We celebrated Cecilia’s 1st Birthday on March 20th.
We had a low key, simple 1st birthday celebration with our family.
The boys picked out presents for her. We colored on our art paper to make colorful wrapping paper and they helped me wrap her presents. It was fun watching their excitement for sister as we colored and wrapped.
We kept the decorations simple and made two pink, purple and white paper chains. One hung behind her high chair and the other was between our living room and kitchen. Making the paper chain was a fun art project. We also blew up several pink balloons and all 3 kids enjoyed playing with those.
This year, her gifts were ‘need, wear, read.’
Summer pajamas were a need. (Her brothers picked these out!)
She can wear her new sandals all summer. (These are soft soled Robeez.)
She can read this touch and feel board book, Just Like Mommy. (And, it’s fun that the author of this book’s name is Cecilia!)
When we got home from dinner we lit her candle, sang happy birthday and let her eat a soaked sourdough applesauce muffin. She loved the muffin and it was fun watching her eat the entire thing!
Our celebration was simple, but it was a wonderful way to celebrate one year of our sweet baby girl. It’s crazy to think that a year has already passed since she was born but it’s been one amazing year with our darling little daughter!
