Norah Joy is One

We had the best weekend celebrating Norah Joy with some family time, donuts, a quick trip from Granda A and a little backyard party for our girl! I kinda love throwing baby birthday parties!! I know, I know, they won’t remember it, but it’s their first birthday and for me it’s more about celebrating everyone in the family! We made it! We all survived! What an awesome year!!

So I picked up the yummiest little cake from Sweet Mandy B’s…because your first taste of vanilla buttercream frosting should really be from Sweet Mandy B’s. Not sure how much Norah was actually into the whole cake thing but at least the big kids definitely appreciated helping her out with it! Who needs forks on birthdays!! Am I right, kids!? ;)

The sun shone and the back garden was filled with friends who feel like family. We’re so very thankful for you.

To our sweet, sweet Norah, here are some things we just love about you:

…your little scoot and how you clean my floors, when we say ‘KISS’, you’re always mouth, open and ready, that little giggle of yours, the way you wiggle and point when you spot the park or swings nearby and your fierce mama love!! Can’t wait to watch you grow and discover more this next year and of course introduce you to family and friends in Ireland this Summer!!

Norah Joy you are loved, happiest first birthday to you baby girl!!! x
