A Sock Monkey First Birthday: Part Two {Partytime!}

Millie's first birthday, continued.

Millie read her first birthday card a couple days earlier.

Also, here's a couple shots of her using the birthday present Sky got from a neighbor's garage sale the day before. $2, and the kid walks around with it all day. 
Yes, I said walks with it. Sniff. When she takes her first 'real' steps, I know I'll bawl.

Her birthday dress: Tiny pink flowers, ruffles, and $3.00 on the Target clearance rack. I think yes.

Bib for the cake smash.

We also took a few shots before the party, and they turned out pretty well.

Love! You did such a great job with everything- the decorations and food! Nicely done! Also, Addison has that same dress from Target...if we lived closer we could have a "twin" playdate. (-:

How creative! I love all the decorations! And I'm practically drooling over the cupcakes - it's been 3 weeks since I've had yummy, sugary carbs!

Everything turned out darling! Looks like you have a knack for party-throwing there, miss erika. ;)

And all your photos turned out just as lovely. That first one of millie reading her card with her cute little headband is my favorite. I can see why one of her nicknames is Cheeks McGee! :)
