These are the fleeting moments I want to hold in my heart forever. I can't believe my baby is already one year old! We had a great celebration that lasted all weekend and involved a massive amount of cake which we are still enjoying and will be defrosting and enjoying for many weeks :) Her birthday was on a Friday and we celebrated with dinner and a little indoor playground time at Chick-fil-a, followed by cupcakes and presents at home. Saturday I picked up her official birthday cake and smash cake and did a little photo shoot with her smash cake. She loved it! Sunday we had her party and she had a great time seeing lots of family and friends, opening tons of fun presents, and eating MORE CAKE! I have loved every minute of watching her grow and develop her sweet little personality over the past year. She has brought so much love and happiness to our family and I am so lucky to be her mama! Happy Birthday Anna! Here's a look back on some of my favorite photos of her first year :)
This is probably my favorite newborn photo I have ever taken. Not only do I love the baby and think she is adorable, but the blanket she is laying on was handmade by my great grandmother and the birch log bench was handmade by my husband. So much to love!
Anna's first Valentine's Day! Peek-a-boo! Thanks to Stan's Northfield Bakery for the beautiful cake!
Those lashes though... I love you Anna Bear and I cannot wait to watch you grow up!
