We celebrated C's first birthday this past weekend. The day was filled with entirely too much prep, loads of baking & cooking, and ended overwhelmed and thankful for all the people who love our sweet C. I was pretty proud of myself for not tearing up the entire day. Probably because I had cake batter coming out of my ears, but mostly because his birthday isn't until later this week so I just keep telling myself that I still had a baby and not a one year old.
I don't plan to throw massive parties like this every year. I'm thinking more like every 5 years & all the in between years being focused on our family and that one child verses making sure I have enough food & what decorations will be the cutest. Just a thought for now. I wanted C's birthday to have some what of a theme, but he has no real interest so I decided to go with a "C" theme. Could you imagine the dud of a party if his name had started with a "Q"?
The night was seriously splendid, and the Lord blessed us with amazing weather. Thank you to all our friends and family who came, and even to those who didn't for loving our little guy.
Don't worry your little self, I'll be posting smashing cake pictures in the next few days because who doesn't want to see a messy, chocolate covered baby face:) Needless to say, he was alllll about some cake. I still can't believe he's turning one. This kid is the best.
