Beckett is ONE! We celebrated his first birthday with a jungle-themed party with close friends and family!
We wondered how Becks was going to react to his very first taste of sugar and how he’d do with a giant group of people singing happy birthday all at once. Turns out… he LOVED IT! He smashed the cake, clapped his hands and even tried to share some of his beloved sugar treasure with us (it was his first time with that magical substance).
We think a first birthday is the only time it’s socially acceptable to leave your own party to take a bath!
It was so fun celebrating with our family and a few close friends, and watching Becks truly enjoy it! He never gets to see all the people he loves in one place, and instead of being overwhelmed like I thought he might be, he was just so excited (and enamored with all the balloons!)
Mom fail: Staying up until midnight the night before DIYing his balloon arch only to discover I should *never* try to DIY. That thing took HOURS!!! Rookie mistake.
Mom win: remembering to lay a tarp over the rug right before this.
Next year, I think he’ll get ONE balloon and a streamer and we’ll call it a day. But I’m so glad we got the chance to celebrate the year (and the little boy who) changed our life for good. I know I’ll look back on these moments and cherish them forever!
