Emma's First Birthday

This heart-shaped cake was a sweet way to celebrate the first birthday of our early Valentine.



We crowned daughter Emma Queen of Hearts with a family dinner. With photographs of the birthday girl, a tile bearing her footprint, and a scrapbook of her first year on display, we could all marvel at the changes one year had brought. The whole evening was full of love.

The cake was a masterpiece!! She is so adorable!! You are continually creating memeories for your dear children, that they will not forget. The best part is, that you share them with us.

I love Emma's look of wonder as she's presented with her own candle lit cupcake. You have so many beautiful pictures. Thank-you for sharing. She is such a sweet little queen of hearts. xox

How beautiful! I love the tile with her little footprint on it - how did you go about doing this project?? I'd love to do this for my son's grandparents. :)

MJ, we actually did the tile at a paint-your-own-pottery studio. I took my other three children there to paint, and the lady who helped us told me they do a free footprint tile for infants. I was delighted to get this keepsake, and Baby Emma slept right through the process!

That cake is so pretty. Fit for a princess. I just found you & hope you don't mind me stoppiing by. Your sweet babies are so beautiful too. Mine are all grown. My youngest just turned 17 2 days ago. It is fun to remember when they were little. Yours remind me of that. Blessings
