We all got a huge kick out of watching her taste cake--and sugar icing--for the first time!
She clapped her hands in sheer joy!
When Lydia pulled out this baby doll from the gift bag, her expression was priceless (she hasn't had a doll until now). Then, her crowd of adoring fans all began cheering because to our complete delight she said, "Ba-ba."
Aunt Leida presented Lydia with her name cross-stitch. This precious gift means so much to us because Lydia's first year of life was a very difficult year for her great-aunt Leida, as she spent it battling cancer. Leida is doing well now, thanks be to God, but the cross-stitch gift, which was a fun and relaxing project to make for all the other children, was a painful project and labor of love this time. Thank you, Leida! We love you so much.
Lydia's cousin Wesley gave us a little concert on his electric guitar.
