It is hard to believe that what was a year ago 6 lbs 4 oz is now 19 lbs of full energy.
This week was Lilly's first Birthday and her party. I can't believe that she is already 1. A toddler! Gosh a year went by quickly.
This is the fabric Birthday Banner I made for her. It says Happy 1st Birthday and the 1 is velcro so it grow with her. The ST was supposed to be too but I was still sewing it the morning of the party so I will just have to pick it out later and make it velcro as well. It turned out really cute.
There are a lot of tutorials out there so I won't even try to do one but I did just kind of do it on my own. Others just seemed to make it harder than it was.
This is the second thing I made. Well an upclose version of it.
I made tons of those tiny fabric rosettes and glued them all together to make....
Lilly a birthday wreath. The 1 is not attached so it will find a home on her bedroom door. I love love it I want to make one just like it for every holiday and in every color scheme. i got the idea and tut from A Little Lovely. Here she is on her actual birthday with her Daddy in front of the wreath.
On her birthday my parents and brother wanted to see her so we went to lunch and she had a ball. Here she is with Grandma.
Grandma and Granddaddy. It was so fun because every time we would sing Happy Birthday she would start to sing too....though it sounded nothing like "Happy Birthday".
At her party in her Birthday outfit...just loved every bit of it.
The highchair decked out with a shot of the wreath in the back ground.
The cake for the guests. A family friend Donna made it for us and she is amazing this is her 3rd cake for me and all have been gorgeous and yummy!
Her 4th for me was Lilly's smash cake. Lilly loves Elmo and she sure loved this cake.
Lighting her musical candle and singing to her!
After she "kissed" Elmo many times.
Then there was swimming and Lilly is a waterbug!
Overall it was a very blessed day it was wonderful to have everyone there to share our joy at our precious gift from God turning 1.
