Baby's First Birthday Presents

My pal Ava celebrated her first birthday on Saturday. A very big day in every girl's life. It included showing how well she walks (Oh how I love to see babies toddle. They look like little drunk people who sort of Weeble Wobble.), sort of saying "ball", sticking her fingers in cake after lots of prompting from the 30 guests staring at her, and proclaiming that the card envelopes and boxes were the most fabulous part of her pile of presents. Babies really have quite a great thing going for them. They walk when they want to and get pushed in strollers that include snacks and cup holders when they want to rest and nearly everything they do is photogenic. Such a life!

To celebrate, I made her a few gifts to wear in the coming year. A onesie/skirt combo with pink flamingo fabric. I just started making skirts to match onesies and I'm loving them. The elastic waist should ensure that it fits for a good while, even if just over a diaper at the pool.

And a pillowcase dress that ties on one shoulder instead of two with a giant chocolate covered strawberry. I am obsessed with my strawberries this season. I've added them to onesies, bibs and now a dress. Looking at the photo I am wondering if it's perhaps a bit too giant but as I've already given it away, she will just have to live with it.
