Phew! We’re here. Jack’s first birthday.
I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t super emotional this month in anticipation of the big O-N-E. We’ve had a quite the year, and I’ve spent the last 25 days reflecting on how far we’ve come with Jack’s health. Coincidentally, September is Children’s Cancer Awareness month which has brought an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for our amazing team of doctors and nurses, not to mention our massive support system. Although Jack still has his tumor, we’ve received good reports that his body is killing the mass on it’s own. We are blessed to have a thriving energetic birthday boy. Sometimes I wonder how it’s only been one year.
Our family has been on the fast track this month with birthdays (still recovering from the surprise party that was Nick’s 30th), weddings, work trips, and well – life. I wanted to make sure Jack was well celebrated, so I went ham on Etsy grabbing everything from oversized balloons to colorful birthday plates. Lara from Paper House Pinatas saved the day by creating amazing letter piñatas which made for a fun centerpiece for our table.
I’m so happy we were able to pull together a festive afternoon to celebrate our favorite toddler! I hope you enjoy the pictures :), they’re definitely ones I’ll treasure forever.
