Bennett's First Birthday

I can do nothing but sit. I am so wiped out and run down. It's like I have the flu only my stomach doesn't hurt, except it does a little from the antibiotics ...

Here is B's first birthday in all its glory.

J decorated the backyard

Craft table - had the little ones make sand jars as their party favors

The picnic table J built was a huge hit with the littles

I baked, J baked AND decorated

So many toys, we're going to save a few for later

From us

B did not enjoy his cake


J bought a red balloon for Charlotte

Bennett and Charlotte


Ali is five weeks old now

Too much party

Ready to play after a long nap

  1. What a wonderful first birthday party! I have a little one who is soon to turn one as well. Where did you get that blue, purple, and green wooden toy (with the bead on top) from? I bet my Griffin would flip for something like that!

  3. Adorable party:) (I have that same tank top from Target!) My little man is turning 1 in a couple months and I never thought to lay down a blanket for him to open presents outside:)

  4. Great pictures!! I love the one of him running with balloons tied to his tummy... so cute!! :-)

  5. P.S. I hope you're feeling better. :-)

  6. That looks like the best first birthday party! I agree with Crystal - those photos of Bennett in his nappy with the balloons are pure joy. I love Charlotte's balloon - big sister never far away.

  7. The next best thing to actually being there! Thanks so much for sharing all of these.

  8. Looks like a wonderful party!!!!

    Also, Caden has that wooden activity cube. He actually got it last Christmas and he LOVES it. Hope B does too!!!

    And no, you don't have to stop calling him a baby! I think they're "babies" until two, even though they're toddlers not infants :)

    Caden lost about 1.3 pounds between 9 and 12months. I'm sure you must be anxious and worried but B sounds like such an active little one <3 If he wasn't getting enough nutrients, he wouldn't have the energy for all that movement and development!

  9. LOVE it! Especially love the pic with balloons tied around B. :)

  10. Oh goodness, the "I don't like this cake!" face is priceless.

    B with a balloon bouquet tied around him is adorable!


thank you!
