Prepare for the onslaught of birthday party pictures from yesterday! It was an absolutely wonderful day of friends, family, and yummy food. Thank you to everyone who came and made C's day so special!
Smash cake time!
I kept hearing about how babies don't really go after their cake on their 1st birthday and mostly play with it. Obviously, these people had never seen my child eat. He doesn't joke around.
Fortunately, we had made another, non-smashed cake for the adults to enjoy. It took my sister and I about six hours to bake and decorate (I really should have bought more than one set of baking pans!), but we were beaming with pride when it was done!
C even loved opening presents! He did so well despite missing his afternoon nap. *whew*
This birthday stuff is hard! Needless to say, after cake and presents, C crashed and took a 2 hour nap. The hysterical part was that when he woke up he had a renewed surprise and excitement over his toys and spent hours crawling around the living room playing with them.
My birthday wish for you, my little boy, is happiness. May you always see the beauty in life and continue to bring joy to everyone you meet. As you get older, may the world never dampen your high spirit and huge smile. You are so special to me, Charlie. There are no words to express how blessed I feel to have you in my life. <3
I love the theme! I almost did that for Kendall's 3rd party. Seriously, that cake is AMAZING. Wow. I loved him digging into it. So.darn.cute. Happy birthday, Charlie!ReplyDelete
Thank you!! It was such a fun theme to decorate for. :-D He really did go after that cake - I was sure he'd eat the whole thing if I didn't take it away!ReplyDelete
That cake is AMAZING! So impressed! Looks like a lot of fun!ReplyDelete

Happy Birthday Charlie!! I hope you had a great day and got lots of great presents! MommaM, the cake is amazing and it looks like everyone had a great time!ReplyDelete
Thank you, ladies! It was so much fun to make. If you've never played with marshmallow fondant, I highly recommend it. It was deceptively easy. :-DReplyDelete
I am extremely late on this, but I just wanted to say happy birthday to Charlie! What a huge milestone for your whole family.ReplyDelete
You did an incredible job on the cake and decorations. I love Very Hungry Caterpillar, and you really made the theme come to life. Congrats!
Wow! He had a blast with the cake! I'm a little jealous-my little girl was too busy being traumatized by everyone singing to her to even consider eating her cake. It looks like you guys had a wonderful party!ReplyDelete
I was concerned how he'd do with that number of people, but he was memorized by the cake! He'll do anything for food. Oy!Delete
I LOVE those cake pictures! Adorable. :) Great party and the cake your sister made is amazing. Such talent.ReplyDelete
Thank you!! That cake was quite the labor of love, but we got it done! HahaDelete
