Noah's First Birthday Party

Noah's first birthday party was such a success.  We had many people stop by and join us for some really yummy burgers and cupcakes.  It was nice that everyone could join us to celebrate our little Bear.

We had a great set up with food on the deck and the party was downstairs under our big shaded tree.  The weather could not have been any better.  Thankfully the rain stopped in the morning and we ended up with a beautiful, not too hot day. Of course I forgot to take a picture of the finished table with all the chaos but the party planning was a success since I ended up not forgetting anything.

Noah was such a good baby the whole day.  With the triathlon in the morning and the running around in between naps were a little shorter but he handled it great and loved being around so many people.  He does however need to learn some manners when it comes to playing with other babies.  He has no regard for anyone near his size and uses everyone and everything as a climbing device.  Obviously he doesn't know better but it's pretty funny (and a little nerve-wrecking) to watch him all over other kids.

We did the usual Happy Birthday song and the cake smash.  Noah was a little leery at first but warmed up quite nicely and finished with frosting all over his face and hair. I ended up making a healthy cake, with normal store bought frosting. What I really should have done though is made healthy frosting and a normal cake because he pretty much just ate the frosting and skipped the cake all together.  I mean, the frosting is a lot more fun anyway.
Lessons for baby number two!

We couldn't be happier to start Noah's second year.  We're excited to see how he grows and learns and watching him turn into a little boy.  Personally I'm excited to hear some of "momma" and "I love you"s and get some good hugs and kisses.  Here is to the next year Baby Bear Noah!

  1. Cute little boy! We are getting ready to celebrate our little girl's 2nd birthday in July. You have an amazing year ahead of you - so much more fun than the first. Ours is already talking in full sentences! Life also gets a little easier in this next year - a bit more time for "making"!
