Happy Birthday to my Violet!
She opened her presents this morning, and Glenn has the morning off from school and is going to take her to the Natural History Museum to celebrate.
We had her birthday party on Saturday evening, and it went great! Three little girls from our ward and their parents came. We feasted on pizza, watermelon, and birthday cake. We had it at the park near our house, and the weather couldn't have been better! Pictures:
As you can see, we let Violet try some of her birthday cake. She hasn't really had sweets before, and I wasn't sure how she would react. It seems like most babies either won't eat the cake because they don't know what to do with it, or happily grab handfuls of cake and stuff it in their mouth smiling. Violet definitely stuffed the cake in her mouth, but she was very serious about it. She took her plate, walked away, and turned her back on the group. She held the plate in both hands and dove in, head first. Every once in a while, she would look up furtively to make sure no one was coming to take her cake! We laughed the whole time.
That is the face of a happy birthday girl :)
