It's my party and I'll eye stab you if I want to.

This is the kind of picture you get when you have a birthday party during the time that the birthday honoree is supposed to be napping. You get a kid who is overly tired, probably overwhelmed, coming down from a sugar coma, with cake in her hair and on her knee (?), half dressed, clutching her favorite gift of all the 58 awesome gifts that were opened, and still looking as cute as can be. (Come to think of it, I have many "day after college party" photos that are quite similar to this.)

Note: she isn't officially 1 yet. We still have 9 days, but you know, the Holidays.

(Stella, I'm going to make a concerted effort to not make this excuse every year. You most definitely deserve your own day apart from "the season" and we will celebrate your day on your day.)

Another note: 1?

Another another note: No this carpet is not in our house.

That was her favorite gift! And she did almost poke her mama's eye out, a couple times!

She was the perfect Birthday Girl! So sweet. So laid-back. And certainly so cute!

It was a fun afternoon. I'm glad we were able to share in the celebration!

I love 1 year old parties. She is so adorable!!!

...and the carpet. Awesome. I didn't notice it until your blurb. It reminds me of a bowling alley.

What a cutie-pie. I love that she lurved her balloon the mostest. And that she had cake in her hair. That's my kinda party girl. :)

Yep, it is official. Your daughter is too stink'n cute!

I was really bummed I couldn't be there and now that I see this picture I am even more bummed!

I don't believe she is almost 1. Nope. I thought I was just at your baby shower!

Love the 1 shirt!

This has to be movie theater or bowling alley carpet!

Happy Birthday Stella!
