My baby turned ONE last week. I really can't believe it. How did this happen so fast?
With the crazy schedules we are on and just trying to get through each day, his birthday totally snuck up on me. I wasn't able to throw a big party, but we did have a fun evening with our family to celebrate.
1st Birthday stats. I wish these were popular when my other kids turned 1. I reused my chalkboard from THIS post.
1st year picture garland.
Minutes before the party started, I handed my sister a stack of photos, paper, and some ribbon. I asked her to come up with something, anything, before people arrived. I love what she did. She found some upholstery tacks and tacked the pictures to the ribbon after matting them with the paper.
I made a simple cake that matched the fabric for his "birthday outfit."
My favorite part of the 1st birthday is the Cake Smash. Since Jefferson is my last, I wanted to get super cheesy with it and made him a cake smash outfit. My husband was a good sport, despite a few comments about how it looked more like a baby Chip and Dales outfit. Ha, he may have been right!
We were all hoping for a repeat of my daughter Kate, who ate her whole cake and made quite a mess.
Unfortunately, he got distracted by those darn polka dots and wasn't interested in the cake.
Eventually, he got tired of all the pressure and told us what he thought of the cake smash.
I'm just glad he's healthy, happy, mine and my last.
Happy Birthday Jefferson!
