What a weekend. My little girl turned one and we celebrated the first year of her life in style with a big party at my mom and dad's house. I was telling my husband that it was the third happiest day of my life. The first was the day she was born, the second was the day of our wedding and I think it can only get better for the days that are coming. Lucia had the best day ever. I think we all went to bed with our faces hurting from all the smiles and all the laughter.
Here's (part of) our weekend in Instagram.
My sister, brother-in-law and nieces gave Lucia these new wheels as part of her gift. Yes, they spoil her and yes, she loves it.
Lucia in her stroller wearing her birthday shirt and a pink tutu that was a gift from my dear friend - it was a baby gift that finally fits my growing girl and we love it!
The child is obsessed with playing inside her laundry bag! She loves it in there!!
One of over 70 balloons that I thought we needed for the party:)
One of the gifts my parents got for Lucia...because what baby girl doesn't love a 53 inch teddy bear? God only knows where this guy will live inside our NYC apartment.
While the baby napped and I took a break from setting up, I went through my old closet and found my now vintage Nicole Miller dress that I LOVED and wore to a school dance in 1991. I just aged myself...oh well. I can't believe I was ever that tiny.
I wanted an animal themed cake and worked with the bakery to make a leopard print pattern on it. LOVE it!
Balloons in a bag before we scattered them around the yard.
Party hats complete with green faux fur!
