First Birthday

I still can’t believe I have a baby, and I really can’t believe she just turned one! We had a sweet little celebration with family. Fern’s cake turned out cute—perfectly imperfect. She had no qualms about tearing into it and chowing down. Honestly I still feel like I have no idea what I’m doing as a mother, but somehow Fern keeps growing bigger and getting smarter every day!

By the way, I used this cake recipe and this frosting recipe. So good! To make the smaller “smash cake” I poured some of the batter into ramekins and baked and frosted it separately.

      I totally agree! That was the only thing I cared about for her first birthday celebration. :)

    She’s absolutely gorgeous! <3
    My little Julián will be 15 days old tomorrow… It kinda makes me feel better that one can feel clueless one year later, to be honest! This is HARD but isn't it worth it? Fern looks lovely and I can't believe a year has gone by already. Well done, Mama ;)

      Happy 15-day birthday to Julián! I can barely remember those days—probably from sleep deprivation, haha. Yes, hard but worth it must be the perfect description of motherhood. :)

I love your comments more than I love chocolate (almost).
