>We feel so blessed to be able to celebrate Leila’s first birthday. April 22nd came around a lot faster than I expected it to.
When I was a child my mom made each one of us birthday cakes every year on our birthdays. We got to pick what we wanted it to be and Mom would find the pan, buy it, bake it and decorate it. I wish I had some pictures of those cakes on my computer, but unfortunately I don’t. Well, in keeping with my mother’s birthday tradition, I decided to make Leila’s cake. I was pleased to find that the North Liberty library has TONS of cake pans that they are available to borrow. I borrowed a daisy cake pan, as well as a miniature daisy so that I could make Leila her very own cake to destroy.
Here is Leila’s cake….give me a break, this is my first birthday cake!

There are more pictures, but I didn’t want to overload 🙂 If you want to see them, let me know!
Leila had her 1 year check up yesterday with Dr. Powers. She weighed in 22 lbs and 14 ounces, 30 inches tall. 75%ile for both height and weight. Leila isn’t walking yet, I mean, why would you walk when you can just make mom and dad carry you, duh??!!?
I hope you enjoyed!
