Happy Birthday!
Amazingly it has already been an entire years since Vera June was born. I must confess it has been one of the best years of my life. She is such a cutie. I am so thankful there will be many more to come... -Daddy

Today was truly special. Vera June, Eldon and I started it off by going to Music Together. Well it really started after we made it out of our very icy driveway. 20 minutes of spinning tires and adding layers and layers of rock salt. Larry had put down quite a bit for us, but the ice was thick this morning. There was a victorious vibe going on in the car when we cruised out of there. Eldon gave me a high five. After E went to school Vera June and I went to pick up her birthday cake at Cakes for Occasions. A yummy chocolate cake with butter cream and pretty girlie cake decor. When we left we couldn't help but notice the tutus in the window of Chocolate Kisses a children boutique. I need to tell you that V has gotten the hang of dressing herself up by emptying the laundry basket and draping herself while we say complimentary things like "those undies look so beautiful on your head". I was compelled to let her express herself for her 1st birthday photo session with this tutu and pearls. I promise I am not pushing the fashionista in her. It is so real! We had a fun birthday party with family afterward. She received some more really cute clothes... Oilily, Tea, and of course some of the must haves from Target too. Cake time was hysterical. I will get back with a brief little word about that and a few pictures too. It is a fun day for baby but a very emotional day for mommy. Where did this year go? I'm glad my family kept me laughing, and of course the cake helped too. -momma

I love these pictures.
I love what she's wearing and the brightness of the photos... white door, wood floor.
Great staging!
