First Birthday Review

Yesterday sweet Cordelia turned one. She also has a little cold so she was a bit needy, but she tried so hard to enjoy herself and I believe she did in spite of a couple of teary break downs. We had a small family party of root beer, cake and present opening. Here is a breakdown...

Cordelia and her Grandma

Sad about cake
The cake experience was traumatic.

Opening a gift
She went and grabbed her own gift and started opening while we were all eating cake. Apparently she grasped the concept.
