My mom took these sweet photos of me with my birthday cake on my first birthday. My sweet, sentimental mom saved the dress (and probably all the gifts as well :), and brought it to me when Evie was born. We decided to recreate the photo shoot with Evie and see if we could see a resemblance between the photos. My verdict? I can't really tell if there's a resemblance, but I cannot figure out how my mom managed to get such good photos because I found this photo shoot to be a messy endeavor. I think I must have been a much more restrained baby than Miss E is. :)
Here I am on my first birthday:
My sweet Aunt Dede feeding me cake. :)
With my dad and his amazing glasses. :)
And in the same dress, here's Evie!
It did not take her long to dig in...
We had to pull Evie away from the cake before I got too many pictures, so I decided to try for a few more the next day with just a cupcake. Things got really messy again (I got a few pictures and then ended up with a smashed cupcake and two children crying because they weren't getting to eat the whole thing). But the pictures look pretty sweet... :)
Me on the left, Evie on the right. I see some similarities, but all in all, I think we look pretty different!
I love this picture. Charlie was making Evie laugh, and I just love the joyous look on her face. She adores that boy, and I am just having the best time watching them interact right now.
Sweet girl in a sweet dress.
Thank you Grandma Ali for saving that dress for us. What a special photo shoot!
P.S. If you are starting to get burned out on Evie first-birthday posts, then you can relax. We are all done! On to Charlie's half-birthday... :)
