she is ONE!
my beautiful, precious, funny, perfect girl is now one. she's walking and hilarious and good and fun. she loves her brother. she adores birds. she has 6 teeth and still no hair. she's sweet and expressive.
last weekend we celebrated this little one. she finally has girl toys! i love watching her stare at her baby doll and push her in the stroller. almost as much as i love when she puts her purse on her shoulder, a bracelet on her wrist, and walk around like a lady.
because of her infatuation with waving at birds (and i guess, the fact that i have dubbed her "goose") her party had a birdy theme.
i have an infatuation with these cookies... yet because of my success of adding whey protein to other baked goods, i wanted to give it a shot here. i do think it helps with the texture. not quite as crumbly. the royal icing does a great job of making them sturdy too!
whether they top your cake or get wrapped up as favors, they're certainly perfect for featuring. and almost as cute as the girl we're celebrating!
