1st Birthday: Winter ONEderland

We celebrated Amelia's first birthday with a Winter Onederland theme. It just fits since she is a winter baby. However, North Carolina decided to have a rather warm day on the day of the party and we were actually able to open the windows! We had a self-serve hot cocoa and coffee bar along with winter treats.

I had a really great time planning this party and really tried not to go overboard with the color pink (it was harder than I thought!). But most importantly, we are so blessed and thankful that so many people love and care for our precious little girl.

1 Second Everyday - Amelia's First Year

Before Amelia was even born, I knew I wanted to capture one second video everyday for her first year. I only missed a couple days, which I would say isn't bad at all! (One isn't even my fault since I had to take my iPhone in). It makes me so happy and sad at the same time every time I watch it. It brings so many memories--both good and bad. And it makes me sad as I watch her grow from newborn to a year old. Because it really feels like her first year was only in minutes. I blinked and she is already a toddler.
