A couple of weeks ago we celebrated Lily's birthday with a small, intimate BBQ at our place, and it was absolutely perfect. It downpoured (just like last year!) so we played inside, painted, and blew bubbles on the porch. Lily had the most fun, and it was so amazing to see the joy on her face! The neatest part was seeing how much more involved she was this year vs. her first birthday! She was tearing into birthday presents, being blown away by cards that played music, digging right in to her cake, and blowing out the candles all on her own! I think we also created a new tradition of making the cake ourselves each year and having Lily help decorate it! I'm not one to throw big parties, so it meant so much to me to have all the people we love in place to celebrate our sweet girl!
What sort of birthday traditions did you have growing up?!
