My little girl turns one year old. Party #1.

My little Rose is one year old.

One.

Year.

Old.

Sniff.  Sniff.

Ok, technically she is 1 year and 1 week.  I have been putting off posting about her birthday.  I think because I’m in denial.  Denial that it was over a year ago that she showed her sweet face to the world.  Denial that over a year ago that she entrenched herself permanently into my heart.

Sigh….

Since both her daddy and her grandfather were off doing a boy scout thing, I decided to have Rose’s big birthday party a week late.  However, I had to have a little get together on her actual birthday complete with a smash cake.  I know she would have been so disappointing if I didn’t.  I never would have heard the end of it.  It was all for her.   Really.

For the smash cake, I found a peach cake recipe that I tweaked to be more baby friendly.  It was pretty yummy for the adults too.  I’ll post the recipe later.

We set up a photo op in front of the roses Steve gave me for our anniversary.  Rose promptly stuck her foot in the cake.  Then ate the frosting off her foot.  Then went back for more with her hand.  I think she liked it.

As shown here, she didn’t have any issues diving right in once she was in the official ‘cake eating chair’.

 Lots of Rose kisses were given (pre cake).
