We celebrated Peyton’s 1st birthday on Saturday June 4.
It was hot and sunny and we were all huddled in the shade but we had so much fun celebrating our little girl on her first birthday!
We had both sets of grandparents, Aunt Amanda, and cousin Chansler all here to help us decorate and celebrate! Plus many of our closest friends came over!
We made sure we measured Peyton on her measuring stick (one of her Christmas gifts from us!) first thing in the morning.
We spent all of Saturday morning decorating outside and preparing the food that we couldn’t/didn’t the night before and icing the smash cake and cupcakes.
^the gift table plus a Happy Birthday book by Dr Seuss that we used as a guest book for everyone to sign and a 1-12 month picture frame
^Peyton’s smash cake!
And then it was time to party!
^Forest read (parts) of The Lorax to the kids
^and then we all planted some Truffala seeds!
I was nervous about Peyton’s reaction when everyone gathered around to sing happy birthday but I don’t know why… Peyton loved it! She smiled at everyone and clapped when we were all done singing!
^Mmmmmm…. she would say after every bite.
Wrapping paper and tissue paper are Peyton’s jam so she liked opening presents!
^this wrinkly-nose-face is new and it cracks me up!!
^more wrinkly-nose going on!
^after giving kisses to her baby doll
^close to over-it (but that suit is so cute!!)
^big gift from daddy and mommy
After everyone left, we made sure to grab a few family pictures with the birthday girl!
Daddy and Mommy love you so much! We love watching you grow and learn new things every day! We love your snuggles and kisses and your sweet laugh. We pray for you now and for your future; for who you will become. Dream big, baby girl, and keep God in your heart!
Love, Daddy and Mommy
