We took Isadora to the Oakland Zoo on her first birthday.
We also brought her favorite playtime friends, Anneke and Jyoti.
This giraffe family was my favorite.
It was close to feeding time and the chimps were going crazy. They started swinging around the trees and shrieking. The cacophony was starting to bother the girls, so we left. They were also getting really tired. Luckily, we saw most of the zoo before it was time to leave.
They fell asleep in the car on our way home.
We had an awesome birthday party for Isadora. I didn’t take many photos. We had IzzyCam turned on during the party, so we got a few shots from the day. Isadora’s favorite playtime friend, Anneke, came to the party. They spent most of the day together looking and acting adorable.
I did have the wherewithal to grab my camera when it was time for her first bite of cake. This photo, however, is courtesy of Netsui.
I was really on the fence about letting her have sugar, but finally decided she could have it for her birthday. She was unsure of it at first because I put the whole cupcake in front of her. She didn’t know what to do, so I broke off a bit and put it in her mouth.
She LOVED it.
Too bad she’ll have to wait until next year to get another bite of cake.
Baby Giana was born the day before Isadora, but celebrated her birthday the day after so we were able to attend her party. Makita love the babies.
Cute little girl in a party hat. She had to go to someone else’s party to be able to wear a birthday hat because her neglectful mother forgot to put one on her head at her own party.
Makita didn’t want to be left out of the hat action.
This is the closest I’ve been able to get Doug to sit next to the baby. I haven’t been able to get him to hold her yet. Soon. Soon.
