Scenes from a birthday weekend

A Peanut in a pumpkin patch.









Family time at the zoo.









Gifts!








Birthday cake!















For the Peanut's birthday we decided to spread out her birthday celebrations because A) we have a small house, B) we didn't want her to become overwhelmed and C) we really wanted to spend her actual birthday alone, just the three of us. Over the next two weekends we'll be having small parties, for family and friends, but having the time alone this weekend was very special to us all.

We did the same thing for Ben's first birthday (for the same reasons too!) We went out to an Italian restaurant and bought him a piece of tiramisu, I though he was going to do a face-plant. So cute.
And what an adorable little *peanut* YOU have.
Happy Birthday, sweet baby!

Great pics! Did you dress her in orange BECAUSE you were going to the pumpkin patch? That's totally something I would do.

nomotherearth - I have to admit that I pulled out that outfit precisely for that reason. It was still a bit big on her, but I thought with her orange hair, and the ornge pumpkins, that it would be perfect. I have friends that tell me I should probably hang my head in shame over that admissions (I'm looking at you Lady A!)

We spread out our children's birthdays, too--it's so much better that way.
