We've all watched as precious Sofia has grown... and now our sweet baby girl is ONE!!! I really can't believe how fast time has flown. You'd think I'd realize how quickly our precious little ones grow since we were just celebrating Ridge's first birthday in April, but for some reason, Sofia's birthday seemed to come even more quickly. I think it's so shocking to me because it literally seems like 6 month old Ridge and I went to visit brand new Sofia in the hospital last week! To have been a small part of this amazing little girl's life has been such a blessing... and I'm not sure how I would have survived Ridge's first year without Sofia and her wonderful momma, Misty.
In true Misty fashion, Sofia's momma planned an awesome first birthday for her little angel. Even though it was officially the first day of fall, we were having a luau at the Valjevac home. Everything was bright, colorful, festive, and perfect for a perfectly precious princess!
Sofia, you are one lucky little girl to have such an amazing family! I hope one day you look back at these pictures and realize how much you are loved!
Everything was pretty and pink!
There were a ton of wonderful details, but I think the napkin wraps might have been my favorite!
Sofia's "watch me grow" line... I can't believe we've taken 12 of these already!!!
Ridge has enjoyed his party favor!
It's all about the details!
The cakes were wonderful!
What beautiful work!!!
The best part about a first birthday?... the smash cake, of course!!!
Not only did Sofia turn one, but the day after, her sweet momma turned 30! September sure is an expensive month for Daniel! ;)
How fun! Right?!!!
Aunt Dawn got some cuddles before the crowd came.
She's showing you "how many" she is! :)
"I'm made for this present stuff!"
I like to think that Misty is wondering where she's going to put everything! ;) Notice my sweet Ridgers playing in the background ;)
Little miss priss was super sleepy by this point.
There's the serious little girl I know and love! :)
I have to say, to be so tired, she did a pretty good job eating cake!
I had to make sure I got someone to take a pic of me at the party... I am "mommy Whitney" after all!!! ;)
Happy birthday sweet Sofia!!! And happy 30th to your awesome mom! I can't wait to spend many more years loving you and watching you grow... and who knows... maybe I'll be doing your engagement photos one day with a certain handsome blonde, curly haired boy! ;)
Love you all!!!
