Miss Lavinia turns One

Lavinia's birthday was this past Sunday and we had a day of sweet celebrations. Both sets of grandparents, plus one great-grandmother and an aunt, were able to be with her on her special day. After church, we took a picnic to a nearby park. Some teddy bears of all sizes came along with us.

We had chicken salad on croissants, strawberries and blueberries, crudités and dip, corn salad, and chevré bites. Also, your choice of sparkling white grape juice or pink lemonade!



The skies threatened but the rain held off. After eating, the kids played at the swings with their Grandpa and Grandad.


Back at Grandma and Grandpa's house, Lavinia opened gifts with the help of Daddy and Edmund.

Her favorite gift from Mommy and Daddy was a little baby doll. In the past few months especially, she has been so fascinated by other babies and has loved playing with baby dolls whenever she gets the chance. Now she has one of her very own. The baby's name is Violet.

  1. Sounds like you had a lovely day! What a wonderful way to celebrate Lavinia's first birthday -- it's hard to believe it's already been a year. She is too precious for words (and you look gorgeous, by the way! :-)


  2. Happy Birthday to your little one :) m.

  3. Happy birthday, pretty Lavinia! Is that a Corolle doll you received?! My little Bea has one too, and it's her very favorite. Just the right size for little arms. (And fun to make clothes for!)

    1. Yes, it is a Corolle! It is a lovely little doll. You are right, I can't wait to make her a few little doll outfits! :)
