The Cutest Outfits for Baby's First Birthday
Baby’s First Birthday is, admittedly, a pretty big deal for parents. For your baby? Meh. They don’t understand the concept of presents — or even cake, for that matter — so the day could surely pass with nary a tear shed.
Rather it’s for the you, you exhausted parent! It’s to celebrate the momentous achievement of making it through the tumultuous first year. To mourn the passing of that same sweet, milestone-ridden year. To watch your child smash cake into his or her face, and to capture it all on camera. (So that you can have photos to smile and weep over as your nest empties. Why else?)
Speaking of photos, many parents look for special photo-opp-worthy clothes for those classic First Birthday photos. (Also known as a Cake Smashing Outfit.) And in that vein, I put together a list of adorable outfits fit for a birthday baby:
