Our baby angel turned 1 today! We had a birthday party with friends on Sunday. Everyone had a lot of fun, especially the birthday day.
Party started at 11am, just few minutes after she woke up from morning. She was ready for the party. 🙂
I ordered a birthday hat for her and I love how cute she looks with it. She was in great mood that day. Smiling to every guests and doing all the fun things grandma props her to do (clapping her hands, waving bye, saying papa, mama and grandpa).
I was such a proud and happy mama.
She’s such an adorable, easy going, happy baby… she only “complains” when daddy is going… otherwise she’s zero-complaint baby
although she’s not into toys yet, she spent some time exploring the gifts.
trying to “play together” with other babies.
but mostly simply smiling to everyone and enjoying the party
I enjoyed catching up with friends as well
particularly with miss Sofia who was excited the whole week for the party because she got to wear her new Elsa dress
we ordered the cake from Harris Teeters this year. I simply showed them the picture of how I’d like the cake and they made it perfectly.
can’t believe Sofia is already a big girl, like a real princess
what a happy day. It amazes us how time flies, a year before I was in labor, not sure who is this girl. And now, I can’t imagine a life without her. Her silly smiles melt my heart, EVERYDAY.
I had prepared a spread of food for our guests including egg curd tart
sauteed vermicelli with chicken and vegetables. It doesn’t look nice but it was one of the most popular dish of the day, many friends went for second and third servings
chinese radish cake
salad with cilantro cashew dressing. It wasn’t as good as I expected but at least it was colorful
Sofia and I made pink cupcake with natural food color (dry raspberries)
and the most popular dish that I forgot to take a pic before they were all gone, korean baby ribs.
Although I was exhausted by the end of the day due to a stressful week at work, 8+18 miles run, and all the party preparation, I was happy! Happy to be the mama of two lovely girls in my life. 🙂
