It has been one full week since the First Birthday debacle and she finally feels well enough to eat her cake, so we put a candle on it today sang to her (which she loved) and we had cake. It was hilarious at first because she didn't know what to do with it, We were trying to get her to just rip into it but she would only put her mouth on it and stare at us. She seemed to like cake.
This was one WILD week. It started with the sickness from the ear infection, now we think she has an allergy to cows milk, she has a bad bout of eczema on her back and cheeks, and throws up from it, So no more weening from formula to milk for now. She also does not like her milk from a sippy cup and the daycare wants her to have it that way, OH WELL again, to bad, she will not drink it that way, she sips it, then abandons the whole thing, if you then put it in a bottle she drinks it down till it's gone.
The next item, we have had a horrid beginning of separation anxiety, you parents know what fun that is. Everyone has been shocked because she's the kid that just LOVES to go to everyone. She did not want to be out of our arms thursday - yesterday. Today, she is her old self again. She always just bounces back quickly and gets on with life. I just LOVE that kid. I know she is gonna be a bad ass as a young adult and into adulthood, (excuse my use of the "A" word). But I truly believe she'll accomplish anything she sets out to do.

What a day! After cooking and prepping stuff all last night and today the one year old party is done and over, 2 hours of party for about 17 hours of work. FUN! The bad part, the kid didn't even get to go to her own party. YES, you read that right, she got a 102 fever after her nap and was in no mood to be bothered with parties. She was burning up, screaming and crying, I gave her some tylenol (the good thing since children's Tylenol is liquid she likes it and just drinks it). She felt better half an hour b4 the party ended so I decided to dress her and run her over to the park about 4 or 5 minutes away and that way the family and friends (some who drove very far and were so understanding) could at least see her, She was fine till we got there then the WHOLE crying thing started again.
We have been home for just over an hour and she's been Ok, playing with gifts right now. She did have a lil crying spell but that went away as she started opening presents, We are keeping a close eye on her tonight, I'm sure she's just teething, she's had flushed cheeks all week and her gums are red, but I am sure she if fine.
We love you little girl.
