Hannah, the Very Hungry Caterpillar!

We celebrated Hannah's 1st birthday today with a Very Hungry Caterpillar party! It wasn’t a very big party, just some of our closest friends, but it was fun and there was lots of food! At least, what was left after a very hungry caterpillar got to it! :) Hannah ate and ate, just as she always does, but wasn’t such a fan of her cake! Maybe she was too full from lunch, but she didn’t even take a bite!

I had a lot of fun making the decorations and getting everything ready. I was so excited to have a baby in the summer so one of us could actually have a party outside, but wouldn’t you know it, it rained. So inside it was.

She got some fun gifts, and had many little friends help her open them. It was a great day to celebrate Hannah and her cute little personality!

My parents will have the kids while we enjoy a week away, eating at all of our favorite places, I’ll be at Education Week at BYU and he’ll be doing whatever. I’m super excited to fly sans kids, and not worry about naptimes or diapers. Of course I’ll be worried about them the whole time, and I already miss them. Pray for me, my parents, and especially my kids!! Thanks mom and dad!!

Your post brought back memories of when my daughter was about that age. She received a huge stuffed-toy catapillar with one letter the alphabet on each segment of its body.

You will miss them, but it will be SO AWESOME being on your own again, just the two of you. Trust me on this.

I got some parenting advice the other day. It went something like this... The only thing you need to do to make your kid's childhood a success is to make them an extravagant birthday cake every year... I think you got that one covered. Someday I hope to be as cute as you :)
