One Year Older and Wiser, Too!

Chloe turned one year old on Friday, January 23rd. It is so hard to believe that we have a one year old! It just seems like yesterday that we were bringing her home for the hospital. She has been such a wonderful baby and we feel so blessed to have her in our lives.

For her birthday we had family over to our clubhouse for dinner and dessert. For dinner we had nachos, and as you can see Chloe quite enjoyed eating the guacamole. Her face looks disgusting, but she had a good time.Ever since Christmas, Chloe has loved tearing into presents and her birthday was no exception. She got some cute clothes, fun books, an adorable "little people" Noah's Arc and we got her a toy kitchen. She loved it...and so did all the other kids at the party.
Then it was time for the cake. Most parents wonder if their kids will like "going to town" on their first birthday cake or if they will want nothing to do with it. Well, as you can see in the picture, Chloe loved it! Aaron describes it as, "You know she had a good time when there was frosting and smashed cake on her bum!"We spent the rest of the night hanging out with our family and playing with toys. Thank you to everyone who came and for all the great gifts!

For some reason Chloe's Grandpa and Grandma Searle is never mentioned but we want you all to know that Chloe loves us and she is a joy in our life. Tues. I got a kiss that I didn't even ask for. We also loved her party and she even shared her cake with me. I have a picture to prove it.
