We started off the day trying to get a couple pictures of the birthday girl, or "grill" as Tripp calls her.
Cupcakes from Grandma and Grandpa...
Drew took about a 4 hour nap and at 7:30 pm she finally woke up for her party. She is getting 4 teeth so I think that is what has been making her so miserable lately. She is still a happy baby despite her pain!
We got her all ready for her first birthday cake...
She liked all the singing and then I lit the candle...
She reached right for the flame and I grabbed her hand quickly and said "no!"...a bit too loudly I guess. It scared me and I didn't want her to burn her little finger.
What I did do is traumatize my one year old for the rest of the night.
She screamed like I have never heard her scream.
She wanted out of that chair and wanted that cake far away from her.
We would try her cake again a couple more times throughout the night and each time she would cry and try her best to get away from it.
She was still crying when we tried to switch gears and open presents.
She was a little miffed at Tripp too cause he kept trying to take over all her new loot.
Here she is opening her present from Liz, Cole and Reagan. She latched onto Liz for the rest of the night since she had not scared her half to death.
The next day Drew was finally in a good mood and able to enjoy all her new toys.
She loved them all!
All the kids did...
She was having a great day after her first birthday!
And then we tried the cake again...
Guess she'll be having wedding cookies when she gets married.
