Happy Birthday Sweet Little Girl!! This little doll has stolen our hearts and the hearts of her family. She is such a sweet baby, soon to be toddler! I cannot believe an entire year has passed. It is hard to imagine our lives without her.
This weekend was filled with a cute baby girl, lots of gingham, and of course cupcakes. And yes that is Ellie trying to touch the burning candle. Don’t worry I stepped in before she was in danger!
There was yummy mason jar cookie favors. Filled up with pink and purple m+ms, and topped with purple gingham fabric. Don’t ask me how long it took to sort out the m+ms, or how many extra m+ms I have in the candy closet. It is absurd.
We also had flowers and lots of pictures around the house. I jumped at the chance to decorate with hydrangeas and tulips. It isn’t every day that your baby girl turns one. Especially at this perfect time of year when the flowers are beginning to bloom!
Ellie's month by month pictures hanging from the mantle, and a pink gingham bunting banner for extra sweetness!
And then there was the sweet little girl. In her pink gingham pinafore, ready to party. She tried to open gifts, but mostly got help from her big bro and his friends.
The boys stood around and told stories. Of course!
Sweet Elle Belle. You are a little miracle. You are more amazing and perfect than I could have ever dreamed. You were so wanted, dreamed of, and loved before you arrived. Thank you for letting me be your mommy.
I love you ellie through and through. Happy First Birthday!
