The lovely Abigail turned 1 last Friday and since she is a ladybug and had a ladybug party…there was only one thing to make for her: a ladybug dress…and tutu…and matching tank top…and bow! This is a picture of the creation process before it got ugly! I am stitching the ladybug spots in place.
Here is my model and muse making sure the tutu will fit Abigail.
Here is Eliana waiting for Jimmy to cut her pelo! Her last cut was in December!
Here is the Time Freezer Domestic Goddess Kim! She is joyfully frosting one of her homemade cakes for Abi’s big day.
While Abigail patiently waits for her Mama to finish. Abigail is a Mama’s girl! And she also likes to dress-up. Eliana and Abigail have a lot in common!
Here is the finished chocolate ladybug cake and the homemade piñata full of M&Ms and Snickers!
This cake was my fave. It was a carrot cake with cream cheese icing. Fortunately we got sent home with cake, unfortunately Eliana and I had to split it.
Here is the proud Mama & Baby. Abi’s birthday dress was also made by Kim! It isn’t fair that Kim can freeze time!
Eliana and Abigail talk spots.
Time for dress-up! Tio Edson in the back figuring out how to hang the piñata…
Here is Cousin Edson and Eli in the pool. Well actually Edson is signing ‘water’ while Eli gives someone a very interesting look…
Here is Abi in her tutu and tank while Eli inspects the fit.
Someone get this babybug some aphids!
This moment is why I sew!
