Somerset Turns 1!

Somerset's 1 year photo with Joy the Owl. She has grown so much!
I took Somerset for a walk on her actual birthday. She sported her new Hello Kitty sunglasses.
Being presented the cake. She actually didn't get the cake all over her face like I had hoped for.
On her birthday. Looking so pretty!

Our baby girl isn't much of a baby any longer....she turned 1! We had an amazing birthday celebration with friends and family and even though she didn't know it was her birthday, I think she felt all the love surrounding her.

We had about 30 friends, family and children over and even though our backyard b-b-q bash was moved inside due to the rain, we made the most of the day and had a great time. Our family all chipped in to help feed the masses and we had a delicious meal of ribs, b-b-q chicken, beans, coleslaw, potato salad, red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting and a Hello Kitty cake. Joe also was proud to serve his home brew, that was gone by the end of the party. Everything was scrumptious.

Somerset was showered with toys and other adorable gifts! She and Leo have been having a blast playing with all her new things. She also received a new car seat and shoes from G-pops and Grandma Paula, a 1st birthday portrait session and diapers from my parents and some generous monetary donations. What a lucky girl!

The best part of the party was getting together with all our friends and family. We are so lucky to have such amazing people in our lives and so is Somerset.
