It flew by. Saturday we celebrated three kiddo birthdays in our home with our extended family. Two of them were my sons, my oldest and the youngest have August birthdays. The other is sweet, little Molly, my niece who just turned one. A day full of visiting, food, cake, presents and hopefully it was packed with smiles for everyone.
Do you remember how you felt as a child when it was your birthday? You know, the I can’t sleep because I am so excited feeling. The asking “can I open them now?,” about your presents. now. now? now?! Overdosing on sugar. Birthdays are a big deal. They are when we celebrate each person in our lives and try to make them feel as special as they are to us.
I feel pretty lucky to not only get to celebrate with my own family but to celebrate with my clients. Births, weddings, birthdays, graduations, all of these happy times in ones life I get to witness or help prepare for. What a blessing. To get to celebrate the joy in everyone’s life surely will bring more joy to ours and for this I am thankful.
To say sweet, little Stella is adorable is an understatement. With her amazingly, cute outfits and her giant eyes, she was a treat. Celebrating a baby’s first birthday is a triumph for the parents. You celebrate the babe you adore, but I think we parents also celebrate making it through the first year of nurturing new life.
We created custom first birthday invitations for Stella and I am in love with them, and their pink envelopes. 🙂 !
Stella’s mom commented that the colorful envelopes let everyone know it is something fun when they receive it in the mail. I could not agree more! Here is a look at all the envelope colors I have to choose from.
She had her photo taken in the same tutu when she was a newborn. Such a starlet now!
