Adventuring & Exploring


We had a wonderful birthday celebration for Nellie at her Gran’s house. We invited only close family. In fact, the people who first saw her on the day of her birth were present at the celebration of her first year of life. You can see we didn’t go all-out with themes, favors, cupcake toppers, etc. We felt like it would have been more for us than her, and we will probably concentrate more on having a themed birthday party with other kids there next year.
Nellie was hesitant about the cake at first, but as you can see she dug in after a while. She even shared with her mama. Nellie got a lot of great presents. I made her smash cake and it was… Um.. Failriffic. See?

Click for Sound Effect

Yyyyeah. It’s a sad little cake. It looks better than it did when I first made it, if you can believe it.

Nellie’s custom birthday onesie was made by my awesome & crafty friend, Rachel. She has also made Nellie various adorable hair bows, and even a hair bow holder. Because she is the bees’ knees.

My girl is 1. I can’t believe it. Her birthday was absolutely perfect.


  1. Awww, looks like such a lovely birthday party =)

  2. Haha!! I love the sound effect!! Don't feel bad–the cake I made ian totally didn't turn out the way I had imagined. I didn't even take a picture of it because it was really terrible. :( I'm glad you guys had fun!!

  3. Nellie is an adorable birthday girl!

  4. Well.. at least Nellie liked your cake- mine was totally rejected! Ha, ha. I'm so glad Nellie had a good birthday. I have a little present for her……Okay. It is clothes. I know she probably doesn't need anymore.. but it satisfies my cute girl outfit craving. I also have some pictures Ryan and I took when we visited you guys in the hospital right after Nellie was born. Happy Birthday, Nellie Rose. 😀

  5. Love the three-photo collage of her eating her smash cake! Such fun!

  6. Happy Birthday, Nellie! … She is just precious.
