Horse, pig, dog, and sheep

Here's a pic with horse, pig, dog, and sheep. Matilda is looking down at cow, chicken, and farmer.

Matilda squints at the camera flash and gives a big smile. She is wearing her Stroller Strides t-shirt and suspenders. Actually, the "suspenders" keep her in her high chair. Mati is also holding her farmer. The pig, cow, sheep, chicken, horse, and dog are all on the floor. Farmer joined them after the photo was taken.

Birthday party cupcake

Even though her birthday cupcake was free of nuts, dairy, and gluten, Matilda was still a bit weary. However, she really enjoyed everyone singing Happy Birthday to her and clapped along.

Here's the third and final Golden Gate pic (for now) of Matilda with her Dad. Before Mati turned one, we enjoyed a foggy walk across the bridge.

Next year, Matilda will walk across with us.

Crawling in pink pants

Crawling on the sidewalk can be a bit dirty though Mati doesn't seem to mind.

I should have included a pic of her pink pants after her adventures.

Birthday cupcake #2

Thank goodness I bought Matilda two cupcakes! I wasn't sure what she would like and they both looked so yummy to me. Cupcake #2 was very similar to #1 in that she did not like the taste very much although it was fun to play with and then clean up.

Birthday cupcake

I bought a baby-sized cupcake for Mati to enjoy on her birthday.

Luckily, she enjoyed playing with it more than she liked eating it as I think it gave her a bit of a rash.
