She's turning 1!

I can not believe that almost a year has passed and that we'll no longer have a baby but a toddler! The 9 months that I was pregnant passed by agonizingly slowly- I just couldn't wait to meet this baby! This past year however, has flown by in the blink of an eye!

How did you guys celebrate your little one's first birthday? I know that there are 2 camps here, there are the ones that say "it's a celebration so CELEBRATE" and the other that says "the kid's not going to remember anything anyway so what's the point?".

I think Karim and I fall somewhere in between both camps. We definitely think her first birthday is something to celebrate- but also recognize that we're going to remember this more than she is! 

We've decided to do a small scale celebration for her first birthday. Nothing too fancy like a Kim Kardashian style Kidchella, (although, I'm not judging here- it looked like fun to be honest! No seriously, look at this.) Instead, we've opted to do a cake smash! It's basically a photo session where you dress your child up, place a beautifully decorated mini cake in front of him/her and wait for it's complete destruction. It's adorable! I'll be taking the photographs myself :) 

I've been prepping for it for a while, so hopefully everything goes smoothly!
