Is. hosted her one-year birthday bash this afternoon--a sunny garden party with swimming, balloons, grilled foods, friends and more friends, sandbox play, and cake with ice cream. Today's celebration was a few days early considering that she remains an infant until Wednesday, her official birthday. At that point she will make the full transformation from infancy to toddlerhood (toddlency?). Of course, you wouldn't know it by asking her how old she is (How old, kid?). Do that and she holds up her index finger like she left the infant stage in the dust weeks ago.

That's one happy baby! BTW, when does toddlerhood end? Being childless, I have no idea.

Thanks, Jenny and Joanna. She loves the backyard swimming pool. It was take-your-breath-away cold when I first set it up, but she plunged right in and didn't seem to mind.

Officially--as far as I know, Joanna--toddlerhood ends today. One year in, the infants turn to toddlers. If I have time later, I'll post a video clip of her walking (which started, in earnest, just a few days ago). Walking and high-speed crawling are the big changes that justify being a toddler.
