Eliza– 1st Birthday!!!

One year ago today, my life changed forever when baby Eliza was born! My family grew from 2 to 3!  This past year has been a blur and I learned more about love than I ever thought possible. I cannot believe my baby girl is already a year old!!! Everyday I consider myself unbelievably lucky to have her in my life!

Over the weekend, we threw Eliza her first birthday party!  Em is obsessed with Pinterest and used that site to pull together nearly every detail of the party.  She did a wonderful job planning, and I played a big part in the execution.  I’m pretty proud of the photo display and and paper lanterns that I put up : ) Wow, decorating was a ton of work!!! Emily’s sister flew in for the party as well and did a fantastic job with the cake and cupcakes.  Not only delicious, but tasty as well!

Eliza’s cake smash was the highlight of the party.  She hadn’t had sugar up till this point.  She LOVED her cake, but she kept suspiciously looking up at us to see if it was okay for her to eat this delicious desert.  She was adorable all day…it was so much fun!  I thought being a photographer was the best job in the whole world, but I’m pretty sure being a dad has superseded that job.  I love this little girl so much!!!

Enough with the writing, here are the photos!!!
