The party planning has begun and we are a week away from 1 year. Lily is celebrating her first birthday next Saturday. I am so excited and have planned every detail. I decided to get creative and made all of her party stuff. I have researched lots of blog sites which was super fun. It's tons of work but well worth every minute. Her theme for her party is "Our Little Cupcake is turning 1". So of course cupcakes galore. John and I have already bought her gifts. Which is so much fun to go into a Toy's R Us and look at all the cool toys they have out now that I didn't have as a kid!
Planning Lily's party has been so much fun and it allows me to be creative in other ways. I discovered a whole new world of blogs and stores. I will share all the fun sites and stores after the party. I think I want to add it to my design company to do creative party planning or invitations. I would like to eventually have my own line of invitations and note cards.
I can not believe it has been a year. To all you moms out there it goes by so fast. She has grown up so much in a year and has discovered so many new things. Here's a quick rundown of what Lily is up to:
She just took her first steps this week. What a moment! She couldn't believe she was walking! It was so cute. She eats pretty much everything we eat (well we are working on that because she only wants pasta, cheese, and yogurt...the tricking as begun!). She is probably weighing in around 17lbs now. Her favorite shows are Sesame Street and The Fresh Beat Band. Basically she loves watching anything that has music in it so she can dance! She loves our iPhone and all the fun apps I put on it for her but trying to get it back causes a another issue of meltdowns! She still has bright red hair although not much as grown in and she still has her baby blues. She is such a joy and we love her so much. She has brought a new meaning to life!
Below is her Halloween pictures. She wasn't to sure about Halloween and what we were doing.
