Our baby girl turned one this month. We decided on a small, family celebration this year until she is more aware to “friends” and “presents.” I made stuffed shells and homemade bread and everyone but MJ enjoyed vanilla cupcakes with strawberry icing (left over from K’s birthday cake).
As most of you know, we don’t give our kids refined sugar until they are 2 (we do our best) so we used a watermelon for her cake.
We did this with K as well on her first birthday so I think we will continue with this trend. She loves watermelon so it didn’t take her long to dig into her “cake.” We had a blast watching her stuff huge handfuls of watermelon into her mouth and then she would offer us some as well.
This was her first time opening presents so it was interesting watching her figure that out. She was more interested in the paper and bags than the presents inside.
She still doesn’t care to walk, although she can. She will stand up and take a step and then realize she can move a lot of faster during her unique crawl/scoot.
She loves Ashli Grace but she hasn’t quite learned to be gentle and she is usually trying to steal AG’s pacifier.
We are so blessed with this little girl even at 2 in the morning when she would rather play in our bed and say “Dada” over and over!
