Traditional First Birthday

My son turned one yesterday. While, I was pretty choked up about the whole thing, I actually was calm the day of the event. We had a few friends and family joining us to celebrate for the second time. To mark the historic occasion, and because I was feeling nostalgic, Granny and I decorated her house with old school balloons, bows, party hats, and confetti.

I have to admit that other than a few Sesame Street items, most of the decorations were items we just re-purposed. We used party hats over baby food jars to weigh down the balloon centerpieces with lines of bows, noise makers, and curled ribbons we had on hand from other parties.

McClain really enjoyed his personal cake that Granny made.

Granny made this bib 29 years ago for me to wear my first birthday.

However, I can’t say he was a huge fan of his party hat.

We had to make sure his best friend Hippity made it to the party.

All in all it was good day to turn 1!

Happy First Birthday.

    • I use a Canon EOS Rebel XSI with the standard lens. And I touch them up in picnik.com. Though this particular set I didn’t really do much to other than crop, and lighten a couple of the cake. So I’m super excited that some of the lighting came out the way it did.

      Thanks so much for the complements.
