Sunday we finally celebrated Cecily's 1st birthday with a party. It was a gorgeous day, not too hot, not too cold and we got to enjoy dinner underneath the new gazebo (our Mother's Day/Father's Day/Anniversary gift to ourselves). Cecily seemed to have a grand time, although that's pretty much how she is every day. She absolutely dug into her smash cake and we finally had to call it good about 30 minutes in - I think she would have kept going until it was gone otherwise. We finally wised up this time and stripped her down to her diaper and took her out of her high chair and let her eat on the lawn chair so she could be deposited straight into the bath when she was done and the chair and patio could be hosed off. That's definitely one advantage to spring/summer birthdays and we'll definitely plan on doing the same for the new baby next year. Cecily's fave birthday gift was her baby stroller/walker; she motors all over the house with it. So cute! Our baby girl is getting so big!!
