Here is our Bday girl. She showed up a little late to her party due to a late nap. She had a grand entrance with her whole party waiting. A friend of mine made her the cutest leopard tutu to wear for her big day...THANK YOU JODEE!

KT, Me and the cake

We celebrated with Spritzers...of course. I celebrated with a spritzer the day Audrey was born and I'll celebrate Audrey's Birthday every year with one. It's our Birthday tradition.

Audrey is a pro at opening presents. She LOVED everything she got. A HUGE thanks to everyone for all the wonderful presents. Audrey is so busy with all her new toys.

Audrey gave her new clothing a hug every time she opened up clothing items. It was so funny...she was raised to appreciate cute clothes!

I purchased Audrey's cake from Rossmoor Pastries...My FAV. bakery. I designed it myself and I was so happy with the way it turned out.

Audrey got a mini cake to match for herself. It was HYSTERICAL to see her eat it. She put her face into the cake and ate right off the cake. She had her fists full of cake and didn't want to let it go so she put her face into the cake to continue eating.

She shopped around with her buddy Ava
Audrey usually hates when I sing to her at night while I'm putting her to bed. On her bday night she was fighting sleep unusually hard and I started singing the Birthday song to her just for fun and she totally quit fussing and fell asleep to the Birthday song. I pretty much cried myself to sleep afterwards, it was just so randomly perfect. She is such a nut...I just love my crazy little Audie B. !!!!

Kellie...Thank you for the adorable pics!

I loved her first birthday party!! It was so special, not to mention how adorable she looked all in pink with the little tutu!! The cakes were adorable, and Audrey was especially cute when she figured out how to get a better bite of the frosting! She will love looking at all of these pictures as she gets older :)
