Portrait Session | one.

I feel like I just shot 6-month photos of this little guy … and now he’s ONE! He is one stylin’ kid – and the West Bottoms turned out to be a perfect backdrop. The balloons may have blown away and it was way too cold for a cake smash, but we still got smiles and loads of cuteness!

Wizard of Oz Birthday

Little Miss K has loved Wizard of Oz for a couple of years, so it was natural that she wanted a “Dorothy” birthday party. I can’t believe this girl is already four years old! Her birth feels like yesterday. We had a great time celebrating with family and close friends My mom did a great job with the cake. I found the figurines for it on ebay – they were from the 2013 McDonald’s Happy Meals. I had fun designing the decorations and coming up with food ideas – there wasn’t much out there on Pinterest, believe it or not. Here’s what we did:

Yellow brick road: egg casserole

Over the rainbow: fruit rainbow

Bugels: tornados

Lions, tigers, and bears, oh my!: animal crackers

Ruby slippers: Hot Tamales

Witch’s broomsticks: pretzels

Tin man hats: Hershey’s kisses

Aunt Em’s fresh squeezed juice: You guessed it – juice!

Photo of the Day: Birthday Girl

My sweet Lil’ Miss K is three today! Where has the time gone? She’s quickly turning into a smart, independent, “threenager.” Her favorite food is mac ‘n cheese, her favorite color is orange, her favorite letter is O … she hasn’t wavered from these favs for almost a year. She’s obsessed with Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood and can reenact an episode after watching it only once or twice. She loves singing and putting on goofy dances shows, and her favorite toy is her imagination. She’s pretty good at throwing a ball, too. I can have adult conversations with her, but I quickly remember she’s still a toddler when she starts to have a meltdown. We love this opinionated girl to pieces!

Check out how she’s changed since her last photo four months ago.

See how tall she’s gotten since last year!

Happy birthday, Grandma!

Today is my grandma’s 92nd birthday! She lives on the other side of the state, but luckily we had time to make the long round-trip drive yesterday to wish her a happy birthday. I’m glad she did – she was all smiles!

Hello Kitty Toddler Birthday

Since Lil’ Miss K loves kitties and doesn’t watch cartoons, I chose Hello Kitty for her birthday theme. We kept it pretty simple this year with immediate family, simple decorations, and an easy (but cute!) cake. Her favorite gift was a baby stroller to push her babies in, but my favorite was her new Strider bike!
