Birthday Baby

It's hard to believe that Saffie is already a year old. She sure has packed a lot of activity into her first year. She has her own blog, wandered the woods of Minnesota and the streets of Chicago, coexisted with two puppies, cousins, grandparents, aunts and uncles (and greatgrandmas), learned to eat, walk and talk unintelligibly and attended more Cub's games than her grandpa. On Saturday, Grandma and Grandpa Jones hosted Saffie's first birthday party. In true female fashion, she immediately took to one of the gifts, a shopping cart. As the pictures below indicate, cake eating is one of her strong points.

I didn't take long for Saffie to find out
what birthday cakes are all about . . .

"OK, pass the cake already!"

"At last. My own Saffie size cake."

"Am I doing this right? After all this is my first time."

"By Jove I think I've got it!"

"Now that's what I call a Happy Birthday!"
