This past week was very emotional for me. I think the hardest part was actually forming the words “happy birthday” to say to my sweet baby boy. It just doesn’t seem possible – and yet, I’m so excited to see him continue to grow. Mom emotions are confusing.
I wanted to keep things very simple, so to make things easier, we just catered Jimmy John’s. (Which is the first thing I ate after giving birth.) We also chose an ocean theme, and just had a simple chocolate smash cake with blue ombré icing (to resemble waves) and matching cupcakes.
We decided to do something a little different as far as the gifts went. We requested for everyone to bring a book, I wasn’t sure how it would turn out, but I’m so glad we did it. Hayden ended up with so many books, and they will last for years to come.
