The Cutest Little Cupcake!
Let me start this post by saying that this baby girl is really special to me. Marlee Addison is the daughter of one my best friends/cousins. Wendy and I have been super-sister-close since we were born. She is three months older than me, and we were always inseparable...until she moved away our freshman year of high school. Despite the distance, we stayed close and we try to spend as much time together as we can. When we can't, we spend hours on the phone. When Wendy was pregnant, my biggest (selfish) wish was that she would have a little girl as well so that they could be close like we were. Well my wish came true!
Marlee's party was cupcake themed, and it was adorable. She used all of the bright versions of the pastels, and she had lots of little personal touches sprinkled (haha) in around the house.
Marlee's cake was one of my favorite decorations. Her aunt and uncle bought her cake, and I think they did a really good job picking it out.
Marlee was an angel during her cake smash. She ate the cake, offered to share with others, and didn't melt down even once.
After she was done with her cake, we took the little kids outside to join the big kids for water fun.
Mikayla really enjoyed the slide.
Emmy liked the pool, but Marlee enjoyed drinking the water.
Joey & Michael did canon balls in the big kid pool.
After Marlee had enjoyed the pool long enough, we went back inside to open presents. We bought Marlee a couple of outfits and a pair of matching shoes, but I had to buy her a fun gift too. We got her a Minnie Mouse stuffed animal that matches Emmy's. I think she liked it!
We ran outside to snap a family pic before Marlee could fall asleep.
Emmy enjoyed hanging out with Joe.
Happy 1st Birthday Marlee! We sure do love you girly! :)
