Alice is One!

Alice had her first birthday in August! I can’t believe it’s been a year already and I don’t have a tiny baby any more. But I have to admit, I much prefer having a one-year old over having a newborn. Sleep is a wonderful thing, and so is watching Alice pick up new skills by the hour. She’s amazing!

My birthday gift to her was this super cute elephant jumper and amigurumi elephant. I grew up with the Ed Emberly drawing books, so I can’t get enough of this elephant fabric. Isn’t it adorable?! I want the rest of the fabric collection! The elephant amigurumi pattern is from the Tiny Yarn Animals book.

The dress is reversible! The pattern is the Jump-N dress from Olive Ann Designs. The dress is a bit too big on her now, but it should fit some time in the next year.

We had a quiet birthday with just the three of us. I promise I’ll throw big, fun parties when Alice gets a bit older. But this time, we just had a picnic in the park and Alice got to eat her first processed sugar. I made homemade funfetti cupcakes and she loved them (of course).

Cheers!

Update with a photo of Alice wearing the elephant dress. It finally fits her now that she is 20 months old. :-)
