Brooklyn Bee is ONE! First Birthday's are such a fun milestone, it is well worth documenting in a photo session. When my first baby turned one, I threw an epic party. You guys, I made an array of paper mache flowers taller than me. I handmade a fringed pinata. I made a three tiered cake big enough to feed an army (then vowed never again to make a birthday cake -- PREFERRED VICTORIA BC CAKE BAKERS: Pammiecakes, M an M Sweet Treats, and Crown City Cakes), yep, I did it all. And, I only felt a teeny tiny bit silly - after all, it wasn't like Noelle was going to remember or value any of my hard work.
But, then, at the party, a new friend mentioned in passing something that has stuck with me since. She explained that First Birthdays (in however capacity you celebrate) are for moms. And moms deserve a party! In a stunning and miraculous (albeit everyday) way, I grew that baby and kept her alive for an entire year! So, a spectacular party (she would never remember) for the birthday girl and her MOM was certainly in order.
And while I have pictures of the event, I truly wish I had taken the time to document our lives when that sweet little girl was the center of our lives just as the Tang family did. How special will these photographs be to Brooklyn as she grows? Especially if another sibling or two is added in along the way?
Happy Birthday Miss Bee! I hope it is truly fabulous and that you are able to look back on these photographs and realize just how love you are.
