Well, it happened. Sweet little Charlotte turned one year old! I feel like I was JUST taking her six month portraits, and now she’s all old. Even the difference from her 9-month portrait session to now was amazing to me. I was so excited to get to be at her first birthday party. As I would expect from Rachel, the party was adorable. A yellow theme- which completely overcame the chilly, gray day. Each detail was just right, not over the top. I would call the party a success!I learned some new things about my little Waters family at this party. 1- there were 4 generations of Rachel’s family at the party 2- Rachel is one of SIX children. I had to apologize to my two children for losing my temper only moments ago. I imagine with six, I would just have to tattoo “I’m sorry” on my forehead. I don’t know how Rachel’s mom did it. But, based on Rachel and the other siblings I met at the party, she did it really well. This is Rachel’s grandmother Maw-Maw playing with Charlotte. And this is Rachel’s sister. She and Charlotte were too cute together.It’s a wonder any of us turn out normal at all. Look at Charlotte’s view as she eats her cake. I have never seen a one-year-old dive into their birthday cake as quickly. This girl knew what she wanted!
