Baby’s First Year Birthday Cake Smash!

Our baby girl, Nora, is one year old today!  I can’t believe my baby is growing up so fast.  She is a mellow, giggly, happy girl almost all of the time, and she is one of my earliest talkers. She has already said “mama”, “dada”, “more”, “owie” and “hello”. Nora has also just started walking about 4-5 steps at a time. We love this little girl! She melts all our hearts, especially her 3 big brothers.

In honor of her first birthday, my friend Brittany with Briar Photography helped me style a first birthday photography session and cake smash.  We went to Eaton Canyon in Pasadena, which would have been great except they closed the gates at 7pm, so Brittany being an awesome friend, took our cars one at a time and parked them outside the wilderness area and walked back.  That is a true friend! I was so grateful for her saving the day.

I love Nora’s wobbly standing!

Those eyes! We still cannot tell what color they really are.  They sometimes look blue, golden and green.  Maybe she will be a true Hazel.

Isn’t this the cutest little rocking chair?  We borrowed it from a friend, and I’m so glad because she is adorable in it.  Look at that little foot pose!

She is a perfect little lady with her roaring 20’s ruffle romper.

Nora could not stop playing with her pearls! I think she likes them.

This cake is adorable!  My friend, Crystal, made this pretty little pink rosette cake and it was almost too cute to smash.  Almost.

Nora was so dainty that she wouldn’t even touch the cake at first.

When she tried it, she wasn’t sure what to think.  She looks pretty quizzical.

But then she decided that she likes cake after all.

“It’s my party and I’ll cry if I want to! You would cry too if it happened to you!”
