Kaitlyn’s First Birthday!

I can’t believe a year has gone by already.  It’s hard to believe she’s gone from this to this…

Kevin had to work, so Kaitlyn and I hung out around the house together.  That evening, we opened presents.  It took Kaitlyn a little while to get the hang of the wrapping paper, but she got the idea by the time she opened her last present.  Kaitlyn was so fascinated by the wrapping paper we only got her to look at the camera once!  In fact, she loves the wrapping paper so much, she’s still playing with it 2 days later.  I almost feel guilty about throwing it out tomorrow!

After we opened presents, we met some friends at Texas Roadhouse for dinner and cake.  We love this restaurant.  They have great pulled pork, plus since you are supposed to throw the peanut shells on the floor, I figured they wouldn’t notice a little cake!

The cake was a “cupcake cake”.  I realized after I ordered it, I should have had the first fishing pole I made for the Fair shipped up here as a matching decoration.  Apparently, I’m really into the whole pink and purple thing!

I had to stick my finger in the icing and feed it to Kaitlyn a couple of times before she realized she could eat it.  Then she started copying me with one finger in the icing.  After she realized I wasn’t saying “no” and was actually encouraging her to eat it, she stuck both hands in the cupcake and smashed down, then proceeded to raise her hands and get some in her hair! 

Thanks to my friend Jim for taking the pictures below so Kevin and I could concentrate on Kaitlyn…
