Emma's 1 Today and Cake Reveal!

Emma is One today! I can't believe it has already been a year! It came up so fast. Before I know it she'll be running around with her big brother and sister, riding a bike, catching bugs, and going down the big kid slide.

For now though, I will enjoy the way Emma avoids being on her knees and scoots along the hardwood floor. I will smile as I watch her inch her way along the furniture and attempt balancing for those split seconds before she learns to walk. I will share her excitement as she makes her signature "ooook" or "look" as she points at everything she sees in her world. I will enjoy her smiles as she greets me on her feet from her crib in the mornings. I will feel my heart melt when she plays with the hair behind her ears as she nurses at bedtime.  And I will try to forever remember the way her face looks as she sleeps in my arms.

I love you Emma June! And am so thankful for the spirit you have brought to our home. Now I hope down the road you don't mind the things I will dress you in and feed you today just so I can capture a cute birthday shot. I am considering letting you dig into the 8" round cake that I just finished decorating but that might not be such a great idea if I plan on using that for the guests this weekend. (By the way it was something I got off of Pinterest) Happy Birthday baby girl!

That is probably the prettiest cake I have ever seen. I can fake my way through most things crafty but NOT cake decorating. You are talented!
