Kenley's Birthday Weekend!

What a weekend! 

I CANNOT believe my baby is an entire year old! This weekend was all about her {which really, when is it not all about her?} and we celebrated until we couldn't celebrate any more!

My weekend started promptly at 5pm on Thursday. I went grocery shopping for the party, got a manicure and spent the evening working on dessert/party prep. Kenley's Godmama and Auntie, Nicole, arrived from Florida and spent the evening with the birthday girl.

Friday morning I woke up with a tear in my eye. HOW was it possible that my sweet baby girl was officially a year old? I actually set my alarm for 1:07am {when Kenley was born}, so I could wake up and remember that moment and sneak in to give K a birthday kiss.
I know, I'm a cheese ball.

When Kenley woke up we celebrated with some balloons, a birthday yogurt {her favorite}, and lots of snuggles and play time.
Jason had to work for a bit and little love needed a nap, which gave me some time to work on more party prep. We had a couple of errands to run and things to pick up for the party, but after that it was ALL about spending time with my family and celebrating Kenley's birthday, starting with birthday coffee with yia yia {my mom}!


Once Jason was home, Kenley opened her present and then we took off for the Minnesota Sealife Aquarium.
We spent the afternoon as a family of three, looking at the fishies, and loving on our sweet birthday girl.

Then, that evening we met up with 1/2 of Kenley's grandparents and her Godmama for a birthday dinner.

Once the birthday girl was in bed it was time for mama to finish up all the party crafts and baking.


Saturday was all about the BIG first birthday party! I had been planning this party for MONTHS and I was so excited that the day had finally come. We had an incredible time and I am just so overwhelmed by the wonderful people we have in our lives who love us and love Kenley. She is such a blessed little girl and I am so grateful for all the kind and generous family and friends who joined us to celebrate!

Sunday was recovery day - sleeping, cleaning, napping and writing thank you notes. Then last night we went to my mom's to watch football.

This morning I am home spending more time with my little one year old, recovering from the weekend and bringing Kenley to her one year check-up, boo shots! Make sure to come back tomorrow because I will be sharing all of the details and decor from the party!

I'm linking up with the gorgeous Sami.

I just love that you set your alarm to sneak in and give her kisses on the minute she was born. My husband and I do the same thing with Alexa (10:02 pm). It's a little harder with Lilli (9:14am) since she's at school. But, we always make sure to note that time of the day!

What a perfect first birthday - can't wait to hear more.

Can't wait to see all the details!
