Celebrating Lil A’s First Birthday

Baby Girlie turns one this week! What a joy she is. We celebrated early with a few friends last weekend…

Since she’s a girl (duh) and her birthday lies close to Valentines Day and her Mama already decorates the house for the holiday… a red and pink heart party was just the ticket. I wonder if it’ll be the same theme every single year?! Chances are…

Branch over my mirror was a dreamy place to hang a bunch of ribbons.

Her name printed and framed was so cute, sorry I had to make it blurry for this blog.

Ribbons and roses. Simple. Lovely.

Since baby girl only started eating food a month and a half ago, I wasn’t ready to do the full-on cake and icing for her. So I made a naturally sweetened carrot and raisin cake with cream cheese frosting sweetened with apple juice concentrate. I was worried, but even the grown-ups liked it for the most part! (Besides my husband, that is, who asked if he could dump some sugar on top of his?!) He he.

“Happy birthday to you…”

IMG_62663When I sat her in the chair and put the cake in front of her, she looked up and saw that everyone was giving her attention and looking at her and she really liked that! She just grinned. It was so cute, too bad I didn’t get a picture of it.

She was rather confused by the cake.

Daddy helped her get a taste.

Mmmnnn hmmmmn. Not too bad!

Mostly she went for the icing at the beginning.

Things got messier.

Two sisters. Nom nom nom.

In the end she managed to get cake on the floor and all over her little make-shift seat. She could have kept going.

Present time. Isn’t this face the best?!
