first birthday // pow wow
I simply cannot believe I have a ONE year old! Where does the time go? Goodness it has taken me a couple weeks to even get this post up and sorry for the picture overload. Sometimes it is so hard to narrow it down to a couple photos when I always like every single one. I honestly feel like I was just holding her as a new born and bam here we are and I am chasing her all over the house!
When I started planning her first birthday, I knew I wanted it to coincide with how I updated her bedroom. I know I still need to give you an updated tour (soon) but we recently added a teepee, arrows, dreamcatchers and more fun colorful items. Of course, this prompted me to have a "pow wow" first birthday party...
I pretty much made and put everything together myself with the help of my sister. I asked my sister-in-law if she could make the teepee cookies and those just came out so adorable. We frosted and decorated them the night before. You probably noticed three cakes. Oops. Lol. The cake story is funny but I will not go into details and just tell you that my best friend from Kentucky gifted her the big beautiful tribal cake. I haaaaad to have it and cried when she told me she bought it for Danica. Then I wanted the look of three layered cakes on the table so I made another one, in a different flavor and the small one was her smash cake. Or stay in place cake and throw away 2 days later because she wanted nothing to do with it. Ok little libra, do whatever you want. Keep #breakintypeA over here.
I am so happy a couple friends prepped me about their kids behavior at their first birthday. Not only were we getting two more bottom teeth in that week, she's was overwhelmed by all of the company and focus on her (definitely not from me). Her mood was off and although she did have fun at the end of the day, she wanted nothing to do with her smash cake and cried the entire time we sang happy birthday. Silly girl. At least she won't remember any of it.
All in all, I am so happy with how everything turned out and it was such a special day to have all of the family there to celebrate her very first birthday. Happy FIRST Birthday Wub I love you more than words!!
