Just Playin'

Here are some shots of Elliana playing with her birthday toys. Sorry if I've been slacking off a little on the new pictures, but you can't be too made, as you've also been slacking on the comments. Except for Kathy, who is pretty much an All-Star and posts almost before I hit the submit button! Nice work!
Think I can climb up by myself?

And go down alone too! (Don't worry, I cropped myself out of that...)

Broom Broom, new bike!

Bubbles, bubbles, everywhere! Elliana loves her bubble maker from the Mathews. Yesterday she played out on the deck with Mommy and tried to catch them! Here are some shots:
I'll get you bubbles!
That tickles!

We had Elliana's birthday party on Saturday, and she had a great time. Lots of friends and family and some great food made it an awesome day. Thanks to everyone for coming! Here she is all dressed up (before ripping her hair bow out).
Pretty birthday hat!
Oh my, a cupcake just for me?!?!

Easter Egg Hunt

On Easter Sunday, Elliana did the Egg Hunt and Auntie Nadine's house. She loves getting the little chickies and eggs and putting them in her bucket. Here she is with her bunny hat!
Ohhh Mommy, that's a lot of eggs!
I'm getting that one first!
Pretty bow, pretty dress...

Easter Morning

Here are some shots from Elliana's first Easter morning. The bunny left her a trail of jelly beans to find her basket of prizes! She tried to eat every single one of them...
The book got her excited, she still loves books!

Oh boy, a pinwheel! She hasn't learned to blow air on it yet to make it spin...

Conehead Birthday!

Elliana had her first real ice cream for her birthday on Friday. She got a Conehead Sundae from Friendly's with Mommy, Daddy, Grampy and Grandma. I don't think that another human could enjoy food as much as Elliana enjoyed that ice cream. She dug right in with her hands, pinching vanilla ice cream, hot fudge and whipped cream between her fingers and putting it directly in her mouth. Then she skipped the hand shovel method and went directly to the cone, here are some pictures!
I forgot, she used a spoon too!
Best food ever!!!
Do you think he knows it's my Birthday?

Birthday Girl!

I can't even imagine that it's true, but Elliana is one year old today! The time has flown by, and it seems that she was just coming home from the hospital with us. It's been such a fun first year, and I've enjoyed updating the blog with new pictures and hearing from all of you. Here are some pictures of our little Easter Bunny playing out in the backyard!
Playing ball...
I'll get you Daddy...
...and you too Mommy!

A Day at the Park

On Sunday, Elliana went with Mommy and Daddy to play at Stage Fort Park. It was a very windy day, but she loved it there and we all had a lot of fun. We played on the swings, slides, see-saw, jungle gym, and walked over to the cannons to look out at the harbor. It doesn't get much better than that! Here are some shots from the day...
So much fun on the swings...
Quick, take my picture before I swing backward!
Rocking on the horse, oh boy!
Mommy and Elliana playing around the cannons...
