As I promised, here is the post on what Ayla got for her birthday. She got quite a bit and was very loved by everyone at her party.
This is what her Aunt Suz and her family gave Ayla.
It was perfect because Ayla loves dogs and now she has her very own 1st birthday dog with a little note from everyone who came to her party. Thanks Suz, Chris and Brooke. That was such a thoughtful present.
Next, these are the cute clothes she got.
Grandma and Grandpa Perry bought her the 2 outfits on the far left. Jolene got her the yellow set in the middle. Amy and John got her the cute flower dress. And Cori got her the other cute pink dress. Love the clothes everyone, thanks.
Here is Ayla modeling her clothes.
Melissa got Ayla a Baby Einstein book with a CD and a Baby Einstein DVD which is about Noah's ark animals. Perfect, Melissa. Noah is her best friend's name.
Amy and John also gave her this cute teddy bear that has a blanket rolled up in it's arms. I love that the blanket has a place to be put and a cute place at that. Thanks Amy and John.
Grandma and Grandpa Perry got Ayla this nice Mega Bloks set. She loves it and I love it. She can even take a bath with these puppies.
Grandma and Grandpa Perry also got her these Alphabet wooden blocks. Ayla and Kurt love these. Kurt loves to build towers with the blocks and Ayla loves to knock them down. In the picture, Ayla is trying to build a tower of her own. Smart girl! Thanks Grandma and Grandpa!
This is what Mommy and Daddy got her. This is what was in the green wrapping paper on the last post. I got her this steering wheel because whenever I took her somewhere where they had a toy steering wheel, Ayla always wanted to play with it. The only problem is when you honk the horn, it honks but then it says "OUT OF THE WAY!" I not so sure I like that because I hate horns for that exact reason. People use them to tell you that you are doing something stupid. Anyway, Ayla loves it and I guess I do too.
Aunty Marion and her boyfriend, Monty got her this Elmo Up Up. It is really cute. Elmo will ask you to pick him up and then he will sing a cute song. He says a lot of things but I think what I love about it the most is that he laughs and that makes Ayla laugh. Thanks Marion and Monty.
Uncle Robert and Aunt Carolyne and Lane got her this frog puppet.
Of course it makes her laugh. Thanks you guys!
And last but not least, my parents got her this trike.
Doesn't she look so cute on it? We are trying to work with her with it. That is why it looks like she is riding it herself. Thanks Grandma and Grandpa Wiechert!
Also Leah, notice the shirt she is wearing? It is the onesie that you guys gave her that says, Tennessee. Yes, she still fits in it. I think it is a 6 month. She is a small gal.
We have a lot of fun playing with her toys with her. I built this T-Rex out of her Mega Bloks. Can you tell it is a T-Rex?
Oh no! Here comes Ayla! AHHH!
Notice Kurt is playing with her with her Alpha blocks?
One more thanks to everyone for being so giving and loving our sweet little girl!
Also below, I wanted to share some funny things that Ayla has been doing lately.
I always find thing inside her boppy ball machine. It is usually these farm animals. I guess she wants to see other things besides balls come boppy out.
She did this last night.
She stood inside her train for a while. She cracks me up.
I love this one. LOL!!
She has been smashing her face against the pack and play. We keep her toys in there, so there isn't a huge mess around the living room all the time. She loves to look inside at her toys. I actually started to cover it because Kurt requested I should because he felt bad that she could see her toys but not get to them. What a great Dad!
Another thing she has been doing is what I call strutting her stuff. She will walk and try to dance at the same time. I couldn't get a picture of it but maybe later or, even better, a clip of it.
