Scarlett's birthday was a milestone for all of us. We wanted to celebrate her amazing little life, her triumphs and her bright future. I decided we would celebrate with a rainbow theme. Her birthday was the rainbow after nearly a year of rain clouds, and I couldn't resist surrounding us all with vibrant colors.
We started the day with a little photo shoot at the park.
Then, the party began. All the excitement led to an interrupted nap and a pretty grumpy baby. But, well, the party wasn't really for her sake and we all had fun anyway!

|This was her big smile for the afternoon. As for her outfit: it's mommy-made!
|She took solace in whichever grandparent would protect her.
|I also made a fun little cake.
|I used this tutorial for the fruit-flavored layers (basically, it's two cake mixes split into 6 bowls, then each is mixed with fruit and tiny bit of food color.) It was AWESOME!
|You can see that Scarlett was impressed...

Time to start planning the next party!
