Abigail Turns 1

Abigail is officially 1, y’all.  Where has the time gone?!  I feel like almost no time has passed since she was born.  This year has flown by.

It’s been amazing to watch her grow.  The fact that I’m incredibly blessed to be able to spend this precious time with another child is not lost on me.  She’s a joy.  She’s so different from Addalee, which has been quite interesting (and will continue to be, I’m sure). 

For her special day, we had a small cupcake themed birthday party.

This is the giant cupcake smash cake I made.  This thing was HUGE!  It used 1.5 cake mixes.  

Just some of the cupcakes

I used the monthly stats pictures to make a banner.  It was so neat for everyone to be able to see how much she changed from month to month.

Full monthly picture banner.

 The weather was gorgeous, and warm! We all took the opportunity to get outside and Addalee raced with Granna (my mom).


  1. I really can't believe she's one. I'm so glad you did those monthly stat pictures, they are really so nice and a great way to show how much she's grown. People always say the second and third child don't get special things like this and you have done very special things for all three of your girls. Love the pictures and the girl! Happy birthday Abby, it's been so fun to watch you grow. Xoxo Auntie Keleen ;)

  2. Was just going to type what Keleen did. I love that you kept up with her monthly signs, I am sure hoping that I will be able to do the same with Mary's. I love big sisters pigtails! You have three beautiful girls. Can't believe the littlest is ONE!

  3. The pictures are great and the smash cake is so cute (good job, Mommy!). Abigail is such a doll and the monthly picture banner is such a wonderful keepsake for you girls. I'm so glad the party was a success and that you even scored with great weather that day. I was even thinking that I was so happy you guys got a break from the terrible cold for her birthday. You're such a good Mommy to your girls. Thanks for sharing this.

  4. Yeah, I'm sort of with the others. You were JUST pregnant. Though thankfully you're not anymore. :)

    So thrilled you've made it a whole year (I feel like that's practically a celebration in itself!) with your third baby girl. Congrats to a year and having sisters. Wishing the eldest sister was around to help and celebrate. Always.

  5. Super late to the party, but so great to see Caroline's youngest sister celebrating her first birthday. You make such beautiful children. <3
