Baby She's 1

On Friday my baby girl Rowan turned 1. It seems like just yesterday I was trying to get on the computer after having her to blog about the new baby's arrival.
We had a small party for her on Saturday, both my parents and Ron's came for the gathering. I baked her a cupcake cake the night before, I was trying to make it into the shape of a heart. It didn't turn out quite how I wanted but hey...I tried. She loved the cake, so I guess it really didn't matter in the end. In the two months since my last post, I made her a hat for the big day. I made her the birthday cake hat from Susan B. Anderson's Ittty Bitty Hats. I've been just itching to get it up here too, but I figured I'd wait for her birthday.

As well as spending time outside with the girls and going to Paisley's soccer games, I have been knitting. I'm currently working on a baby blanket for my sister, it's the ripple baby blanket from More than one way to knit a hat. Ironically, I started it the night she went into labour without even knowing it. She wasn't actually due until June 25th, so she was well over a month early. She had her little girl Halle Brianne Rose on her birthday (May 22nd) which is kind of neat and at least I' ll never forget her birthday (I'm good with remembering birthdays anyway). I also finished the sweater I was making for Rowan. I promise, I will post pictures soon. (Famous last words eh??)
