Nola was a a little overwhelmed by all the excitement circling around her at first.
It was so wonderful to see my little one year old's little face slowly realize that indeed, this day was all about her :)
She loved it when we all gathered around her to sing Happy Birthday.
She began to cheer and clap and dance with great exuberance.
Matilda played along on the piano, a little out of step but perfect all the same.
We had to sing Happy Birthday at least 20 times through the morning just for all those sweet smiles.
Each of the girls made a beautiful card for their baby sis.
This is Fi's card. She crayoned a picture of an elf and a rainbow.
Nola "cuddled" the elf with glee.
I wrapped a few little gifts in play silks to make it easier for her to unwrap them.
Here is a little cushion dolly I stayed up till midnight making on a whim.
She is filled with the softest lambs wool and is super cuddly.
The girls christened her Marigold, then Rose then Petal. Petal seems to have stuck the longest so far I think she looks a little like a flower petal don't you?
And here is Strawberry Shortcake, named by Boo for Nola. She will be Petal's big sister :)
Nola's birthday breakfast muffin went down well :)
Matilda's birthday card
Nola loves her whistle.
My beautiful, cheeky, spirited, funny, sweet, cuddly, snuggly, clever and cute one year old!!!
