My baby girl turned one, and we decided to celebrate with a "bloom & grow" themed birthday party for our little sweetheart! apologies in advance for the massive amount of pics!
My original intention was to keep things really small scale since I went a little overboard on my daughter Jia's first birthday that she found kind of overwhelming.
I simplified by just ordering some jet's pizza (our favorite) and only inviting a few close people, though I did still enjoy the decorating.  I justified making a couple dozen enormous flowers by deciding to decorate the girl's room with them after the party. I also decorated the cakes for the party by myself this time and I was pretty proud of my first attempt!

I was super happy about how my ceramic pottery cupcake stand idea turned out!

We woke her up from a nap when the party started, so she was super snuggly for awhile!

We actually made flower crowns for all the kids out of cheap thrift store bouquets, but they were too busy playing in the water to wear them! Oh well. At least Mira got a few pics in hers. :)

Cake time!

Now comes the progression of the cake eating...


The aftermath.

Washing off the cake.

She really did the whole party thing like a pro. She loves people so much that she just ate all the attention up. It was so much fun to celebrate her with those closest to us! Here's so many more beautiful years!

happy birthday sweet baby!!
if i could rewind this year and live it over again i would. it has been such a beautiful year with our sweet new member. every moment has been pure joy.
one thing i've learned about mira is that when she decides to do something she just does it. she's on her own timeline. like for months she didn't crawl and wasn't too interested in trying, and then one day she just did it like a pro.
now she hasn't started walking yet or really cruising that much, but she just up and decided to start standing. straight up from sitting! she's such a funny kid.
she still just has 4 teeth, but she can already eat like a pro! she eats as much if not more than her big sister sometimes!
berries and pizza are her favorite foods. but she isn't too picky! she also really loves to eat meat.
i love this kid, and it's been my greatest joy this year watching her grow! we love you mira grace!

A few days late, but I can't believe this kid is 11 months! It's hard to get a pic of her being still these days.

She's not walking, but she's all over the place! She now has 4 teeth and she's using signs a lot to communicate. This pic is quintessentially Mira. She loves to hold something soft in her hand while she sucks her thumb. Lately she also holds her hair at the same time. 

She loves playing with her big sister and the dogs. Lately she only wants to be outdoors and will take off outside any chance she gets! 

I'm not ready for the big one year mark coming up! This is going too fast!
