Lucky Ducky

Mallory loves to push the big red button!
(she always uses her thumb.)
While Casey and I were watching she leaned over several times to "kiss" her duckys. We both looked at each other and laughed.
All the babies hanging out.
Kissing another ducky.
None of these are prompted, I swear.
She's too funny! And lastly.
She was so generous with kisses.
Kissing Claddagh.
Such a lover!

Consider Skipping the Gift

It appears that gifts aren't necessary for your average one-year-old. This musical Care Bears card is more excitement than Mallory can handle in a typical day. Oh my, the squeals it has evoked. (She'll pout when she it stops working.)
Same card, different day!
The evolution of cards ... opt for the musical one!

When life gives you rotten bananas...

... make banana bread! Mallory helped me make banana bread while Casey made breakfast this morning.
She enjoyed checking out each ingredient. Thoroughly.
Wait for it...
And, it's official.
Flour does not taste good.
But this MUST be good.
Making banana bread is fun!
After a nap...
...a tasty treat!
She kept making cute "mmm", "MMMmm" noises while chewing.
I think it met her approval!

Fun with Ember

Wouldn't you smile too if you woke up with a COUSIN in your crib?

Hey Mallory, let's trade.
Well, hold on, I'm going to eat mine.
Fun on the stairs!

Saturday Stroll

There is nothing like a walk on a cool fall day...
...and boy, do the FIVE of us draw some interesting comments.

...turning 1 is just DUCKY!

Here's the fun we had at Mallory's birthday party!
It wouldn't have been complete without a homemade duck cake.
(and the only mold they had was 3-D!)
Yay! Grandpa's here!
...relaxing with Kevin #2...
...baby land...
...of course, fun with tissue paper...
...cutest coat ever from uncle sean and aunt mo...
...her very own tiara from uncle steve and aunt shannon...
...shy girl...
...once again, she doesn't waste time...
...good work...
Happy Birthday, Mallory!
Cole and Fin had fun in Mallory's new wagon!
