Our baby boy is actually one. It is so hard to believe. I wasn't sure I was going to have much of a party for Parker's first birthday. Well we can all see how that turned out. Instead I think his party ended up being probably the best first birthday party I put together. Once I saw all the cute things with mustaches the ball got rolling. One of my loves is decorating and making things match and coordinate. I had such a good time putting this party together. I tried staying on task and not get too carried away. Mitch was there to try to keep me grounded. (he has his work cut of for him, he learned that a long time ago).
We were lucky enough to have lots of family and friends to come and celebrate with us. Parker had a great time and even wore a mustache for a while. He wasn't a huge fan of it to start but he left it on for a good 30 minutes. The older kids thought it was pretty fun picking out mustaches even though they weren't on for long either. They ended being used to decorate the back of the house. That was where they were stuck on when they were done with them.
The weather was beautiful, they got lots of fun play time out in the backyard.
Parker decided to test his cake out with just his mouth to start. Once he realized how good it was then he dug in with his hands as well. I enjoy so much watching the kids play with cousins and friends and just enjoy life without a care in the world. I learn so much from them everyday and today was no exception.
Happy Birthday to our sweet boy we love you more than you will ever know.
