First Birthday Party

As we planned for the girls 1st birthday it was a celebration of their first year- not so much the celebration of life that Colby's birthday had been.  Instead of focusing on their milestones like I had with Colby (his timeline included things like "first day off the ventilator",  "blood transfusion", and "head ultrasound all clear!") I instead focused on the cutesy details like personalized purple and pink owl onesies, tutus, and matching hair bows.  

We had a big party, but it was Memorial Day weekend so a lot of people weren't around.  The girls still had a blast, so it was still fun.

The invite-- from a seller on Etsy.

Shirts-- they were white onesies.  
Zoe had a purple owl, pink wings, and purple writing.
Syd had a pink owl, purple wings, and pink writing.

Zoe had a dark purple/light purple combo
Syd had a dark pink/light pink combo

All in all the party was a success -- the girls had fun, Colby had fun, we had fun.  But I only took a few pictures-- woops.  :)

All the "stuff"

I loved the owls :)

Pinterest inspired-- the Pinterest one is a million times better

Late afternoon so we only needed snacks
