Lila’s 2nd Birthday

22 Mar

Lila’s birthday was wonderful. We had sunny, warm weather and Lila was surrounded by friends and family that love her dearly. This birthday was quite different than last year because Lila was able to maneuver on her own and her little hands were constantly reaching for food. We had to keep an eye on the cupcake table to make sure she didn’t lick the icing off every cupcake.

The theme for her party was Charlotte’s Web. I had envisioned more of a farm party but it took a turn toward bright pops of color, which I was also happy with. I have a love for bright colors and gravitate towards anything that pops.

I have lots of photos from the big day:)

I loved doing the bright pom poms, it really added an extra layer to the room

Fun color all around!

My mom made the cute little pig cupcakes and they were as tasty as they are adorable. The cake was made by a lady that made my birthday cakes growing up. The flavor brought back so many memories.

My mom had this cute chicken fabric laying around and the colors were just right. I also got the idea for the little message toothpicks from Pinterest.

Lila ate food just as fast as would could prepare it. Some days that girl is a bottomless pit.

I thought this picture was hilarious. Everyone is looking at pictures of Lila while Lila is sitting there in real life. She loves looking a pictures of herself, I can't blame her though....she's cute:)

The only way I could get her to take her eyes off herself was to announce that Elmo was at the party.

I wasn't lying, see Elmo did show up.

Blowing out candles. She tried to smother the flames with her hands first but we stopped her just in time.

I think the highlight of the day for Lila was when she received her new wagon from Papaw Barry. She stayed in it for about an hour straight.

Thankful for such a beautiful day and such a beautiful girl.

This past year went by too quickly and I have a feeling they are only going to speed up as we move forward. I am excited about the future but I’m trying to remember to live in the moment and make the most of each new memory.
