Happy 1st Birthday to our Baby Girl!

A year ago today we welcomed our second-born, a beautiful baby girl, MP.

And now, I know it will sound cliche, but I can't believe that she is 1 year old!

We had family over to our house on Monday for dinner to help our Little Miss MP celebrate.  We decided to go with a Butterfly theme and had a great time.  Here is a glimpse at MP's 1st Butterfly Birthday Party:

Butterfly Birthday Party Invitation - Footprint Butterfly
We made butterfly birthday invitations by making butterflies
from two painted foot prints
Butterfly Birthday Party Decorations
We had butterflies hung throughout the house
with pictures of MP on them for decorations
Butterfly Birthday Cake
Here is MP's Chocolate Butterfly Cake made from
4 heart cakes and 4 cupcakes with candy decorations
MP had plenty of help opening her gifts
from her big brother and cousin 
She got into it too by carefully examining and opening everything
She also had fun testing out several of her toys such as her grocery cart,
first pink tractor, 
and baby doll bed.
After presents it was time to sing "Happy Birthday" and blow out her candle
and eat cake and homemade ice cream!
Happy 1st Birthday MP!
We Love You Very Much!

  3. Celebrating first birthday of our baby seems to bring a lot of happiness in our life; we used to plan for this day earlier. Therefore we used to go for several kinds of options and themes; mostly themes parties are now days become the center of attraction therefore before celebrate a birthday we should plan for a theme also which looks unique and attractive. Here also we have found a unique and attractive theme birthday party and I am sure that we should take some good example from here to celebrate ours.
