Almost four.

We had a fun 4th birthday party for Iris on Saturday—it was pretty much perfect. Six kids total, beautiful weather, lots of food, one tenacious pinata, some confetti eggs and two dads who spent quite a while chasing the kids around the yard with a hose.

For her birthday cake, I used a recipe from Food & Wine. The cake part was crazy delicious—moist, light and super chocolatey. The frosting, however, tasted like a giant cup of coffee. (I suppose the use of instant coffee had something to do with that...) So at the last minute, I tucked that batch of frosting into a Tupperware container for later grown-up use and quickly made a new batch of chocolate frosting, which was amazing and fast and totally saved the day.

Her actual birthday is this Saturday, but because holiday weekends aren't the easiest time to catch people in town we'll be spending it mostly with our little family. We have no plans beyond eating outside, getting some balloons and probably making one more cake. :)

In shop news, I have a fresh batch of baby clothes to add this week. I started putting some items up last night, but there are several more pieces still to come! This dress in particular is just gorgeous. The details are so sweet and whole dress itself is spotless and ready to wear.
