I can't believe it's already been a whole month. Time really does fly! She is already growing too fast for me. I haven't weighed her in two weeks, but she's definitely heavier. I'm happy she has all that hair to hold pretty bows.
So today we had a little family get together to celebrate Mia's first month. It's sort of a chinese tradition, plus everyone wanted to meet her. It was really nice to visit with everyone. My dad cooked some really awesome food and I made the cupcakes.
I used a box mix, but I made my own frosting. I usually have a hard time with frostings and icings, but this recipe was super easy and really yummy.
- 4 tbsp. unsalted butter (room temperature)
- 2 cups confectioner's sugar
- 2 tbsp. milk
- 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
- pinch of salt
It was Jackson's first time to lick the beaters, but he handled it like a pro! You should have seen him go after those cupcakes.
