Maddies 1st Birthday and First ear infection!!

I can't believe my baby is one. It seems like just yesterday that we brought her home from the hospital. My family came done last Monday night to spend the week with us and to help get ready for Maddies first Birthday party. The theme was farm animals, because that is Maddie's favorite toy. We had a blast at the birthday party and we had a fun week playing with my family. Maddie enjoyed spending the week with her three cousins: Evan, Luke and baby Wyatt. We were sad to see them go home yesterday. We will miss you Grandma Gail, Aunt Amanda, Uncle Ross, Aunt Carrie, Uncle Nick, Cousins Evan, Luke and Wyatt. Maddie also had to go to the doctor on Friday because she kept running a fever. They told us she had a ear infection. I was so sad that she was sick on her first birthday, but sometimes you just have to roll with the punches. Luckily she is feeling better now. Here are some pictures from Maddies party. Enjoy. Cousin Skyler hitting the big boys pinata, it was a pig.

Evan and Luke getting candy and toys from the little kids pinata, it was a horse.

Maddie and her new toy from Grandma Gail!

She loved her new baby doll!!

Maddie opening presents, she was exhausted at this point.

I think she loved the cake, but hated getting dirty!!

Yum, Yum!!

Maddie's own little cake to eat!

The cake turned out great!!

Maddie got a new swing set from Grandpa Roy and Grandma Ann. We will for sure be spending alot of time out in the back yard now. It was love at first sight!!

Maddie's new ball pitt, which she also loved.

That last chair picture is precious! Don't you love how many times you have to attempt a pose to get it just right?? At least you got it though! It looks like Maddie had a GREAT 1st birthday!

She is just so pretty, and looks so happy! Where did you get that cake? Did you make it, it is amazing. I still haven't decided about Harrison's first party. His birthday is next week so I better figure it out right! Take Care, Julie
