I knew that the smash cake was either going to be a huge hit or a huge fail with Ellison! The few bites of sweets we've let her taste she's loved so much, but she's not a huge fan of having dirty hands! She was a bit timid at first, but once she got past the icing and into the cake, she was more interested!
Happy Birthday to You!
Figuring things out.
Yep, now she's got it.
You want some cake?
Now, mix it all up!
Ellison was too spoiled at her party and got so many sweet, wonderful gifts! She was more interested in the envelopes from the cards than actually opening presents, but she was very thankful nonetheless! She got a monogrammed Anywhere Chair, a wagon, cute clothes, a pretty engraved snowglobe, lots of books, and so many other thoughtful gifts and toys! We'll be taking one toy at a time out of the closet for months!
She was loving this xylophone!
Admiring her new silver engraved bangle.
This girl loves some shoes. Can you tell?
The party continued at home!
We had such a fun time. I plan for future parties to be a little less Pinterest inspired. This was a big one though! We made it! One whole year and Ellison is happy, healthy, and thriving. We were celebrating Ellison's big day, but we were also celebrating making it through our first year of parenthood! I must say, I think we're doing just fine.
