The weekend JJ turned one…

15 03 2013

As you may have gathered, my little boy has turned one.

On Saturday past we had a little party for JJ.

We chose a theme of Turtles and began dressing the house accordingly.

Wifey cooked up an awesome “1” cake as well as adult and baby friendly cupcakes.

I then created an army of icing turtles to go on all the cupcakes and the main cake itself.

We had turtle invites, a turtle cake stand, turtle balloons, turtle party bags – you get the idea.

The  Mums, Dads and their babies from our original NCT group all came along.

JJ had a great time with his baby buddies.

It was amazing to see the other kids and how much they had grown too.

It’s easy to lose track of your own when you see him every day.

On the Sunday (his actual birthday), I took JJ for his weekly swimming session.

We then opened up Wifey’s Mother’s Day / going back to work presents.

This was followed up by a mammoth JJ present opening and play session.

There was also some Facetime with the Grandparents.

Then all the cards were opened which now adorn the house.

Finally we took him to a soft play area in Harpenden so he could watch all the kids run around.

Thank you everyone for all your birthday wishes, cards, presents and visits.

It made the whole weekend feel incredibly special.

His birthday roadshow kicks off this weekend when he goes to visit Nanny, Granddad, Auntie Debs, Uncle Nat and cousins Hattie and Amelia.

Can’t wait!

Thanks! And they were really tasty too – had a Nutella centre which was to die for.

Lovely happy photos. He really loves that train set. 🙂

Thanks! I think he loves destroying the train set more than playing with it as the moment. But perhaps destroying it is playing with it?!
