Our sweet little baby girl is officially 1 YEAR OLD!
I can’t believe it’s all ready been one whole year since we met her. I know every parent says that, but it’s so true. Sometimes it’s so hard for me to remember her as a newborn. It feels like an eternity ago. She is such a toddler now. She walks all over the place. She eats table food. She understands words, phrases and sentences. She drinks cow’s milk… Goodness. She’s such a big girl!
For her birthday we just had a small little get together. We all celebrated Eisley’s first year with food, presents and ladybugs. It was a ladybug themed party. I didn’t go overboard and cover my entire house in red and black. It was quaint and cute. I made the decorations so it gave me and excuse to be crafty!
The day itself was kind of stressful and all I have to blame is myself. I didn’t prep as much as I wanted the day before. I was still doing last minute decorations and I felt like I wasn’t focusing 100% on Eisley. Ugh. Always the guilt with me. She also woke up in a bad mood. We tried telling her it was her birthday, but she didn’t seem to care lol. All in all it really was an amazing day. She actually loved her cake. I made a healthy cake, sweetened only with organic bananas and apples. I got the recipe here! Like every momentous occasion, it went by super quick.
I am looking forward to what the next year will bring. What new skills she will learn. The little person she will continue to grow into. This is the most fun part of being a parent… watching your child develop into a tiny person. I love watching her see things for the first time. She says “Ooooo!” when she sees something new. It’s adorable. When she hears a dog barking, she mimics it in her own little way. I am absolutely in love with this little girl.
