We celebrated our Remie Rue a couple weeks back with a peach party, a laid-back brunch with family, it was perfect for our tiniest girl! It seems that with each kid our celebrations are getting waaay more low key, because time, but also it really is all about making the day the most special for them. Remerie loves her people she knows best, but is typically super shy, and so keeping it sweet + small was exactly what she would have wanted!
I loved the colors, so feminine, which reminds me so much of her! We worked with one of our favorite shops, Coterie Party, and they sent over the cutest details — lots of balloons (which Remie loved!), greenery, + pops of gold. Everything came together and went so well with her invite (which can be found here), I always keep the invites from the girls parties in their memory boxes + they truly are some of my favorite keepsakes that I will cherish forever.
For food, we did chicken salad, croissants, peaches, + served peach bellinis with peaches on top. My sister-in-law, who has a new shop, Heart of Sugar! – made peach cookies and baked the smash cake, it was so simple + beautiful! Remie was way more into feeding her big sisters her cake than eating it, she truly is the sweetest girl!!! We love you so our Remie girl, and LOVED CELEBRATING YOU!!!!!
The white high chair is the same one that both Waverly + Avalon sat in for their first birthday parties, I remember finding it at a garage sale SEVEN years ago now, it is so special to us!
**If you are in the market for cookies or sweet treats for any type of event, follow my sister-in-law’s bakery, it can be found here! She is local to Virginia Beach but can ship. XO
Oh my goodness, my sweet baby girl is ONE!!! One entire year old. Happy first birthday to our darling + precious Remerie Rue!
So many things I could say about our Remie girl, we all just adore her. From the moment we found out we were expecting, it felt like such a dream and all this time later, it seriously still does. She is truly the greatest surprise of my entire life and the most amazing lesson that some of life’s very best things come from plans we never made.
Remie is as sweet as they come + also sooooo mischievous, she gets into all the things and smiles and waves when you catch her in the act. She is determined, daring, and so strong for such a little thing, she already keeps up with her big sisters and thinks they are hilarious. She loves to cuddle, but only for a few seconds at a time, and pats my back every single time I pick her up (the best!). She always bobs her head up and down, smacks her cute little lips into this pucker that owns me, and loooooves music — she already has the best dance moves! She is not the typical “easy third kid”, she is super hesitant to even look at anyone she doesn’t know well, she doesn’t like toys, hair bows, or not being held — but is so dang cute that you forgive her for all of it. We laugh that she really doesn’t look like any of us 🙂 but her golden hair and skin are one of my favorite things about her, she truly is a beauty inside + out.
I might have shared before, I will never ever forget crying by myself in my car the day Waverly turned one. It was such a rush of emotions, I felt like time was moving so fast, that there was no way to stop it and I just wanted so badly to hang on to her first year longer. Of course this time around is still bittersweet, but I know how much we have to look forward to and all that is to come. I truly just feel so GRATEFUL for these sweet little girls and am so excited to watch them grow together.
Happiest birthday Remerie Rue, we love you sooooooooooo much, life is so much more beautiful with you in it.
Remie Rue is eleven months old, the next time I update she will be ONE YEAR!!!! She is as delicious as ever, look at these itty bitty pigtails, they are just too muuuuuuch + so is she!
A little about Remerie the past month, starting with what a mama’s girl she is! She is the first of my babies to rarely agree to go to anyone else, so I end up holding her A LOT, even through eating and trying to get things done around the house. Truthfully this can be tough, especially because I hate that I sometimes cannot give my attention to all three girls but we do what we can do + make it work! I could not live without this sling (babywearing is forever one of my favorite things!) and am constantly reminding myself that it will not be this way forever and how much I will miss it one day.
Remie loves walks in the stroller, swinging, alllll the attention from her big sisters, and probably most of all, to eat! When she finds something she really likes, she has this little laugh after she takes a couple bites and it is the cutest thing ever. She gives open-mouth kisses lately, says “maaaama”, “da”, and we are convinced she can say Avalon but really just yells at their room when she gets up from her nap to see if her big sisters are in there. She can stand and for now, has shown no interest in walking + I am holding on to that for as long as I can! 🙂
Her personality is showing more + more, she is determined, a little shy, and as sweet as can be. She has started cuddling more lately, the moments she leans in to my shoulder or snuggles on my lap after she takes her bottle are some of my very favorite.
Happy eleven months Remerie Rue, we adore you!
