We all know once you have kids it's no longer about you, right? Alice was definitely the star of the party but I feel like there is something about the first birthday that is for parents too. It's a celebration of a crazy new life, a thriving kid, and of survival. We made it. Now pass me a drink!
We celebrated Alice's first birthday last weekend with a few close friends and family. It was an exhausting week of crafting, shopping and prepping, but I wouldn't have it any other way (okay, maybe I wouldn't have procrastinated sooo much). Prepare yourself for some pink polka dot photo overload...
I have to give props to my card-crafting mom who had an invaluable supply of circle punches and to Hey Gorgeous Events whose DIY paint chip chandelier inspired Alice's fancy high chair garland. Thank you!!
Alice was actually quite dainty with her birthday cake. She poked and prodded the thing but gobbled it down like any other food we put in front of her. The girl loves food and of course cake was no exception.
We are so lucky to have such great family and friends who have supported and helped us through this crazy year. Thank you so much, peeps, we love you!
It seems like just yesterday we brought this itty bitty baby home, stared at her in her nursery and wondered how we got so lucky.
Happy first birthday, baby girl. We love you so :)
