First Birthday Party

Kaden's birthday dress was made by her Donna Ma. Black and white polka dots with a red monogram fit our ladybug theme well. Thanks so much Donna!
This past weekend we invited all our family and friends over to help celebrate Kaden's first birthday. This Thursday will mark one year for our sweet baby girl. We went with a ladybug theme using red, black, pink, and lime green colors. Here is a banner I made with my new Cricut machine.

Instead of giving Kaden a bunch of things for her first birthday we asked our guests to make a donation in Kaden's name to Shriners Children's Hospital in Lexington. Since Kaden was treated there for hip dysplasia we felt we could help do something to give back.

Kaden was super curious about her giant cupcake. At first she delicately touched the top.
Before long she was licking the side.
Finally, she grabbed the whole thing like a bottle and went to town. It was fun to see her get her first taste of something super sweet!

Aunt Sarah and Cousin AJ sent these pretty gerber daisies. They made a great center piece for the big day. The ladybug decoration in the middle was made to go with Kaden's party theme.

We had yummy white cupcakes. I made these cupcake decorations to fit Kaden's ladybug theme.

Marissa, Bailey and lots of Kaden's family helped celebrate. Tatum, Chloe and Anderson were there too!

Kaden loved seeing Elly Kate too. Kaden's other friends Jacob & Lucas, Brandt, Preston, and Grayson were there too!

We had a great time and enjoyed seeing everyone. It meant a lot to us for everyone to come see our sweet girl. Thanks to everybody for making it a fun day!
