Sharing a little family life with ya. We hung out at the park a few weeks ago.
Charlotte turned one yesterday. I held her in my arms last night and realized that she’s starting to grow out of that little space. It’s as if she stopped being a baby and became a little girl overnight. You know that kind of emotional fullness that is all at once joyful and devastating? I have never experienced that sentiment more than in my first year of parenthood.
So we had a party. A decadently sweet get together with Charlotte’s few little friends at one of my favorite spots in town, Natasha’s Mulberry and Mott. There is no place more fanciful to have a little girl’s birthday party. I was pretty excited about letting her try her first cake, because Charlotte loves to eat. When we’re out at a restaurant and a waitress walks by with a tray of food, she exclaims “Mmmmmmmmm!!!”
Her first taste of cake, as you will see, did not go over with her as it did in my dreams. But the party couldn’t have been better. And I couldn’t love her more.
Here’s a peek at the party…
