A {tiny} Birthday Party

So,  here are the pictures I took of all the goodies at Miss Pepper Mae's First Birthday Party.  Malinda did such an amazing job,  we will be getting all our cakes and desserts from "The Atomic Bakery" from now on!  Most desserts went with our "tiny" theme,  including tiny tarts, tiny sugar cookies, tiny cupcakes, etc.   Enjoy the pics!

Handmade felt birthday cake from Grandma CC

So this is a bit late but it's better than never!  Miss Pepper is 1 year old and showing more and more of her personality every day.  Her 1st b-day was wonderful,  thank you everyone who was apart of it!  Honestly,  I'm having withdrawals from the leftover cake!  It was to-die-for, seriously!  Now for some updates on our little angel on earth :-)

  • She started walking literally on her 1st Birthday,  and hasn't stopped since!  
  • When she walks,  she prefers to be holding something... 3 times her size.  I think she likes the challenge.  This might be a big pillow, watering can, football, etc.
  • She has discovered dropping things behind her head.  I don't know why she's so amused by this,  but she will grab objects and drop them behind her head like it's second nature... then goes about her business.
  • She not only says "dada" and "mama" but "uh oh"... so cute!
  • She puts herself to work,  literally.  This includes taking clothes out of the clothes hamper and putting them back in,  or taking all her toys and throwing them in the bathtub.  
  • She still loves to cuddle.
  • Currently the funniest thing to date is her getting to "walk" Dakota.  She holds the leash and belly laughs the whole time,  especially when she drops it on the ground.  I have never heard this girl laugh so hard!
  • Her highlight of the day is taking a wagon ride around the lake with cousin Jackson.  
  • She is slightly obsessed with her headbands.  She will point to them for me to put one on her then wear it the entire day.  I think she figures thats what girls are suppose to do,  so she wants to do it!
  • She loves to play outside,  and stands at the door crying until we go!
  • She has stolen our hearts and won't give them back!  Love you my precious 1 year old!
We are excited about this weather,  and can't wait to get some fall-time activities on the way!  This includes going to the pumpkin patch and zoo... and lots and lots of pictures of course.  Stay Tuned!


little red {and the big bad wolf}

So,  couldn't you guess this is what's on my mind?  Halloween is just around the corner and my thoughts have gone straight from Pepper Mae's first birthday to her "first" halloween costume.  Now that she's walking,  what's better and more adorable than Little Red Riding Hood?  Nothing I can think of.  And the big bad wolf... that's going to be no other than Jackson {although,  we have Dakota our 2 lb. yorkie as backup... we are going to try to spare her the torture}.  Of course I can't wait to start figuring out this costume!  She will have more of a cape than the picture shown.... but isn't that image to die for?  Stay tuned for the 1 year post for our precious girl!
