Happy birthday Mayley!!!!!

Grandma Lindley is amazing. I honestly can't think of a  thing she can't do! One of her many talents is cake decorating. She was kind enough to share her talent and make Mayley's cake.

 Mayley( with grandma lindley) showing us she is "1" year old.

Mayley receieved this toy for christmas in hope it would help motivate her to learn to walk...but she would rather sit in it and have Taylor push her around. Luckily Taylor doesn't mind.

Christmas was great for helping Mayley in her gift "unwrapping" abilities.

Mayley was more interested in eating the paper she tore off her gifts than she was to unwrap them and see what was inside.

This little piggy bank ended up being her favorite gift. Once she opened it, she wasn't interested in opening anymore presents and she got upset if anyone tried to take it from her.

 Ready to have some cake!

 She started off just eating the frosting with 2 fingers.

Then she moved on to handfuls.

 She was upset...She actually got some cake in that bite!

Happy Birthday Mayley! We love you and are so glad you are  part of our family!!!!

What a cute little princess you have! I loved seeing all the pictures and your commentary - I feel like I was there! Great job, mom! Hope she's learned to enjoy some more presents...that girl may just end up being your money-hungry child! :o) You're a great mom, Deanna - just look at your kids and all they can do. I'm so very impressed and slightly jealous, to be honest. You have it all, my friend. It may not be perfect, but it's yours. Congrats on making another beautiful child...who looks just like her handsome brothers!
