Bella is One Year Old

Warning - this post features 30 pictures! BUT it's down from 128!

Bella is one year old on the 12th of April. We celebrated early as Bre has AWANA on Wed. nights. The original plan was a family BBQ at BreZaak's apartment, but the weather is fickle around here. We moved to Putters Family Entertainment Center.

 I suspect they were discussing something Alaska related. It was fun having Cy down for this event! 
Bre, Cy, Izaak, Michael 
 Mom and I drove over from radiation and a doctor visit.

 Bella is a tease! There's no way around it. If  she KNOWS you'd like to hold her, she plays with you. I kept offering her to Cy and she kept shaking her head no. I moved down the row of her admirers and she kept turning back to hug me and shaking her head, "no."  She cracked us up when she shook her head yes, then no, to Alex. I eventually gave her to Josiah. She thought that was great fun!
Every girl needs an Uncle Cy
 Uncle Alex is poking her ear and she thinks it's Cy
 A girl and her uncles
Izaak's dad and Dakota (Bella's brother)
 The K family - minus Will

Baby D 2 was evident as well! 
7 months pregnant
 CoRielle came over after work
This little one is blessed with a family who adores her
 Bre had baked cupcakes - some dairy free. Bella was intrigued by the flame on the cupcake! As with many one year olds, Bella has never had sugar before. If she thinks the fire is amazing - wait till she tries the sugar.

It's hard to see her expression - but Bre had just placed the lit candle on top of the cupcake on her tray. She is giving Izaak a look that says, "WHAT is up with MOM?"

Not sure what it is - but everyone is watching it and I'm near enough to explore it...


Oh, Dad - this is good! 
 She kept watching Izaak and "talking" to him as she tried new bits of it. 

A sticky High Five

Mom, where's the wipes?

She loved her presents. This is a marked change from Christmas. Next year is going to be fun. LOL

Great Grandma and Grandpa with Bella
 I told you she was a tease - blowing Raspberries at Emma
