milestones...

last weekend our little moo turned one...just a very small celebration with family, but we had to have a cake, created to celebrate her love of "five little ducks"...she happily quacks along every night at bathtime!


my sister outdid herself with these gorgeous piggy cupcakes...
(from the latest Donna Hay kids issue)



and lovely bug cupcakes too!
(this time from The Australian Women's Weekly birthday cake book)



and this is the birthday cake ballerina who always makes an appearance...


i never expected to have such a sense of a milestone...but i do...and it is...we are blessed to be surrounded by family and friends, near and far, who have provided the most amazing support to our little family...
this journey is filled with joy and great beauty, perfect moments and sometimes not so perfect moments...so i want to say thank you to all of you out there for sharing your moments...there have been times when it has really helped...
the comfort of strangers amazes me still...

and on the subject of milestones...



am super excited about this gift given to little moo...her first hello kitty moment...a gorgeous watering pot so that she can help in the garden...

Congratulations on your baby's first birthday! My little one turns one in a month and I found your cake pictures very inspiring.
