I enjoyed, so much, planning Jack’s party and finding him just the right presents. I am so happy I get to make special days like this for my children. My mom and dad made sure our birthdays and holidays were a big deal. It was an excitement that was pure and happy just because they could be.
We celebrated early on April 7 at my mom’s with our family and a few friends. The little house was packed with some of my favorite people on earth.
We celebrated again on his actual birthday with balloons, a lot more presents and just mama, papa and baby (or toddler now I suppose.) He was not into smashing his first cake so I made him a doughnut pyramid instead. Turns out it was getting late at night and I opted for an easy bedtime instead of sugar-spike time, so his doughnuts sat on the counter untouched.
These first photos are his birthday at the farm:
Then we celebrated at home:
