Merritt's 1st Birthday Party

Can you believe that Merritt is already one year old?!

We had a small, family birthday party at home for her, and it was really nice and relaxing.  We had some photos of her around the house, and I made a photo garland for the mantel with her monthly photos.

We had barbecue and the fixings, and Merritt seemed to enjoy most of the food.  We are so happy to have a kid who likes to eat!  Jason and I bought her a tea set with a picnic basket, so we used that as the centerpiece for the table. 

We made cupcakes and little gingham bow toppers.  It's the little things that make me happy.

Merritt didn't really know what to do with the cupcake.  It was her first taste of cake, and I'm not sure she loved it.  She'll come around though.

She was so excited about the presents, even though I really think that she was just excited about the ribbons.  You've got to love this age!

It was a wonderful way to celebrate the first year of our sweet, little girl!  It was a great day.
