In case you haven't heard, my little girl turned one a week ago! My sister took these awesome photos and I just got them today, so of course I must share them! (What, are you crazy?)
That adorable dress was actually mine and I wore at my first birthday party as well. Only then, it was a drab pink and totally 80s. So, I dyed it using this fabulous fabric dye called idye and made some felt roses to jazz it up a bit. Don't you love those frilly socks?? I made them! Apparently, nobody sells frilly baby socks anymore (lame!) so I had to improvise.
Salem got like a bazillion presents (thanks everyone!!!). She definitely got the opening part down. Now, whenever she sees a gift bag, she smiles super big and races over to pull out its contents.
I made a special cake just for her (gluten-free dairy-free carrot cake and cream cheese frosting). I had so much fun making and decorating it. I'd have to say that decorating cakes is probably a secret passion of mine. Looks like it's not a secret anymore. :)
Here she is taking her first taste...
It was so good, she had to share it with everyone else!
Thanks so much to everybody that was able to make it! We sure created one beautiful memory together :)
