Clara Turns One!

Here are some shots from our little one's first birthday! The celebration part was pretty low-key, but we did get some special pictures throughout the day. Enjoy!

We got to go spend time with Daddy on his lunch break!

A few other pictures from the big day:

Dinner! A "Clara favorite": pasta!

Somebody had a melt down when it was time to open a present... we're not exactly sure why...

...but she got over it!

Cake Time! I decided to do something relatively simple and went with a pink teddy bear head... Clara's been enjoying her stuffed animals lately. She seemed mostly interested in the candle! I probably could have just stuck a candle in the middle of a round cake, and that would have been just fine!

She was rather "lady-like" in her cake consumption... and didn't eat very much. She seemed particularly uninterested in doing much with the icing. At some points she seemed to be trying to pick the cake out from underneath the icing!

Our little girl is growing up so fast! We love you, Clara Belle!!!

Happy Birthday Sweet Clara!!! I know I'm a couple days late... I remember the day you were born like it was yesterday. You had me so worried, I was pacing the floor all day waiting for your mommy and daddy to call me. We all miss you a bunch and we hope you had a wonderful first birthday!!!
Love, The Ruvolos

The cake is really cute, Gracie! Good job! I remember loving those big bouncy balls when I was younger.

Can't wait to see you in a few days!
