We couldn't stop her from turning 1!

We tried.

(sort of.)

It was bittersweet, as are most (all?) milestones. Excited to watch her continued development, sad to see the dependent baby begin to slip away.

She still is a baby, but we watch everyday as she comprehends new things, communicates more and generally kicks butt.

Here she is the morning of her birthday, enjoying her birthday cupcake. She was a fan!


She was the star of the show at her party and I am pretty sure she knew it!









She got into unwrapping presents :)

Blaise got into it, too!



At one year she was standing and taking some practice steps.



I made butterfly cupcakes to go along with our theme.





The aftermath:

Kate has been an unbelieveable addition to our lives. She has become a pretty spunky little girl and a joy to be around.

Happy Birthday Kate!!! What a special big day for you. Mommy did a fancy job on those cupcakes and I love the tower. The pictures of her at the table are precious.

Apart from sorting them out from styes, attributes,
Motorcycle Fairings materials and so on, there is one important clue for tracing them.
Asics Tiger That is, from the brand itself. However, it is always not easy neither. Not only there are more and more brands going into fashion, but also the intricated Beats By Dre product names are too difficult to remember them. Thus, the category of brands was ominized here. But if you prefer to sort them out via brands, I'd like to recommend a valuable women high heel shoes website for you, that is LadyShoesMall.com, which is an exclusive women high heel shoes online store.

Wow, she's so photogenic! Your photography is also amazing; what camera are you using? I also love to take pictures, as you can see on my blog, but your composition is really well done.
