Birthday Par-tay

Last Sunday we celebrated Addie's birthday with family and friends. Jeremy was very sick. He got sick on Saturday morning (a day after I was finally feeling like myself) and could hardly get out of bed. I've never seen him that sick. We both haven't been this sick since before we were married. I guess that is what happens when a little one brings home germs from daycare. Jeremy managed to come for most of the party but stood at a distance. So sad! We still had a great time celebrating our daughter's first year 0f life.

The cake eating was very anti-climatic. Addie was so dainty and prim and proper. It was cute and funny! I think using the church's high chair didn't help because there was a big gap between her chest and the tray. She spent a lot of time picking off crumbs from her lap. Jeremy's sister, Tiffany, made the cake and it was delicious! We ate, opened presents and visited. It was a great afternoon.

I took Addie to the doctor on Monday for her one year check-up. Addie had been a little fussy before then and somewhat at the doctor's office. She ended up testing positive for strep. Ugh. She actually has acted pretty well despite having strep throat. She acted fine at her party and on Monday morning. I think we caught it early. Everything else looked good. Addie weighed 19 lbs. 5 oz. (20%) and was 29 in. (50%).

My birthday was Tuesday. Jeremy stayed home with Addie since she couldn't go to daycare and he still wasn't feeling great. They both were feeling better last night. Jeremy and I had sushi (yummy) and he gave me roses (ahh!). It was a nice evening despite our circumstances.

Enjoy the pictures and videos below from the birthday celebrations. Hope you have a great week! We're disinfecting this house and praying for SPRING! :)

Jeremy was so sick he didn't want to touch her. They were pointing to each other. Pretty cute!

"Why is everyone singing to me?"

She picked off all the little flowers one-by-one and ate them. So dainty!

She grabbed a big hunk and we thought she was then going to shove the whole piece in her mouth. Instead she just took bites from the piece. Such a princess!

"This is pretty good!"

"Try some of this Uncle Dave"

In her new wagon from Grammy and Grandpa

"Thanks Aunt Jenny and Uncle Anthony for the tambourine. My parents are going to love this!"

Although he was sick Jeremy still had a sense of humor. We wanted Chad to take a picture of us and Chad said, "Let's take it up against the wall." Very funny, Jeremy.

The best picture we could get...Jeremy sick and Addie more interested in her ribbon. :)

She absolutely HATED the party hat! Our birthday girl...
The first video is from Addie's daycare party, the next two are from the party and the last is with her favorite balloon (you also get to see her gimp crawl). :)
