Hannah turns 1!!

We had the family over for cake and ice cream for Hannah's first birthday. She tasted every present that she got and decided that birthdays are indeed tasty! The bows and ribbons were especially a big hit. The cake icing had a bit of a gooey texture that was not met with pleasure. No one likes gooey hands. As Hannah found out the best way to get icing off hands is to smear it in your hair. It also creates a cool new look! For those of you interested, this also works with smushed banana!

Over the river and through the woods!

Well, Hannah is not a good traveler. This was discovered the hard way. The girls (Holly, Cassie, Hannah and I) went on a roadtrip and met my parents in Illinois to spend some time with my Grandma Hinkle. The 5 hour trip was a very long 7 hours with frequent stops and diaper changes along the way. The trip home was the same in reverse. So loud was the fussing that Cassie exclaimed "This baby is driving my crazy!" and bailed out for the very smooth and relaxing ride with Grandma Vilas and Grandpa Dennis! Nonetheless, Great Grandma Hinkle was very happy to see everyone again and Hannah had a great time swinging from Grandma's walker! She also loved the old box of toys that have been played with by every Hinkle baby ever! Great Uncle David is a fantastic playmate!
