Baby’s First Birthday

Once again I am waayy behind the times but I have been so busy posting recipes that I never got around to sharing Shania’s 1st birthday party pictures or more of the adorable pictures that we got on her one year photoshoot! Its been over 2 months already but she is soo cute I’m pretty sure you won’t mind looking at them now ๐Ÿ™‚

Moms 1 yr party wmSince Grandma and Grandpa Miller live so far away in Missouri and couldn’t be here for the special day, Grandma bought some cupcakes a few days early when we happened to be at the same place and we had a little party then ๐Ÿ™‚

Sigh, now I miss my mom ๐Ÿ™

But, back to the actual birthday party…

1st bday gift wm

We wanted to see her expression when she opened the gift we gave her and were afraid if we’d wait till everyone was here she would feel a little overwhelmed. She has spent many hours playing with this piano and loves dancing to the songs!

1st bday cake n decor wmI wanted cupcakes for her to eat and so I decided to just make the shape of a 1 with the cupcakes for the guests. I bought the cups, plates, napkins and balloons at Dollar Tree. I thought they were quite pretty for the price. The balloon is supposed to look like a flower… Pinterest idea ๐Ÿ™‚

And the next few show precisely the mood she was in when we were trying our hardest to get pictures with smiles
