Katryn is one. Holy cow! what happened to this past year? We threw her a party today, and we all had a blast. Like any other gathering that occurs with my family, there was loads of chaos. But it's always fun!

and like every type of gift-giving situation, she totally raked in the loot. I think she got more things for her birthday than she did for Christmas!! Spoiled li'l monkey! But like a good baby, she decided to let her cousins enjoy all the toys first. She's so good at sharing.

We even started the day off good, she woke up happy and playful, took two 1 1/2 hour naps during the day, and didn't cry while everyone was over! That was impressive considering we had about 15 adults, and about 10 kids running around our tiny little basement. But that's how I like things, full of chaos, where no-one will notice if you didn't mop your floor. Which I didn't. I thought about it though, and that counts for something in my book.

all in all, she had a good time I think. (she's sound asleep for that matter, and that counts!) not that she'll remember it, but I'll show her these pictures some day and embarrass the heck out of her. It'll be great!

Christmas was a hit for Katryn, she loved tearing (and eating) the wrapping paper. Contrary to what most people say about babies, she didn't care too much for the boxes. She just wanted us to put her gloves on her hands over and over again.

Now she brings us her socks and holds her hands out, waiting for us to put them on her hands. She's a silly child!
This toy is currently her favorite. She can't quite get the blocks onto the pegs yet, but she keeps trying, and stacks them up on the floor quite nicely! Smart baby!! (she gets that from me!)

The bubble wrap was also a hit. Couldn't make it pop (it would probably scare her if it did) but she drug it around the house with her all morning!

And here she is being a sheep in the Christmas Pagent at my parent's house. She had that act down!
