fave day of this entire month~ our youngest daughter’s birthday

We have two daughters and they are both still very young~~but boy oh boy are they growing up fast. Party planning/photography are a couple of my hobbies, so even with the craziest month ever (our entire fam was in town for thanksgiving and daughter’s bday)~~ it was kind of fun to plan. I decided to do a diy milk and cookies bday party in honor of our little cookie. The reason youngest daughter has the nickname little cookie is because her aunt started calling “cookie” that when she was about 8 months old because when she said that word she would giggle. Ironically, as she was able to eat toddler food which includes all the goodies, ahem sweets we noticed her very very fave sweet treat was cookies. NOt just any cookie, chocolate chip cookies to be exact.  To celebrate her second year of life in this world , we decided what better way than to celebrate than with her very faves?! Milk and cookies, and a lot of jumping around.
