Tola’s 1st Birthday!


 My sweet baby is 1 today!!!! ONE!!!!!!!!!!!! I know everyone says it but WHERE DID THE TIME GO?????  With a second child I sure did enjoy this time better as I was less of a freak…freaking out about every little thing as a first time parent is natural but you miss being able to actually enjoy all the little moments…so this time I really tried to take it slow and enjoy my little babe.

There are so many things about having a little baby that are so lovely and I’ll never get back but having more sleep nowadays sure is nice!
I’m so proud of this little gal, she was born in New York City  on a snowy night and rode a yellow taxi home!  I feel guilty about living my dream sometime and not having the green grass or the big bath for my children but they don’t seem to care…at least for now my girls love living in NYC in our 3rd floor walk up!
 Here is the inspiration of my decorations for the b-day party we’re having this weekend…hope to get a great shot so we can all look at it later and reminisce.
Happy Birthday Tolusia Heyward Reeves!!!  We love you!   You are truly out little sunshine!
Do you have any other cool ideas for a b-day party decor?  Please share!
