First Birthday

What a weekend.  Petunia had three days of birthday.  Friday, on her actual birthday she had a birthday pancake complete with a candle and opened a few gifts.  Then mom and dad went out to breakfast at this super cool spot called Snooze and Petunia stayed home with gma and gpa.  Mom got a gift too, this amazing camera fron Nikon.  I LOVE IT!  I so need to take advantage of the free photography classes and learn all about the camera and photo taking in general.  It was so nice to use for the big day-amazing photos! 

We spent the rest of the day Friday preparing for the big Saturday BBQ, thank goodness for my parents always willing to pitch in and help out with anything

Saturday dawned a beautiful day.  We had tons of friends and family for the BBQ including two sets of grandparents, one set of great-grandparents, aunts and uncles, a hand full of mommy and daddy’s friends and a smattering of kids.  It was a perfect day and Petunia enjoyed her birthday cupcake-mostly the frosting.

Sunday we had a small brunch with family and opened gifts,  she really made out pretty well.  Of course I am partial to the gifts we gave her and am pleased to see she loves them.  We bought her this from Radio Flyer, thinking it might help her walk and sure enough she caught right on and away she went.  Then I fell in love with this little lady bug and couldn’t resist adding it to her growing pile of presents.  Not sure she is quite ready for it yet, but she’ll get there.  She loved the antennas right away.

I’m thankful so many made the trip here to celebrate with us especially with gas prices these days.

Today, Petunia had her 12 month check up and the Dr. said she looked excellent.  Nothing better than hearing that.  She weighed in at 21 pounds and 31 inches tall. She got 4 shots but took them like a champ, oh, there were tears, but she got over them quickly and was soon ready play.

After the Dr. check up we checked out a condo at one of Matt’s projects. 

I think we will be moving…

  1. Just saying hi – been awhile – Happy Birthday to E, and check out for your new toy! Let’s chat soon.

  2. What a fabulous weekend! Sounds like you made it absolutely perfect for her! Great toys too…she’s a very lucky little girl. Keep us updated on the moving deal. I really hope and pray that everything works out with that. You don’t need to worry about that stuff. I’m glad you had such a wonderful weekend.

  3. Sounds like Petunia had a GREAT 1st birthday (and you survived it, as well!). I hope the move isn’t totally a bad thing, I know you were talking about possibly losing your house — I hope it hasn’t come to that yet. Keep us posted. I’ll be thinking about you and your family.

  4. How fun! I really want to check out snooze!

  5. I was almost thinking of calling myself Petunia. I too want this long, drawn out, happy, chock-full of loving relatives and friends birthday. Sounds like a great time was had by all. I’ll be expecting the same kind of to-do on my behalf when I meet up with you sometime in August. 😉 Got your message. Will let you know about travel to Denver as soon as I cement my plans. Congrats on the milestone with the baby (she still is you know).
