Yesterday was a big day in our home. Tiny Miss Vee turned one year old! Her day was absolutely perfect. We started the day with breakfast (whole milk yogurt) in bed. They are never too young to participate in our traditions! Then we picked up the house for her party and went shopping for last minute goodies while she crawled around and played with her toys and had a grand time.
Her party was awesome! There was plenty of yummy food and lots of friends and family. She was so cute and outgoing. She is usually so reserved and contemplative, it was strange to see her so friendly and social. She seemed to know that this party was all about her and she revelled in it.
Her cake was so cute. It was hot pink with tiny white flowers and mint green leaves with a tinkerbell on top. We sang to her and then gave her the cake. At first she was very dainty using just her pointer finger to test it out. She didn’t want to get messy so she dived in head first and started sucking the frosting right off the cake. It was so funny! Everyone was laughing and she was loving it.
She got many lovely gifts. She got sweet clothes, a bouncy ball which mader her belly laugh(another thing she rarely does), and some nail polish and earrings. She loved the presents and even though she was dead tired I have never seen her so happy. It was a lovely day!
Now I would like to share some photos we did the day before her birthday. She got to do a separate cake smash the day before for pictures and as you can see she also preferred to dive right into this one as well. Before you ask, yes those are earrings in her ears. I did take her to get her ears pierced on Monday and I am very happy! She looks just as cute as I imagined and so far taking care of them has been easier than I imagined. I am so glad I finally gave in and had them done!
