Our last little baby celebrated her first birthday last Saturday. Audrey has declared that Elysse is no longer a baby and now classifies her as a "tot." Elysse spent the day doing what she does most days - including playing dinosaurs with Nathan. They make dinosaur noises to each other. Elysse really gets into it.
Here is Elysse growling like a dinosaur, tongue out and all.
The cake. Decorated sort of like her bedroom. For whatever reason I do most everything for her with purple polka dots. Don't judge the cake. It isn't the pretties thing you have ever seen but it sure did taste good!
Here are the long awaited cake pictures...
Sorry to disappoint everyone. Yes, she was a bit messy...but not bad. She even used her fork for part of the time. I love this picture after taking a big drink of milk she looks so satisfied.
Onto the gift...Aunt Sandy bought her a water table. It was an idea I came up with because Elysse loves taking baths and loves playing in TJ's water dish. This way she won't get into trouble...
Of course she was willing to share and Nathan and Audrey took over.
Daddy even joined in the fun. Nathan started throwing cups of water at Ryan's shirt, it was a good time had by all!
