Holly’s Sweet & Sassy 1st Birthday

Holly didn’t have a 1st birthday party :(. This alone nearly drove me to tears a few times, but now looking back, I think we managed to celebrate her in a fun and unique way – just like her.

On her actual birthday, not much happened. I mean, for HER. For our lil family as a whole, tons! We spent an entire day in the emergency room with big sister Melissa, who has mild asthma attacks every once in awhile (usually when she gets a bad cold). She’s fine now btw, so not to worry.

But it figures this would happen on Holly’s birthday – and not just any birthday, the first! I already feel guilty she doesn’t get as much attention as the older ones did on their baby milestones. I try to remind myself that she does have something that neither of them had: not 1 but 2 siblings who adore her.

So on the day after her birthday, we visited this cupcake place called The Flour Shop. We’d originally thought of checking out a gluten-free bakery (because of my husband’s allergy to gluten) about half an hour away, but since everybody (including him) was still fighting a cold, we decided to stick with what we saw just around the corner. And I’m so glad we did! The cupcakes were AMAZING. I inhaled a chocolate one (that’s why you don’t even see a picture), and still dream of it at night. Plus, the decoration just made you want to be there. Dangerously cute

Hey, put a steak in the middle, and that sort of works ;)

Exactly.

Happy birthday too meee!

“Happy birthday too meee! (wearing pajamas cause she was also fighting a cold, so we kept her comfie)

Bday ballcake – approved!

I think she was happy :)

Happy girl

Little side note to say that we just moved to the Dallas area. I thought of writing about it here but it’d be just too long. It deserves a post all on its own. So stay tuned!

Back to Holly’s celebrations – it didn’t stop there! The next day, we also ventured into this awesome lil salon for kids (mainly girls) called Sweet & Sassy. It’s so cute in there, the 3-year-old in me just wanted to squeal with joy. There the birthday girl got her ears pierced, Andrew got a haircut and Melissa got a sparkly hairdo.

He didn't cry at all! Just looked very deep in thought lol

She reminds me of Cindy Lou Who :)

There are so many other pictures, but I’ll save those for my next post, when I’ll describe just how terribly in love I am with the Dallas area (or rather, all its opportunities to spend money – hence the “terribly” :). See you there!
