My niece, Anna, is one year old today! We had a birthday party for her yesterday and it was very exciting. She is so smart and very good at opening presents. Oh boy does this little girl love clothes! Every time she got clothes, mostly it was the pink pants, she would smile and then start to rub the pants on her face. She was so happy to have new clothes. Then she'd scoot around the room showing everyone her new pants.
She did the same thing with the new toys I made her. She grabbed the toy and then started to smile and giggle and smash it to her face. So cute! I have been dying to show these, but had to wait until after the party so as not to give away the surprise. They are so cute and they were fun to make.
This is what grandma made for her. Isn't it the cutest!? It has a cute purple velvet collar and Anna is just adorable on it. My mom is so talented.

My sister made her this quilt. She even let Anna help with the quilting!
