Claire's First Birthday

The first birthday is a big ONE - literally and figuratively. It's a first step towards toddlerdom, signaling a transition away from babyhood. Baby steps and baby proofing aren't far off, if not already in full effect, and personalities are coming into view. And if you're Miss Claire, it also means that you get an awesome cake (with her likeness!) to dive into.

When I arrived at Claire's home, the house was bustling with people, the arranging of last minute decorations, getting food out of the oven, popping open a few bottles of beer, and greeting each arrival with a warm hug. It felt like a home filled with love and that day, this love was centered around a fabulous little girl.

Get ready for a lot of adorableness (this girl knows how to work a camera and a room I might add), sweetness, and of course, stickiness. 

Happy Birthday Claire!
