Happy Birthday, Caroline!

Although her real birthday isn't for a few more days, we celebrated today since Charlton has to work late on Tuesday. Caroline enjoyed her birthday waffle, cut in the shape of a flower, with lots of syrup (a favorite) and sprinkles. After breakfast she opened her presents, with plenty of help from her big brother. Rylan had a much harder time than I had expected with the spotlight on Caroline, and threw quite a few tantrums when we wouldn't allow him to keep her presents for himself. It put a little bit of a damper on the celebration for us parents, but Miss Caroline took everything in stride. Since the wrapping paper was just as interesting as the presents themselves, Rylan finally got a chance to test out all her new girly toys.

She wasn't sure what to think about the birthday waffle at first.

Is this candle edible?

Caroline's first Breyer model horses, Misty and Stormy, from Aunt Bethany.

Pony hugs.

Look what I can do! For some reason, Caroline kept trying to throw her big horse and her baby around her shoulders. This was her best attempt with the horse.

Hmm, I think these two look alike, at least in the cheeks and chin department.

Umm, I don't think that is the best way to hold baby dolls, Caroline.

Little mommy-to-be, you need some more training. I know your baby doll smells good, but please don't bite her head!

Birthday cupcakes. I love the progression in the next photos as Caroline moves from skepticism to pure enjoyment.

First touch.


Can I fit this whole piece in my mouth?

The eyes are lighting up.

This stuff is great, Mom!
