Our second September birthday belonged to little Renny who turned one year old on the 21st. We held the party at our house but Nora did most of the work. Our son in law, Topher has given her the nickname Renbird so Nora decided upon a bird theme.
Here are some pictures documenting the event:

Here's the rest of the fam:
The food was also bird-themed. We had little individual spaghetti "nests" topped with tomato sauce and meatballs, bread sticks; aka "twigs", broccoli salad with sunflower seeds (little trees and seeds), and applesauce.
Nora made little bluebird cookies, cupcakes with a nest and eggs on top, and a birdcage cake for Renny to smash.
Here Della is anticipating the smackdown:
This is my favorite--Renny lowered her head down into the cake!
We all enjoyed celebrating this special day with her and are thankful for her good progress during this first year of life. She says quite a few words, is an accomplished cat chaser, eats nearly everything, and has ten teeth. She has more than tripled her birthweight and seems to have caught up from her early arrival.
She will not be the baby much longer since the family will be increasing with the advent of a little brother in the spring. We are looking forward to this event and will keep you posted. 🙂
