Silly Wake Up :)

I just happened to have my camera with me when I woke Livi up this afternoon. She was in the most hilarious mood! She decided to hug each of her stuffed animals, falling over and laughing after each hug :) This must have gone on for 10 minutes - I was wondering if she would ever want to get out of her crib! Such a sweet pea :)

Sleepin' the day away :)
Lovin' that thumb!

There's that sweet smile!

I love it when she wakes up like this :)

Awww, love the pig!

And then fall over :)

Awww, love the bear!

And then fall over and laugh hysterically! :)

Almost There!

Well, I thought I would write a quick note (mainly so I won't forget) about how today (11/18) Livi walked with only 1 hand for guidance! We were practicing in the kitchen, when all of a sudden, she saw 1 lone birthday balloon still going strong, and reached for the string. In no time, she was walking and holding the string at the same time! She didn't even know it! I know it's not quite "walking", but it's closer than ever! :) YAY! :) Ok, that's it. Bye!

Livi's 1st Birthday!

It's so hard to believe, but Livi just turned 1!!!! We celebrated with 2 different parties - 1 for her little friends and 1 for family. Both were so much fun and she enjoyed every minute! We are truly blessed! :)

All the girls trying to figure out the "Match-a-Month" game :)

More guests arriving!

Dana and her sweet Anna Kate, who just had her 1st birthday a few days before Livi!

YAY! Aunt Jenn made it! Livi went right to her and would not let her go!

Livi was in no mood for more pics, she wanted that cake! :) it! :)

Precious Sydney got some cake, too!
Trace and Blythe decided they wanted some of the "Big Kid" cake :)

The Player Fam - Winners of the "Match-a-Month" game! :) YAY!

Now on to Livi's Family Birthday Party :) It was a special day for many reasons...My grandparents and aunt and uncle from south GA surprised us all by driving over 10 hours to attend Livi's party! What a blessing! Also a blessing was our time with Papa, Matt's grandfather who went home to be with the Lord (and to be reunited with his dear wife) early Sunday morning after Livi's party on Saturday. We are so grateful he was able to be surrounded by family and friends in his last hours. God is so good!

Livi thought it was really funny when her Uncle Drey got on the floor to play with her new toys!

YAY for cake!

Priceless face ;)
