Miss Coco turned 1 this week, and we had a small tea party for her with some of our new friends. It was a lot of fun! There were as usual a few handmade items to celebrate the day, some made by me and some made by my very talented mother in law.
I whipped up a birthday banner out of some scraps of cotton to use for all of our family celebrations. Coco's name was made with leftover scraps from the skirt she wore, a Lazy Days skirt in some of my favorite Heather Bailey Freshcut fabric (purchased while pregnant, made the skirt while home with an infant, and now at a year I think it will fit her for at least another year...). And made her a crown that should fit her even as an adult (it fits me, for when I need to feel like a queen I guess).
She also wore her new '1' t-shirt appliqued by Grandma. And she received her very own handmade Raggedy Ann doll, made by Grandma, and she came complete with a dress to match Coco's Easter dress. Grandma also sent me the dress pattern for Annie so I can make more matching dresses, I am excited about that!
Happy Birthday to a wonderful girl, who has brought much delight to us through the ups and downs of this exciting year~
