Over the weekend we celebrated my daughter’s 1st Birthday.
I had decorations from my sister-in-law’s bridal shower that were perfect to create a vintage baby girl first birthday.
Strips of fabric tied onto a dowel rod make an easy backdrop.
Her monthly photos clipped onto twine are a simple way to celebrate how she has grown over this first year. By the way, I find that these tiny clothespins come in handy often – they are great to have in your craft stash.
I leaned her newborn photo canvas on the wall above the mantle.
We enjoyed a light lunch with a few different teas.
My daughter was crazy for the cake. I like cupcakes for first birthday parties, so that the child has their own mini-cake instead of a slice.
It’s been a fast year; but I’m so thankful for this sweet girl. Her brother adores her and she thinks he is the coolest. I love to see their excitement each day when he gets home from preschool.
Right now, she’s into standing on her own and taking steps here and there. She finds tons of excitement in climbing on anything – especially her little rocking chair. I always know when she has climbed up on it due to her squeals of delight.
A little bit more about our big 1 year old:
- Still nursing
- Saying “uh-oh”
- Loves anything we are eating
- Is unimpressed by “baby food”
- Unless that baby food is yogurt drops
- Goes to bed in her crib
- Sleeps through the night
- Wakes up on schedule like a little alarm clock
- Bounces to music
- Is a speedy crawler
- Loves the dishwasher
- Loves the bathrooms
- Is incredibly curious
- Opening books
- Pushing balls
- Moving cars
- Gets excited when she sees Daddy and reaches for him
Sweet baby, we love you.
