Happy Birthday Macey!

I've been really lazy when it comes to wanting to blog. I love that I'm able to have my summer home with my sweet baby and I'm now going to post her b-day pics! Pool and Fathers Day pics coming next!

For her birthday, we surprised her with a little car that she can push or sit on. She lifts that big leg over and tries to sit. She usually gets pushed around via us! That night, we had Haley and Kendall's dance recital and the following weekend, we celebrated her first birthday!!!

Since she was born, we've always called her, "Birdie," or "Bird." So, it was only fitting that we chose a bird and owl theme. Her invites had brown, blue, pink, and mint green polka dots with darling birds and owls on them.

For her party, we cooked hamburgers with delicious baked beans, chips, and drinks. I got a cute birthday table cloth to accent her birthday table. I can also use this every year for her. I baked coconut cupcakes with sprinkled coconut on top and cupcake toppers from ciabambino on etsy. I got pink marshmallows and dipped them in chocolate and added chopped peanuts as well. The pics on the table came from our birthday invite photoshoot (Derrick and I :)
To end the party, guests had the choice of pink or blue cotton candy to leave with, and stickers also from ciabambino.
Macey wore a hot pink ruffled cupcake corset and hot pink tutu. She couldn't have been any cuter! We were so thankful to share her first b-day with friends and family and Macey had a TON of precious gifts and items to enjoy. It couldn't have been any better!

I hope you had a wonderful first b-day my sweet baby girl. You are the love of my life.
