I cannot believe how fast one year went by!
First year of parenthood was full of many new discoveries, and lots of fun.
It’s a weird feeling-It’s so sad to see my little baby grow but I’m happy and thankful at the same time. She is walking, starting to understand words, and showing all kinds of personality (lots of dancing and babbling) !
Though I do lots of 1st birthdays for my clients, I think I finally understand why 1st birthdays are so special.
This is the first time we get to get together and celebrate the baby’s birth.
When the baby is born, it’s super busy, let alone we are constantly exhausted, so it’s really no time to put together a party. 1st birthdays are a great time as we are starting to get a hang of it.
…And it’s a great excuse to go overboard, haha.
So last Saturday, with the help of amazing and talented friends and family, we had a joint Peter Rabbit themed birthday party for Mae and friend, Luca who is only 6 days older than Mae.
Joint birthdays are great.. we can share the work, and double the fun! I really enjoyed working with Luca’s parents along with other close friends (named below under credits), and the party was a huge success!
Happy Birthday Mae & Luca!
