You hear, you read that the first birthday of a child is really about the parents or The parent obsessing over the birthday theme, the decorations, invitations etc. Since, it was known from the start, that it will only be the three of us celebrating, I wished for something home-made and quiet. I am not saying the same rule will apply for next year but for Zoárd’s first birthday, we were modest.
I have very good feelings about it all. My husband asked his teacher, after giving a presentation to his class mates, if it would be alright if he would go home earlier because of his son’s birthday. So he got home at five which was such a nice treat. We picked up the balloons and as we agreed on it, we made a fruit plate for Zoárd, once we were back from our walk.
In the morning I took a few shots of Zoárd because the natural lighting did wonders. We also did a few fun pictures last weekend. Overall, Pinterest inspired me a lot and I can only encourage everyone to have fun when it comes to celebrating. And if throwing a big themed party with cupcakes still falls in to the fun category for some, I am not against it at all!
The picture on the left was taken at the hospital. And the picture on the right was taken while we were “praying”. Seriously, it is not easy to take a picture of a big baby, who prefers his independence nowadays. My camera’s lens cap did the trick. Wink, wink.
I just remembered, I did give a “real” present to Zoárd this morning.
How do you like to celebrate? Who did you throw the last birthday party to?
