A One-Year-Old Birthday Party

I can’t believe that C has already turned one year! We had fun celebrating her special day together as a family of five. We loved celebrating her first year with extended family and local friends by having a birthday party at our home. I was enthusiastic about her turning one, yet a bit in disbelief that this year with our new sweet child has flown by so quickly. Last week, I spotted a one-year-old molar that has already erupted. Yes, little one you really are already ONE! Here’s some quick photo documentation of the party, the peasant shirt dress and Hungry Caterpillar quilt I made for her first birthday. Surprisingly, I finished the quilt with a few days to spare.

The cake my talented sister D made for Miss C. What a thoughtful Auntie! See the caterpillar cupcakes in the collage below that my sister also made for the party.

I used these two blogs, Sew Like My Mom and Indietudes to help me make this peasant shirt /dress. Eric Carle Dots fabric bought at the Fat Quarter Shop.
