Age: Virtually one
I like: Balls, my 360° sippy cup, boobs, shouting
I suppose there is an argument to say that first birthday parties are a bit pointless because the guest of honour has no idea it’s their birthday but I feel like being en entire year old is something that needs to be marked with an event. And even if Little O isn’t bothered by the fact that it’s his birthday, Mr O and I deserve a celebration of surviving our first year as parents and me especially of surviving labour.
We decided to invite friends and family around to join us for a dinosaur themed bbq in our garden. We planned this a few months ago on what I am going to refer to as a wing and a prayer that the weather would be nice.
Fortunately the weather was utterly gorgeous, if not bordering on too warm.
The small humans had a whale of a time in the ball pool, everyone ate loads and Little O was showered in gifts. He won’t remember any of it but I will and I’m so glad we did it.
I made the cake myself.
Mr O worked very hard on the garden in preparation.
There were dinosaurs on everything.
The ball pool was a huge hit.
Not sure Little CMC wanted to share his sippy cup…
