Here she is on the balance beam. It's a bit hard to balance with that belly pulling her forward :)
She loves to be up high in the air and it's a good workout for me!
Who doesn't love bubbles???
This is Julianne's playgroup buddy Hazel chasing our neighbor Andrew. She wanted to hug him so badly and she just kept chasing him around. It was adorable!
This was our attempt to capture all of the kiddos in one picture. We failed but it is most of them.
And she caught her man.....
The birthday girl and her daddy
Having fun on the air track
And a rare photo of the 3 of us
Hazel giving the rings a try
Our adorable neighbor Kendall jumping to her mommy
Tickles from mommy
She was not very excited about the hat
Diggin' right in (she's a pro now)
She got one eyebrow with frosting so daddy added some to the other for good measure...
I'm not sure why I thought hot pink icing would be better than regular pink!
Who couldn't love that face?
The cutest mess ever!
The cake turned out great!
Apparently, she thought she looked pretty funny with pink stained skin!
My parents came all the way here for her party and my mom took the bulk of the pictures at the party which was so helpful because I could focus on having fun instead of on taking pictures. Here's one of the few pictures my mom was actually in instead of being behind the camera.
My mom took this photo as Julianne was watching out the window as people were leaving. It is my favorite picture from the day and quite possibly one of my favorite ever. It's amazing how a photo can just capture her personality so perfectly. Thanks mom!
A big thank you to all of our friends who came to the party - we had a blast! The only thing missing was my brother's family. They were planning to come and then had to cancel the trip because my youngest niece got an ear infection and could not fly. We missed you guys but we'll see you next month at her second 1st birthday party in Bakersfield! I promise this is the last birthday post until then......
