Emma turned one on September 3 and we celebrated by having a family dinner with grandparents. It was fun to get that time to celebrate and watch her devour her cupcake on her actual birthday! The following Sunday we hosted a big birthday party for her with friends and family.
The theme was a garden party and we served BBQ pork sliders with three different salads - quinoa, lentil and cobb. The party favors were tomato seed starter kits and we had a water slide in the backyard for the older kids (it was a hot day!). My mom made the carrot cupcakes and Emma's cake (gluten, dairy and sugar free!) and I made the coconut cream frosting for her cake. It wasn't as messy as regular frosting, but she loved the taste of it…and no allergic reactions at the party!
We were so blessed to have so many friends and family come to celebrate our baby turning one! She loved opening her presents and all of her new toys, books and clothes. Mom and dad were excited that family helped us start a college fund for her!
