Sydney's 1st Birthday!

Sometimes it's hard to believe it's been a year since Sydney was born and other times, when I look through the thousands of pictures I've taken of her or the days when she's not her best, I think yup, we've been at this for a whole year. I wouldn't trade one day of it though. She's the best thing that has happened to Geoff and me.
We had a birthday party for Sydney up at camp and the weather couldn't have been any better. We managed to squeeze a beautiful day in between two rainy ones. Sydney's a lucky girl to have so many 1st, 2nd and 3rd cousins her age. She'll be able to grow up with them and have life-long friends. Here are some pictures from her party:

Her enormous birthday cake and believe it or not, there wasn't much left-over. It was a banana split cake. White cake with banana and raspberry filling and whipped cream frosting...mmmm.

Lighting her candles

Excited before digging in!

Mmmm... sugar.

I think she's had enough. She often gets this bitter/sour face when she can't bear to take another bite. Of course, most of what she ate was frosting.

She's getting so big, it's hard to believe that Avery is only 4 months behind her. I love the sour face, Avery does the same thing when she is eating something sweet. Can't wait to see you guys soon.
