Lydia's Birthday

Okay so its been over a month since Lydia's 1st birthday....I'm getting there, I'm getting there. I made her a yummy, yet ugly looking cake. Carrot cake with cream cheese frosting. I didn't make it until late in the day so we didn't have it until 9pm. haha. Regardless it was a hit. A few things about our little sissy.

- She loves music and lets you know it as she shakes her hips and waves her hand. A little story: We were at church 2 weeks ago and Matt had to take a cranky Lyd out of Sacrament mtg. When he came back with a sleeping Lydia the special musical number was just starting. As soon as the 2 violins began Lydia's arm went bezerk, waving all around (the sign for music in ASL is a hand wave back and forth). Yes, she was still asleep. At least for the first minute. Funny girl.
- She loves juice and will go crazy every time she sees me pull out a juice box.
- She loves torturing her big brother by following him around and stealing his toys. Luke then runs to me crying saying Lyd took something from him. ;)
- She claps her hands and does the Indian chant.
- She flirts with anyone and everyone by squinting her face and cheesing.
- She does the most intense army crawl you have ever seen! She doesn't want to give it up because it gets her places FAST. So she doesn't walk yet, or even stand by herself. In time.
- She's the BIGGEST cuddler you have ever seen. Anyone who picks her up she'll immediately put her head down on their shoulder and cuddle. LOVE IT! Both my kids were cuddlers.
- She loves crawling up the stairs...had a few falls too but she still does it. And when I tell her to get down she just cheeses at me. haha.
- Can entertain herself with anything. Luke could never do this so I'm loving it.
- Has now begun to love looking at books. Although, she's a book ripper. Darn it.

So that's our little girl. We love her to death! Happy belated Birthday baby girl!

She dug into it a little prematurely. Can you see the little finger marks in the frosting at the top.
