Birthweek Part 5: A Grown-up Party

To round up the event marathon, we had a party for our local friends and family Sunday afternoon. We had a great turnout and so much fun celebrating with everyone.


Aunt S made an amazing cake, with sparkly "ribbon" and everything.

Ellie was running her first fever for the party (we're thinking it was from her 1 year shots), so she wasn't the best hostess but did really well given how poorly she must have felt.

She managed to have some intermittent fun when the Tylenol kicked in, and a couple of our guests took advantage of a clingy baby to get in some cuddle time.

Pete did all of the food, including making cookies, and most of the cleaning - both before and after. He's amazing.

Phew. What a week!

so sad she had a fever!! On the bright side, I am in love with her sweater/longsleeve shirt combo! So sunny and cute!

She is such a cutie pie! I hope she is feeling better after her shots and all of the events. :)
