Hey world! I'm alive! And live in a new home! And already hosted a party! Yes, all of those !!!s were necessary. It has been one crazy week - but who am I kidding? Our life has been crazy since the beginning of February. But we're finally at the finish line. We're in our new home and hosting T's first birthday party was honestly a good way to kick us into unpacking mode and get a lot done in a few days. Now that all the big things are in the house, we can take our time getting organized and decorating- which is the fun part!
But back to T's party. It was such a special, low-key afternoon with just our immediate family and I loved it. I totally forgot to take a picture of the food spread, but it wasn't anything too crazy ;) The usual party type of food, including my crack dip. Everyone got to see the new house and then spoil our little guy for his first birthday (which by the way, isn't officially until this Friday! He's still my baby!!) He acted shy at first with that many people around but quickly warmed up and enjoyed opening all his gifts and ripping into the paper.
Plus, he got his first taste of something really sweet and he definitely enjoyed himself. I'm not sure how much of it he actually got into his mouth but he certainly enjoyed what he was tasting. Sidenote- I am still trying to get all the cake out of each crevice of his highchair.
Jared and I both felt so sentimental after his party. We looked through countless photos and videos from the past 12 months and truly marveled over the fact that our little boy is turning one. People always tell you how fast it goes, but I seriously can't get over it. We love seeing his personality blossom and we love watching him learn things every day. I might not always love the whining or the teething, but T is so SO worth every struggle and every stinky diaper ;)
