I can't believe my baby Adra is one!! It's as if I blinked and a year went by. I would be lying if I didn't say I'm a little sad about it, because she isn't my tiny baby anymore...well not that she was ever really that tiny being born at almost 10 pounds! LOL. Adra has been the best addition to our family, and she really has been the sweetest, easy going baby. It has been so much fun watching her grow and learn. She looks up to her big sisters like crazy, and loves playing with them. She started walking at 10 months because of it ;) I was hoping she would be a later walker, but nope!! Haha.
Even though Adra has been my easy baby, she did not make her birthday photoshoot simple at all! LOL. She was not interested in the cake (and it took me a long time to make because I am not a the best cake maker. Haha). She kept wanting to run off to find her sisters instead. I had to keep chasing her, putting her back in the photoshoot set up, then rush back into position to get the right shots before she ran off again. My secret to the photo directly below, is that I put Cheerios on the cake stand so she would reach for them.
Adra looked so precious, and I absolutely LOVE the way my vision came together for her photos! Adra always gets so happy when she looks at the big paper flowers on the wall in her bedroom, so I figured a flower theme cake smash would be perfect for her!! I have two ladies to majorly thank for making this exact set up possible. Jannet, maker of Krafty Dekor made Adra's stunning custom glitter/paper flower cake topper and "one" sign. Karen, maker behind Ellis Originals crafted the perfectly matching flower crown! Karen also made the beautiful flower crowns for my maternity shoot when I was pregnant with Adra, so I knew she would create the perfect crown, and she did! The garland and twinkle lights are from Coterie.
I love every last detail. I always want to remember these sweet tiny hands and feet. Bracelet is by our long time friend, Sinthia, at Macs Chic Designs. We have sooo much of her jewelry, my girls have loads of fun playing dress up with it! Adra got so excited to put this on ;) Adra's expression is too cute in this photo. I set her on this rocking chair to slow her down from running away and it worked for a little bit! =) One of her favorite songs is Patty Cake, so I sung that and she was so happy to clap along to it :)
Since she wasn't very interested in the cake, I put some frosting on her lips so she could get a taste of it. She was a little surprised of the sweet buttercream frosting. LOL.
Happy birthday to my baby Adra! I look forward to continue watching her grow. Here's to another year, a year that will hopefully go by slower! Thank you for following along! Xo
