Just look at that sweet little face. Don't you just want to grab it between your two hands and kiss her all day? That's what we do until LE screams, "No kisses! Just hugs..." And those eyes?! You can see right into her sensitive, loving, creative little soul. It's hard to believe my little girl is 3 years old today. Here she is around her 1st birthday.
Oh how I miss those chubby cheeks. Talk about kissable!
LE requested a Strawberry Shortcake Birthday party, which just so happened to be the theme of my 1st birthday party. Anything that wasn't Disney Princess was a big fat "YES!" in my book. Here's a few pics from our weekend of fun:
Playing with her cousins!
Cornrows and beads by Auntie Sarah.
Food! (Yes, that's tofu. And it was delicious)
Sneaking away for a pic with Mom, Dad, and Vanilla (33 weeks).
Cooling off with sprinkler and pool fun!
And, of course, her very own Strawberry Shortcake!
Her favorite presents: Vintage my little ponies/barbies and the Frozen movie. She is indeed all girl...
I can't end a birthday post with reminiscing about LE's actual birthday. Here's the post for those of you who enjoy birth stories. I gave LE the kid friendly version of her birth and the highlight for her was my water breaking. She likes to tell everyone about it... "Uncle Micah, Aunt Amy, Mommy's belly just went POP" with big hand motions to reenact a tiny explosion :-) That's pretty much how it happened, kid, and I love everything about your birth day.
1st birthday and this one
