Where Has The Time Gone?

One year ago today, I was here in Illinois.  Little Cuter, pregnant and nesting, took me to the garden center where her neighbor's child gave us a great deal on a pink and white hyacinth.  We planted it in a pot destined for her deck, and decided it was a lovely present with which to greet her baby.

That baby arrived on July 29th, but parties in the middle of the week aren't the most convenient for working parents.  So, family
 and friends
  gathered on Saturday at FlapJilly's house to celebrate 52 weeks of babyhood.  

It was perfect, just like the birthday girl herself.
Little Cuter painted the antique high chair to match the decor.  

The local grocery made wraps and croissant sandwiches and there were salads and sangria but mostly there was this
 and this
 and this
The personal smash cake was much too hard for her to penetrate.
 Grandma had no problem using fingers as cutlery and moving the process along.
 FlapJilly would like to thank all of you for the birthday wishes.
As is our family tradition, she'll be celebrating all week.
More pictures will follow.
I'm having too much fun to think about writing.


  1. OMG, I think I'm going to die from a sweet overdose! So freakin' cute. Makes me want to have more. The first birthday is always amazing. You reflect on how much they have done over that first year.

    Thank you for sharing with us too!
