Happy Birthday, Elli Baby!

Happy Birthday, Elli Baby!
I am tired. This will not be long. Sorry! :)

We’ve all been sick this week. :( We got over our colds long enough to celebrate Elli’s first year on Thursday, September 9th! We were so grateful to all that came (G & G all the way from Ogden – what a treat!)

I am weaning Elli right now. It is not very fun. My body is going into shock a little bit. I’m really tired and worn out. But, I’m down to two feedings. Wish me luck on the rest!

Here is the week at a glance:

Dovy stuck his feet in the air.
Anjali came over and joined him.
And then Elli did, too!
She climbed all the way up and stuck her feet in the air.
This a picture of her toppling over, though…

Elli’s personal birthday cake.
Do you see where Anjali dug into it before
the party started?
I walked into the kitchen to find her with her own spoon and plate,
taking chunks out of the cake. hehe

This was to die for!

How I love her.

Anjali helped dress Elli up as a princess,
but didn’t want to wear the stuff herself.
Go figure.

Another diaper cake I did this week!
Single-layer style. :)

Here is a very rough start on my diaper cake website:

I’m excited to really get going with it!
