The First Birthday Party

Sebastian, you love dirt and books. LOVE THEM. You are all boy. If you are outside then you are all smiles and the minute we pick you up to bring you inside you are throwing your head back, arching your back, stiffening your body into full tantrum status.

What better for a first birthday theme then one that involves books, a caterpillar, and being outside in the garden. It just seemed so perfectly “you”.

I had so much fun pulling together all the details for your “The Very Hungry Sebastian” party, knowing very well that you didn’t know the difference, but hoping that one day you could look back here and appreciate it. But I have to say, the real joy was having all the family and friends that drove many miles to be here to celebrate you. WE LOVE YOU SEBASTIAN!

The Very Hungry Sebastian (or The Very Hungry Caterpillar) First Birthday Party:

And what every first birthday is really about…the first cake:

I have to say that I wasn’t surprised that you didn’t really like eating the cake. I love (I mean LOVE) sweets, but when I was pregnant with you, I didn’t like them at all. Your first birthday cake brought you smiles mostly because you liked the way it felt squishing in your hands. You funny boy.

With all his ladies…

And with mom and dad…

Happy Birthday Bash! We love you!
