We’re definitely the family that made her wear a full on baptism cape! Our dear friend made it by hand for us! I’m so in love with it and plan to pass it down over the years through the family.

We had to get her a unicorn cake!! A friend of a friend (now new friend) also made this for us! It tastes literally as amazing as it looks!
Someone fell asleep at her own party! Actually there were multiple babies asleep! Haha ๐Ÿ™‚

Taken on my phone, once everyone had left, pretty much. We held the party at my parents’ country club, and it turned out to be the perfect venue.

I still can’t believe my baby girl is one year old ?!! The arrival of her first birthday has had me looking back on this year emotionally and gratefully, but most of all, so fondly; everything, from the early days of living in a sleep-deprived blur and treating each venture out of the apartment like a victory (and germs, like the plague),ย to today, where, though somewhat still a bit sleep-deprived, life is anything but blurry.

Rather, I’m constantly trying to soak up everything: Every new experience for her, every new bit of sass or personality she introduces to us, every milestone, and, as cheesy as it sounds, every laugh. Literally every time she laughs, I’m swept off my feet, and I try to keep her laughing longer.Things I was unsure of before areย comically second nature now. One thing that hasn’t changed though is the fact that she will still fall asleep on my chest (thank God), which she is doing as we speak (drafting from my phone) :).

Life is infinitelyย better with her in it. We often reflect on the fact that activities done with Logan are simply more fun. More rewarding. Andย I can barely remember what on earth I used to worry and stress about BB (before baby)! It’s quite beautifully indescribable.

Anyway, I mentioned it in this post, but we decided to celebrate Logan’s baptism and first birthday together, so after the ceremony at our neighborhood church, we took a five minute drive to my parents’ country club, which is where we held the party.
