to believe that Laura is only 5 mo. older than Hailey.

That party looks like a ton of work. Homemade hats, right? Her birthday snuck up on me. Amazing!

Laura looks so beautiful! She looks older since last I saw her only two months ago! She has such beautiful eyes. I miss her.

I showed Stephen the first pic you posted and he said, Is that Candice and Peter? He didn't even recognize you cuz you look anorexic these days. In a good way :) Seriously though you look so skinny and gorgeous. Peter looks handsome too. You can tell him I said that.
