happy One month Mia



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.

ingredients:
  • 4 tbsp. unsalted butter (room temperature)
  • 2 cups confectioner's sugar
  • 2 tbsp. milk
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt
Beat together until light and fluffy.


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.
