Miriam's first birthday party was a sweet celebrations of her first year - and mine as a mother! Her birthday marked a real turning point for me in terms of feeling normal (whatever that is!). No longer nursing? No longer having an 'infant'? Maybe just getting used to the swing of things? Regardless, I was delighted to celebrate with our friends and family! I actually love throwing parties anyway, so it was a good excuse to get my craft on. I did a few chalkboard signs, a canvas sign, created a gold fringe heart and even designed the cakes (which ended up costing so many dollars! Eek, lesson learned!).
Thank you to everyone who kept us all sane our first year and celebrated with us!
Thank you as always to the best Aunt LoLo and photographer, Lori Wilson Charles, for capturing these memories.
