The One-Year-Old Big Girl!

Little Berlin was classically cute for her first birthday party. She danced for us, opened presents, and ate some cake. I took about 100 pictures, but I didn't want to bore you with 30 pics of her opening her presents. I picked my favorite picture of the whole night, this is post cake eating and just after we took off her chocolate covered shirt. A friend actually took this picture for us (thanks Larissa!!)

Berlin really wanted to share her cake with someone (or else she wanted someone to clean off her really dirty hand). So I obliged, of course, it was her birthday after all. She gave me lots of bites and also a few kisses.

This is pre-cake birthday girl, she was busy chasing balloons all over the house, but I managed to get her to look at me for a second.


I am kind of obsessed with getting a picture or two of Berlin sleeping. Berlin, now, is a good sleeper. She sleeps through the night for the most part, and we usually don't have to get up with her even if she does wake up. However, I spent the first eight months of her life getting up with her SEVERAL times a night. Some nights I would literally get up with her every hour. We also had the hardest time getting her to sleep. There was lots of crying, bouncing in the bouncy seat, lots of being held, and lots of feeding to sleep. She was also such a light sleeper that she would wake up at the slightest noises and then, instead of going back to sleep, she would cry. This is all behind us now. The biggest bummer of it all is that I LOVE watching my babies sleep. I still love watching Tryn sleep and she is almost three. I also love having pictures of my kids sleeping. They looks so peaceful, innocent, and beautiful. Needless to say, I have very few pictures of Berlin sleeping, at any age. So, I may have taken this in the car, while I was sitting in the driver's seat, and I can't say whether or not for sure the car was still moving...just really couldn't say...but I have a picture of her sleeping!!

And I couldn't resist adding this picture of all around cuteness. Berlin is talking on the phone here, airing out her diaper rash, in her real one-year-old-birthday-suit. I would love to post some pictures of the "whole" experience, but we need to stay G rated here :) B loves being nakie.
