Laney in ONEderland | First Birthday Party

Our baby, Delaney Jane, turned one this month! We hosted a beautiful birthday party for our family to celebrate to occasion! Laney's big sister, Piper, had been watching Alice in Wonderland almost on repeat in the weeks leading up to Laney turning one. That was the inspiration for the theme "Laney in ONEderland".

Since we were hosting the party at our home, we invited Delaney's grandparents, aunts and uncles to celebrate with us. We kept the menu really simple for the gathering. We made ravioli and meatballs with a side salad and cupcakes for dessert! My nana made the cutest and most delicious mini cheesecakes as a special treat, as well!

Laney's smash cake was strawberry flavored and while she really enjoyed smashing it with her hands, I'm not sure how much she liked the taste of it, as you can tell from this photo!

Here are a few other pictures from the evening!

We had a wonderful time celebrating Laney's first birthday! She is such a blessing to our family and others. I can't believe it's already been one year since we welcomed her into our lives. Her arrival was covered in prayer by everyone who loves us. In the days surrounding her birth, we experienced a deep sense of peace that can only be described as the very near presence of God. Her birthday was celebrated as a reminder of God's faithfulness, goodness, and love! 

Delaney is our double rainbow baby after two consecutive losses. Praise be to God, our sweet Laney is one! We thank Him for her each and every day!
