Jolie’s First Birthday: The Party

Jolie turns 1 on Friday!

We celebrated her birthday a few weeks early so my parents could be with us. If you missed the decorations post, you can find it here.

I’m pretty sure this was Jolie’s favorite day ever. She is a social butterfly so she was very excited that everyone came to see her! IMG_7411






We played with this parachute. I’m not sure what we were thinking, it was a little chaotic with so many little people and a big parachute, but Jolie loved it.


We had a DIY ball pit that everyone loved! Even some adults (who think they are still kids) got in after the little ones.


I guess Jolie is somewhat like her mama! She climbed into her high chair to take break from the party. She only needed a minute to recharge, haha.

We opened presents. By we I mean Jolie and I watched while a tornado of kids ripped all of the tissue paper out and showed us what . 😉


Caleb got Jolie these sparkly pink shoes!


Autie Em gave Jolie this amazing Baby Grand Piano from Hape Toys! She let Ellie join her for a duet.
