WELL, THAT WAS FAST!
How is baby girl already 12 months old!? I've been reflecting on the past year a lot lately! It has been a year of INCREDIBLE joy and a year of GREAT challenges. I'm so thankful to see this smiley little face everyday, but occasionally I still can't believe I'm her mom! (No pressure or anything!)
Thank you Leah's Opus Photography for capturing such sweet moments at Millie's July birthday!
With sunglasses and beach umbrella sugar cookies, we celebrated our little "beach baby".
Sidenote: She did NOT care for birthday cake! How are we related?! I'm the Sugar Queen!
Perhaps the greatest lessons I've learned from raising this little flower:
1. Be Present! (even in the little moments)
2. God is in control, and we are not! So rely on Him!
We had a blast with our family and friends. When we started planning, we knew we couldn't fit everyone in our house. (Martin has a large family!) So we started brainstorming of locations that would be low stress, conveniently located, and kid friendly!
Coastal Crust was perfect! The delicious pizza, the ample seating, the charming outdoor setting, and the kid play areas all made it ideal for a first birthday! The best part...I only had to remember 3 things! The dessert, the balloons, and the birthday girl! #success
