Dottie turned 1 on Friday, August 21st! It's really hard to believe she is already a year old, this year has flown by.
Official 1st Birthday Wake-Up Pictures
Clearly Ella, Steve and I were a little more excited than sleepy Dottie who had no idea what all the fuss was about:)
Playing with her new toy from Myranda
Ella had some big plans in her mind for Dottie's party on Saturday so on Friday afternoon she got right down to the business of working on building her DJ station. She made a bunch of speakers from boxes and a friend loaned us some disco lights to use.
Adorable birthday girl brushing her hair
Mom, Glenn and Kelly all came in for the weekend to celebrate with us. It was so nice to have them and made the weekend that much more special.
We all went out to dinner the night of Dottie's birthday. Eating and music = Dottie's favorite things
Ella loves her root beer :)
Having so much fun dancing and clapping to the music
With Aunt Kelly on Saturday
Having fun with her birthday gift from Grandma and Grandad
Ready for the party!
I tried to get pics of the two of them sitting together but Dottie is much too busy for that, so this is the best we could do :)
So beautiful in her birthday dress from Grammy

Dottie hanging with the big girls :). She had so much fun and wanted to play with them the whole time.
Awesome birthday gift from Julia and Jocelyn - big baby!!
Could she be any cuter?
Time for cake!
She was completely baffled about why she was sitting in her high chair with a party hat on and we were all just looking at her
The 4 of us - if only Dottie knew what was coming she'd be a lot smilier!
And finally - getting to eat the cake
Water break with Uncle Paco
The cake was definitely a hit!
On her new elephant toy from Aunt Kelly
Fun with balloons with Daddy

It was such a great weekend for Dottie's birthday. She was happy and enjoyed all of it, and it was really a special weekend and great family time.
