I'm full of emotions as I write this post. Excited for Holly Moon to enter the world of being a toddler & sad that we will no longer have a baby in our house. We celebrated our baby girl's 1st birthday party with a princess castle, a pretty pink & purple cake, pink balloons, good food & lots of friends. Holly had a wonderful day. She wandered around the party all day in her little princess tutu smiling at all her new friends & guests. She was such a big girl. She never cried & enjoyed all the attention. Once everyone ate lunch it was time for birthday cake. After the birthday song Holly just stared at her cake. She timidly touched the cake at first but after that first bite we couldn't stop her. She loved the cake! She just kept shoving it into her mouth. Her brothers were there to help her out too & Johnnie even showed her that she could just use her mouth instead of her hands. Our baby girl was covered in cake & only stopped eating because she got cake in her eyes. And the last photo of her cake explains why they call it a smash cake.
After a wardrobe change to get her out of her cake covered dress it was time for a few more photos & the passing out of favors which included this princess wand that Holly wouldn't let go of. Our friends were so generous. I don't think we will have to buy clothes for our baby girl for the entire year & she loved her little pink purse, phone, new owl jammies, her books & her ride on toy. And so did Jimmy.
