Sydney’s Birthday Party

Well, I officially have a one year old now so, hopefully my life will settle a bit…at least till she starts walking! LMAO

I have been so busy over the last few weeks with her birthday party (a nice intimate gathering for her and 40 of her closest family and friends! LOL) that I have had ZERO computer time.

We had Sydney’s party on Saturday and it was great. She was an absolute doll even though she didn’t pass out for a nap till about 5pm. The party was at 1pm but we spent the morning in the party room getting the food prepared, the tables layed out etc. etc. Syd crawled around the whole time and made a royal mess of herself! LOL Thankfully, I hadn’t put on her party outfit so, it was as easy as a wipedown and re-dress right before the party started.

I didn’t get many pics at the party because I was busy in the kitchen putting out the munchies, cleaning that up, putting out the food, cleaning that up and then finally putting out the coffee and dessert (WHEW) but, I did manage a few:

Her cake:

Her smash cake:

Taking a small taste and wondering why everyone was staring at her so intently:

She ate her cake very daintily at first:

Quite the little lady!

Then, after everyone STOPPED staring and went off to get their own dessert, she started to get into it:

and then once she started, there was NOOOO stopping her:

LOL All in all it was a great day! She made out like a little bandit and has a room full of new toys and a closet full of some great new clothes.

We also got her 1 year pics done last week and had the prints done for the party:

I am soo pleased with the way they turned out. Sorry about the quality but these are scans of the prints! πŸ™‚

I will have some more pictures later this week once I get them all resized and uploaded! πŸ™‚

We also had Sydney’s 12 month appointment today and she now weighs in at 17lbs 9oz. Not a HUGE growth from her last appointment but, the doc is happy with her developement and the fact that she is hitting all of her milestones. All of her results came back from her bloodwork and all is normal. I guess she is just a petite little thing. She had her 12 month shots today as well and she handled them like a little trooper. She screamed bloody murder after the first shot (her MMR – Measels, Mumps, Rubella) which is supposed to sting quite a bit but, she settled pretty quickly and was a happy camper on the ride home. She passed out for her afternoon nap shortly after I got her home and slept till about 4:45. She was a touch cranky after her nap so, I think the area might have been tender. She also felt a bit warm to me before I put her down for the night so, I gave her another dose of Tempra and she seems to be ok now (I just checked on my sleeping sweatheart a few minutes ago). We shall see how she does tomorrow!

Well, I am off for some pre-bed snuggle time with my honey!



  1. Suzie- looks like the party went really well!! Syd’s 1 year pictures turned out so well. I got Vanessa’s done today so I should have some to post for tomorrow. We go for the needles tomorrow too…I just hope V can handle them as well as Syd did. Get ready for year #2 with your baby girl- it just gets better and better.

    • It was fantastic and lots of fun (work)! HA HA

      Glad to hear that V’s shots went so well!!!

  2. Wow – I didn’t realize how blond she’s gotten. Looks like she had a great birthday. I’m sure that the coming year will be as wonderful for you guys as the last one has been!

    • OK, finally getting caught up on my journal and comments! πŸ™‚

      It is amazing to me how MUCH her hair has lightened from when she was born. It was SOOOO dark back then that I figured she would have really dark hair like me and her daddy but, I guess her genetics have a different plan!

      Poor Pat…light hair and blue eyes….I sense many sleepless nights in his future! LOL

  3. LOVE the pictures, Sue!! They turned out so well!!

    Sounds like her appt went really well. Way to grow, Syd. πŸ™‚

    • Thanks Dane.

      I am FINALLY going to post some more pictures from her party today and then some of the TONS of pictures that we have taken since then of our little one year old!

  4. Great picture’s Sue!!! She looks like she enjoyed her cake! Her 1 year portraits came out beautiful!! πŸ™‚

    • Nicole!!!! πŸ™‚

      • Hey Nicole! Thanks…we were soo pleased with the way the pics turned out as well.
