It's taken me a while to post this video, so I hope you enjoy it for what it's worth. Our timing was completely off and by the time we were ready to eat Isabel's birthday dinner, she was REALLY ready for bed. So she ended up crying for most of her birthday party. I guess it's a learning experience. We had fun, though. And we are so excited that our little girl is one. She's such a big girl now and can do so many big girl things. She can "talk", she walks around all the furniture, she knows how to manipulate her parents, she "reads" all her books and occasionally eats them and she's now refusing to eat the food that she doesn't particularly like.
Aside from the usual baby upsets, we feel so blessed to have our little Isabel in our lives. She is a delight to watch, especially when she waves goodbye and hello to Dallas. We just love her.
As an aside, we were kind of slack when it came to the birthday cake.... we bought some princess cupcakes and because we couldn't find a "number one" candle, Dallas bought the next best thing - a "number seven" candle!
