I was a little obsessed with the cake being perfect. I tried 3 different white cake recipes before landing on one. The winner was the Whiteout Cake from the Baked cookbook. Making layer cakes is a lot of work! It took my mom and I an entire day to do it and some cupcakes. Why did it take so long? Honestly I don't know. We aren't practiced with it I guess!
Tomorrow will be 1 year exactly. I can't believe it. I have been reminiscing this past week on what I was doing 1 year ago. Emma was 7 days late and I was irrationally impatient about that fact. I felt like she was never going to come. Everyone kept reminding me that that wasn't physically possible, but it didn't help at the time.
1 year! We love our bird. More pictures to come from her actual birthday tomorrow.
