My Baby is ONE!

brown and pink tutu idea complements of corynne escalante, props.

While Oct 6th came and went a while ago, we just celebrated our little Charlotte's 1st Birthday yesterday. A small gathering of friends and family, to lavish our love on the little one. She was a little emotional at first(imagine that), but she cheered up and seemed to enjoy her first birthday party. It seems no 1st birthday is complete without a few tears. Charlotte is amazing and has been a welcome lively addition to our family. She keeps us on our toes...constantly and at 1 year old is ready to take on the world! She waddles around from one end of the house to the other, with her feet barely able to keep up with her determination. Anything in the way gets vigorously shoved aside or momentarily crashed into. Her eyebrows speak volumes and are often times intensly furrowed. Not to many people meet Charlotte without commenting on her chubba wubba cheeks! ( which are currently red and chaffed from a rather blustery day) Her favorite birthday gift was probably her cell phone, which she walks around with saying "HEWWO" is a strangly deep voice. She really loves her daddy and is always the first one to greet him when he comes home. She is our little snuggle bug baby and we couldn't love her more.

It seems impossible that she already one. I'm glad y'all had a great time. Char looks like she enjoyed her self.
I can't wait till the next time I can kiss those Chubby cheeks of hers. Kiss both those beautiful girls for me and tell them Aunt Brandi Loves them to the moon and back. XoXoXo
