Ashlyn's birthday party was Friday night.

We decided to do a costume theme since it's so close to Halloween.

How cool are these soda covers? Party City has them!
Branden and I had planned on being Alice and the Mad Hatter but I couldn't find a good Alice costume and then we decided to make the whole family characters from Alice. Since it was Ashlyn's birthday she got to be Alice instead of me.

My friend Alyssa made us the cutest Alice and Queen of heart apron's for our costumes. I figured the apron would be cute for dress up too. photo 10434315_10205008794120773_1471421843384362580_n_zpsefc7d0f8.jpg

Ace and Everly were Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum and we just made up their costumes ourselves. When I saw Ace dressed up I almost died over how cute it turned out.
Bran bought his costume online and he looked awesome. 
Ok so back to her party. We had some friends and family come over to celebrate and everyone dressed up in such awesome costumes. My friend Christel was Anna from Frozen and Ace called her Anna the entire night, so cute!

We got Ashlyn a little cupcake for her smash cake and she was not into it. She was so tired by that point though so I think that was probably why.

Overall her party was fun and I really loved all the costumes. I have a feeling she is going to have a lot of Halloween theme parties.

You are 1 year old today.

I still can not believe one year ago we were in California watching you come into this world. I got to cut your umbilical cord and see your cute chubby face for the first time.

There are no words to describe how incredible you are to us. 
You are such a sweet, loving baby and I love that about you.

As my friend Andreina says, you are an old soul. You are an observer and do things at your own pace. 
You can walk to us from the couch and "talk" but mostly your words are a bunch of gibberish. You will mimic some things we say like ugh oh, mama, bop and shhh. 
You can sign all done, more and milk but you rarely do any signs. You just don't care to do them.

You also can also take about 10 steps and getting more and more steady but you prefer crawling. 
You are very clingy and do not like when Mommy walks away from you. You love to be rocked before going to sleep, which I love too. It's probably my favorite time to just sit and be with you. 
Everyone loves you and you are just the cutest little thing. We can't wait to see what your next year brings!!
