Jay's First Birthday Party

In our house there is a nonnegotiable rule that each and every birthday is celebrated hard. And despite that fact that Jay won't remember a darn thing about this day, his first birthday was absolutely no exception. And let's be real for a second, first birthdays are just as much for the parents as for the child (#isurvived). And as the leaves are sporting their finest fall colors, the air getting crisper, and the apples are getting sweeter, the theme was almost a no brainer. A fall lumberjack party for my tiny human complete with apples and caramel, roasted marshmallows, and inflatable axes.

Turns our that Jay is quite the party animal. He loved eyeing the silver balloons. He loved eating cake to his heart's content. He loved shredding up wrapping paper. But most of all, I think he loved having all his favorite people with him in the same place, at the same time.

And while a party is fun, the truth is this little kid deserves to be celebrated. He is so sweet and even-tempered. He works hard to learn new things every day. He is resilient and patient. And boy does he fill our lives with joy. Truly, my heart is filled to the very brim.
