Corinne's 1st birthday party

Corinne is 1 today! We had a small party for her with our playgroup this morning.

Her party was bird themed. These are some jelly bean nests that the kids took home with them.

These were the bird cake pops the kids enjoyed at the party.

Barrett enjoyed playing with baby Caroline before everyone else got here.

Corinne looked so cute in her cupcake pants!

Here we are lighting Corinne's candle. Barrett helped blow it out since Corinne doesn't really understand that concept yet.

She started off by digging right in.

The kids all enjoyed her birdie cakes.

She didn't eat much of it, but she enjoyed flinging her cake around!

She was a huge mess by the time it was all over!

Grandma gave her a bath and then we opened presents.

She loves her new book!

And her new cup!

Late February pics

We have been having fun this month, despite the fact that one of the kids has been sick since November! It's mostly Corinne that's sick, but Barrett throws some illnesses in there just for good measure, I guess. He's home sick from preschool today due to a minor virus of some sort that involves lots of coughing and a fever. Corinne currently is pretty healthy, but she does have an ear infection. Ugh. Anyhow, here are some pictures from this past month or so:

We have a very similar picture of Barrett in this same cabinet.

Corinne thought she was such a big girl when we turned her walker into a ride-on toy!

Corinne also thought she was a big girl when we put her in Barrett's cozy coupe. Now that's all she wants to do when we go outside.

Barrett and Corinne love having breakfast together.

I was trying to take a picture of Barrett playing happily in his new bed, but instead I got a picture of EVIL BARRETT! I hope everyone believes me when I tell crazy stories about him now!

Here's the pic I was trying to get--Barrett playing on the top of the bed and Corinne playing underneath.

Barrett and Buddy (the dog) have been spending lots of time outside together lately.

They love spending time together!

Barrett was running to bring me a flower. He can be sweet sometimes!

This is why Momma should not trust Barrett alone with (washable) paint.
