Last Saturday afternoon, we had a little party for Katherine's first birthday. Grandma and Grandpa Luidens were in town, and we invited some of our Omaha friends as well. The apartment was full of activity, and Kate had a lot of fun. Our favorite part was when she ate a carrot cake cupcake - she grabbed it and ate it frosting side first! Since then, Kate has starting saying "hi" and is getting better at standing holding on with only one hand...soon enough she will probably be walking!
