BabyPunk's first birthday was yesterday! (4/26)
i cant even believe it!

i didnt really have a theme unless you count "my mom is a cheap mustard and made everything herself" a theme.
it was very DIY and i made everything myself literally from scraps. i was/am so stupidly proud of everything.

i think it went very well!

BP did better than i expected considering her dislike of other humans. i couldnt really get her to nap before hand and when i finally got her asleep it was like 10 mins before her party was supposed to start and then my brother showed up and decided it would be fun to ring the doorbell 100000 times and my dogs went ape shiitake insane.

i did a photoshoot at home with her.
this was the best one i got considering lighting issues and moving baby issues

Image

her high chair

Image

our fireplace. everything is paint splattered if you cant tell by the pics

Image

my beautiful table. the things in the bags on the left are vegan sugar cookies (the #1) that i made and iced myself. similar to the ones on the plate but all the #1.

the cupcakes are the basic chocolate cupcakes from VCTOTW and the basic frosting.
Image

BabyPunk does not eat any solid food and will not allow any food near her mouth so this is how pleased she was about her cupcake and me cramming frosting in her mouth. she wouldnt smash the cake. she lightly poked it once.

Image

my handmade invitations

Image

the tags for the cookie bags

Image

the wall in my kitchen (apparently before i added the balloons now that i look at the pic)

Image

the cookies

Image

i stole this idea from my friend's party for her daughter last month. apparently it's a big thing on pinterest but it's usually a chalkboard. i paid 50 cents for the poster board and painted it myself

Image

excuse my face, my mom got me this Ruby Roth book for her

Image

my in laws bought her a chef's hat, an apron, and oven mitt. soo cute

Wow, that is 1,000% more effort than I put into Westiebaby's birthday, you're amazing!

I can hardly believe BabyPunk is a whole year old already, I remember you posting here before you decided to try and get pregnant and now look at her! Such a beautiful, big, clever girl! So pleased she did ok with the crowds of not-Mommy at her party, she looks super adorable in her chef hat!!

Lisa!!! That sign is so funny!! I love it. "I do not like: sleeping, eating." Ahahahaha!
And I LOVE LOVE LOVE that everything is handmade -- how special and marvellous!!!

[Vax is 1 in a month. And Raygold is 4 next week (how?!). Beety is 6 a few days before Vax's birthday. They are all getting one knitted item and a cross-stitched bookmark with their name and some little cross-stitched doo-dah that they like (Beety is getting a train, Raygold is getting a car, Vax is getting...a boob? I haven't decided).]

Send my love to BabyPunk!!! xoxo

Aw, you did such a great job! I can't believe she's one already. Her pictures always crack me up. The cake one is great! You should make an Unimpressed Baby calendar or something.

Yes - the cake pic cracked me up too...it is even better that she didn't go to town on the cupcake because it would have been totally uncharacteristic...

thanks everyone! i had a lot of fun making the decorations. it's been so long since i did anything creative like i used to do all the time that it was really awesome for me to do it.

the party went well and we got some fun toys and some great books. BP LOVES books. (yay!)

as soon as my video finally uploads to youtube ill share her "eating" her cake.
for any unimpressed baby fans it's a must watch.

i will say though my in laws keep bringing more and more and more stuff that used to belong to my husband and is now ours. it's not even all like cool sentimental stuff. it's literally everything he ever owned and my house is full of it. for my baby shower they gave me this weird odd creepy painting that was supposed to be in my husband's nursery when he was a baby and they never got around to hanging it but guess who they managed to get it framed for!!!!
for BP's birthday they brought this GINORMOUS rocking horse into my rather small house for my tiny baby. it has no handles for her to hold onto and it takes up a ton of space and i think she is way too small for it. but yeah it used to be my husbands.

im putting it in the attic. i mean at least that's kind of cool and sentimental but damn it's so big and so inappropriate for her size and age.....ugh.....seriously people.....

here is classic unimpressed baby with her cupcake.

for those of you familiar wtih baby signs you can see her pretty blatantly doing the milks sign a few times.

i knew she would not put it anywhere near her mouth but i thought she might smush it around. she's pretty tired by this point though and you can see her rubbing her eyes towards the end.
i guess my husband didnt get me on video cramming frosting in her mouth so the picture of her reaction will have to do!

i dont know how to embed a video so here is the link

Ahahahaha! That happens with my parents sometimes. Fortunately, we live in a different country, so my old things can go straight to the charity shop pile if I want. But anyway you have my sympathies!

One time my husband's parents came to visit and he asked them to bring his bike. They said they didn't have room in the car, but then showed up with 4 huge boxes of junk. One of them was a box of worn out sneakers (!!), another was a box of empty two-ring binders, one of them had towels, another had 3 bowls, a plate, and an old saucepan!! I was kind of mad at the time, but now I think it's kind of hilarious, driving all the way up to Scotland with a box full of worn out sneakers!!

Yes. Oh god yes.

I love your decorative theme with the splatters, super cute and I bet it was fun to make.
