Adelyn’s 1st Birthday

Thursday June 21st Adelyn turned 1! I have been planning for weeks to take that day off from work and just spend the day with her! We saw Daddy off to work and then got ready for the day, including a “Happy Birthday to me” shirt from Old Navy for Adelyn, and took a trip to Target to pick up a few things. IMG00508-20120621-0849

After Target Adelyn took her usual morning nap. When she woke up Kyle was home for a long lunch and we decided to go out to Wendys. Adelyn was such a little ham while we were there and was much more interested in waving and blowing kisses to everyone rather than eating!IMG00509-20120621-1206

She did end up sneaking in a few fries and tried out the chicken nuggets. She was not a fan of the chicken nuggets…but she did like the frosty at the end!IMG00511-20120621-1207

We spent a little more time with Daddy before he had to go back to work for some afternoon meetings and then we headed to the splash pad in town. We hadn’t been yet this summer (or ever)! I was surprised at how busy it was for the middle of the day, but I think a lot of it was daycare kids (which means little adult supervision). IMG_2461

At first Adelyn was almost more interested in watching the other kids rather than playing in the water, but that quickly changed and she had to check everything out!


We really had a good time, but the one bad part is that there were a lot of bigger kids who were RUNNING around! I ended up having to say something to them, I didn’t want them to fall, let alone knock my baby over! (I know…I’m a big meanie!)


We will definitely give it another shot! Love this sweet girl so much…and I was so happy to get to spend her birthday with her!


After the splash pad we stopped over at a co-worker/friend’s house who just had a baby. She also has an {almost} 2 year old. It was fun to watch Adelyn & Melora interact!


We tried to get a picture with all the girls…but just wasn’t working out, but I do love Melora’s face and poor baby Melina was being blinded by the sun!


The proud Mama of 2!! Congrats to Melissa & George & their new addition! It was fun seeing you guys again.



After leaving Melissa’s Adelyn was MORE than ready for a nap. So I got her tucked in and got to work on supper. My parents, Wendi, and Hayden joined us for Adelyn’s birthday supper! Hayden was more interested in eating Adelyn’s food than food from his Mama!


Supper was a group effort, Mom & Duane brought maidrites and we made veggies on the grill! Thanks to my Mom for the offer for supper and to come over & celebrate!


Once again Adelyn wasn’t sure what to think when we sang to her!


But once that candle was gone she didn’t waste anytime checking out that cupcake!


It just cracks me up how she went to the cupcake rather than bringing the cupcake to her mouth!


“This is good stuff!”


And she quickly started in the cake! I think the 2nd time around she was more experienced to know what to do!


Checking out the cupcake…


Must have passed the check ‘cause she shoved that whole thing in her mouth!


“Yum, Yum!”


Time for a bath!


After bath time she opened just a few gifts from us.


She actually did really well with ripping the paper to see what was inside.


We kept things simple and got her a puzzle (she doesn’t have any!), paci’s, and some orbit labels from Inch bug.


She also opened a few cards that she received in the mail on her birthday!


It was a wonderful day celebrating my sweet girl! I didn’t want to go to work the next day…I could get used to being home with her all the time!

Thanks to everyone who celebrated with us over the past week and made our baby girl’s first birthday special!


  1. I love so much about this post. I love that you took her birthday off to spend with her, and the splash park looks like a lot of fun! I love the way she ate the cupcake too, so funny!! And her reading her cards, it looks like she's really reading. Happy birthday to such a special little girl!

  2. What a fun day!! I'm glad you got to take the day off to spend with her!

  3. Sounds like a fun day was had by both the birthday girl and mama!
    -Where is the splash pad??
    -Love that her legs are crossed yet again in her chair, SO cute!!
    -Her cupcake looks yummy! I think she liked it!! ;)
    -You didn't wrap up the under armour attire?? Those were an awesome deal!!

    Adelyn is loved by so many! Can't believe she's 1 already!

  4. The splash pad is great, isn't it! We had a lot of fun when we took Arya. But, you are right- a lot of the bigger kids run and it makes us mommies nervous! I think it's great that you took her birthday off from work!

  5. Fun day! So glad you got to spend it with your sweet girl. and I love her pink Keens!!
