Sophie's first sugar high

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
We had some friends join us for cake and ice cream on Sophie's birthday and it was a blast. (Most of these pictures were taken by Natalie. Thank you SO MUCH, Natalie!! I love them.) Sophie wasn't too sure about the sticky egg-white frosting at first, but after a few tastes off my finger and a little poking around to ensure that there was actually cake underneath all that pink stuff, she got down to business. In fact, she was so slow in the beginning, that I sort of forgot about her and started serving cake and ice cream to everyone else! Slow and steady wins the race and as you can see by the last picture, she made quite a dent in that cake! That night was the first time Bobby and I have ever witnessed an actual "sugar high" with one of our kids. She was all over the place and actually "bouncing off the wall." I saw her walk towards the girls' bedroom and she ran right into the wall, bounced off and fell on the ground, then got back up and kept going! We let her stay up an extra hour after Franny went to bed, since she was clearly too wound up to go to bed. I cleaned the kitchen while Bobby stayed with her in the living room and I came out to find that my birthday girl had crashed next to her Dad, face down in a pillow. It was a really fun day.

Such a cute scrapbook page! And I love that zonked out Sophie. So far, Eirik has never fallen asleep anywhere but his carseat or his bed. Am I too anal? That looks like fun.
