Wordful Wednesday: Tori's First Birthday.

Well, as you all know, Tori's birthday didn't quite go off as we had planned. But a birthday was had, and pictures were taken to prove it.

When I first dressed her in her birthday finery, she was not pleased. Not pleased at all (she looks cute though, doesn't she?).

But after opening a few presents, her mood improved. In fact, I think I see a smile peeking out here...

But it wasn't until she got her first taste of cake that we got a true Tori grin.

Apparently, all it takes is a little chocolate to put her in a good mood. Which figures, since she is my daughter!

So, despite all the tears, her birthday ended with a smile. And that's exactly the way it should be.

Now head on over to Seven Clown Circus for some more Wordful Wednesday goodness!


  1. Oh my goodness she is cute!
    I am so glad to hear that despite all the craziness just a couple days before the big event was celebrated, the girl ate her cake, presents were to be had, and you got your big girl drink!

    Happy Birthday to your sweet little gal!

  2. Good that her day ended well--chocolate always makes things better, doesn't it? I was like that too. I hated any dress no matter how pretty it was.

  3. Awww. Happy birthday to her! I have to say, that first pic made me smile...birthday finery or not, that face is just cute as cute!

  4. Oh, this little girl has discovered the power of the cocoa bean.

    Anything is doable/possible/manageable with some chocolate thrown in.


    She's adorable..

    Happy 1st birthday!!

  5. I love the pictures -she is adorable. The dress is so cute.

    Happy 1st birthday.

  6. Hi I'm visiting from UBP! We're trying to decide what to do for our little guy's first birthday. I think we might reserve a pavilion at the local park. I hope it's a nice day. :) Oh and I love your name!

  7. She couldn't be cuter. I feel the same joy with chocolate cake, but I think she displays her joy more than I ;)

  8. What a doll! I am glad she enjoyed her cake and got her smile back!
