The First Birthday Party


Gretchen's very first birthday party was a smashing success! Family, friends, good eats, incredibly thoughtful presents & so much love.









She loved her first cake!!




After the commotion, she paused to read one of her new books...


... and settled in for some milk & a snuggle.

Thank you to everyone who made this day so wonderful. I know that we will look back and remember how meaningful and experience her first birthday was -- we feel so honoured to have family & friends who are so special, loving & ever present.

Thank you.

May I request a short post on the loot she scored? Only because I want to see/hear about that Leia doll! And that sock monkey girl is adorable - and I think I spy one of those lovely "green" soft cloth dolls as well, unsure of the brand but I see them in Target over here in Australia and always smile when I see them :)

Ah!! The sweetness is overload! :)
I was imagining all the love that was in your house today; so wonderful to see the photos showcasing that love!
Oh my gosh - little G so happy with cake! And that photo of her reading the book amongst all her lovely loot. And I'm pretty sure I saw a black tutu on her in that video.
What a beautiful day! xox!

Awe, thanks guys!! You comments are so heartwarming!!

Kim: deer watching! how fantastic!

heart felt: ooh I was just looking at oscar's new little portraits -- I just want to give him a squeeze!!

monster girl: yes! I can definitely do a little present post -- hopefully I can get that up while she naps at some point today!

caren: yes! she was definitely wearing her tutu for part of the party -- it's still a LOT to big for her tiny little body :) she still wears some 6-12 stuff :)

gray: (in my head I usually call you gray, I hope that's alright!) I can hardly get over the fact that she's a YEAR old. it's amazing. and overwhelming! and wonderful!
