Teddy Bear Picnic Party

We had a little birthday party this past weekend with some of our closest friends and family. I have one very special, very loved teddy bear so Mom thought it would be perfect to have a Teddy Bear Picnic themed party for my second birthday. It was a ton of fun planning the details around this theme!

Mom found the idea for a beehive pinata in an issue of Country Living magazine. It was definitely a hit! ;)

My friends also got to take home a furry friend and bear sucker. :-)

We had a story time where my Nana read the Teddy Bear Picnic Story.

And then it was time for me to open my gifts. I loved all the attention and special gifts from my friends and family. :-)

Terrific Two's!

Today is my birthday! Mom took a few photos of me at home this morning. Here are a few favorites.

Here's one she took at Jamison Square the other day.

I had a wonderful evening celebrating with family. :-)

I blew out the candles all by myself this year!

My Favorite Things

Now that I'm a big eighteen month old, I have formed quite a personality. I have no problem letting people know what I like and don't like. Here are just a few of my favorite things...

I love my little bear. I have to have him with me when I sleep so Mom is a little worried about losing him. He pretty much always stays in my crib for this reason.

I LOVE bathtime. Especially when it involves bubbles. :-)

I love water in general, so I can often be found playing at the sink.

I adore our cat, Allie, but I am still learning to play nice. When I am not pulling her tail, trying to pick her up, or hugging her a little too tight, we get along just fine.

I love to read books and, of course, I love "Jo Jo" too. Now that my brother is learning to read, hopefully he'll be able to read to me soon! I would love that!

I love my Dada very much. When he gets home from work, I can't wait for him to eat dinner so we can play!

Tea Party Fun

It's been pretty cold and yucky, so Mom set up a little tea party for us inside the other day. I got dressed up in a very pretty dress and Mom was able to put my hair (all of it!) in pigtails. So fun! Here are a few photos of my first tea party. I loved it!

My brother, Jonah, was kind enough to stop by for a cup of tea!

Allie stopped by for a cup too!

I had to invite my very favorite stuffed bear to the party!

Can't wait for my next tea party!

One Year Already??

Okay, technically I am fourteen months, but who's counting (besides Mom)? Here are a couple of cute photos Mom was able to get of me recently.

I am a girl on the go!

Some fun facts about me:

1. I am a walker! I took my first steps just before I turned one, but really got moving at 13 months.
2. I am a climber. I will climb the stairs, up onto chairs (and sometimes tables) and into any basket, box, etc. I can get my little body into.
3. I am a dancer. Sometimes I just twist my body to the music, but other times I get my hips going too!
4. I can say "thank you," "hi," "bye, bye," "uh-oh," "dada," "mama," "baby," "yeah" and "cheese" whenever Mom has the camera out. I also sign "done" when I'm finished eating or just want out of my high chair.
5. I LOVE to look at books, especially touch and feel books. I would spend all day making my mommy read me books, if she'd let me. :)
6. I love to cuddle and give kisses. I will give kisses to pretty much anyone who asks for one!
7. My family LOVES me to pieces!

My ten and eleven month photos

And from month eleven...

My First Birthday Bash

My family threw me a pretty sweet birthday party this year. While it's true I've got none to compare it to, I did thoroughly enjoy myself and hope my future birthdays are just as nice!

Mom had fun with a vintage theme, using lots of pink because, well, girls like pink. She made these pom pom flowers from tissue paper and hung them from the ceiling above the buffet which showcased some favorite pictures Mom has taken of me this past year.

Here's a close-up picture of the pom pom flowers.

Mom and her mother, my Nana, also made this banner made of vintage fabrics.

There was enough fabric to make matching flags. Mom and Nana also made a couple banners out of paper doilies to go with the vintage theme. Easy and cute!

For food we had several salads, munchies in the pretty white footed bowls, and sandwiches. The kids had cheese or PBJ sandwiches and the adults got to make their own, just the way they liked it.

For dessert we had lemon cupcakes with lemon buttercream frosting. Yum! For the recipe, visit Your Homebased Mom.

I had a great time opening presents...

Reading cards...

Taking a closer look at my gifts...

and playing with friends.

Thanks to everyone who helped make my first birthday so special!
