but she is getting so big.  So grown.  Turning into the girl and eventually woman she is destined to be.

My heart bursts with love for this first little girl of ours.  It’s truly a delight to watch her grow.

As you can gather, this is a somewhat healthy morning drink.  But this is no ordinary drink, it’s a birthday drink, so I added some marshmallows.

Because, marshmallows. #da

And truth be told, I was 100% inspired by these pancakes that Audrey loved so dearly.

  1. Ombre smoothie and ombre pancakes are so pretty and special with marshmallows. I love chocolate. I’m thinking a light drizzle of chocolate syrup over the marshmallows would add a bit more to these amazing recipes!
