A not so happy birthday

We celebrated Kate's first birthday yesterday with our families (from Durham and Richmond), but the guest of honor woke up with a 102 fever. :( I was sick on my first birthday, so I guess she just wanted to be like her mama!

She was totally pitiful when she woke up from her first nap of the day, and it's obvious which pictures were taken at which time during the day! We ate quickly, had some cake, opened a few presents, and then she went back to bed for a bit. When she woke up, the Tylenol had clearly kicked in, and she was a new girl (for an hour or 2)! No more cute birthday dress, but I figured it was more important to be comfy at nap time! She opened the rest of her gifts, and then got right to work on her new toys! Aunt Ashley picks out the best toys for Miss Kate... and she can push this one all over town!

Then, it was time for one more nap. Daddy joined in on this one, while Mom hammered out all of the thank you notes! After that, we went to Noodles and Co. (our fave!) for dinner with Jon's family and snagged some Krispy Kreme on the way home. Hallelujah! I think birthday cake might be on the menu for today. Kate loved her yellow cake with chocolate icing and lots of yummy ice cream. A girl after my own heart!

This is pretty indicative of what life was like between nap #1 and nap #2. :(

The reaction to the cake- only after the whole room cheered, "Yay!!!!" very loudly.

How do you know when it's time for a nap??

Moving too quickly for a picture!

Love this thing!!
