An entire year has passed since Munchkin joined our family. She is no longer a babe, but an active toddler with a passion for discovery, as well as for eating paper and dirt.
On her first birthday we were seated in the living room when Munchkin slid off her dad's lap and toddled across the room to the other couch. It was her first demonstration of her walking skills. Here is a video of her pushing her stroller/ walking as we tried to capture it on camera. Better video tomorrow.
We had some family and friends over and gave her the traditional Duff 1st birthday cake with a clown head on it. After some hesitation and a taste of frosting, she chose the clown head. She then happily ate the clown head and a piece of cake, making a huge mess and enjoying every minute of it.
