This little girl is starting to have her own look. You know how there are times when it just seems like a baby is growing into her own skin? A little less baby...a little more kid. This happened recently. Just in time for her 1st birthday yesterday!
Family came for lunch and Strawberry Shortcake. (our kids don't get much sugar until they are 2, so Strawberry Shortcake has been the 1-year birthday tradition. It's the biscuit-type variety, not the sponge-cake variety.)
The same candle that has lit up three birthdays over the years...
Lunch menu: Ham and Swiss Stromboli, Italian Stromboli, Gogo's Cabbage Salad, Veggies with Grandma Meyer's Dip, and Fruit.
Wow...this is the most sugar I've had in this mouth yet.
Malia was excited to give Aliza the needlepoint she made with the kit she got for Christmas.
I thought it was pretty sweet. It will be hanging in Aliza's room soon.
See what I mean about growing into her own person?
She is looking different!
She loves to be with her sisters and do whatever they are doing. And Malia and Josie are so good at playing with her! Their current favorite activity is to all crawl around the hallway (it goes full circle) "chasing" each other. Squeals of delight from all three.
Happy Birthday Aliza Belle!
