Happy Birthday Delia Kate!

Delia will be one year old in two short days.
I can't believe it's been a year since I was BEGGING
for SOMEONE -ANYONE- to get this baby out of me!

Brian's work schedule prohibited us from celebrating on her actual birthday - so here's our early celebration!

We've called Delia "Smiley" since she was just a few months old. So we went with that as her birthday party theme. Enjoy the pictures! We wish you could be here. :D

I think she's getting the hang of it

    Oh my gosh! Considering the sleep deficit, the birthday girl is so happy! Love, love, love all the photos!

    In the Bouncing photo, Delia looks just like her Mama as a baby.

    Zoe's darn tail wreaks havoc sometimes, eh?

    Wishing we were there for the big celebration. Thanks for sharing.

    XOXOXO

    Oh my goodness, I love the pics!!! I can't believe how much older she looks in 3 months! Did you cute Kellie's hair again, it looks great, and so does yours! I love Delia's surprised and excited face, she cracks me up, so stinkin cute, and I love the walking to Brian pics! Wish we could have had some smiley cupcakes, too cute, looks like she had a blast, good job mama, love you all!

    I so love modern technology, at least I can view pictures (compliments of Laura-Loo) I almost felt part of the celebration with the play-by-play photo's.

    Zoe's tail is unmerciful, I Know! Sending healing Kisses to Kellie-Belle :)

    Deels looked like she had the time of her life, as it should be.
    Glowing at the seams, such joy on their angelic faces!
    Beautiful girls! But hey look at their beautiful parents....go figure.

    You were very creative with your happy face cakes, yummy.

    Hugs n' Kisses
