It happened- our little boy turned one year old. How did a year pass by so quickly? Honestly, he’s still a tiny baby in my eyes and not a toddler. I mean, he’s a peanut so maybe that helps a bit. He did, however, make it known that he’s officially a toddler. We have quickly learned that his new favorite hobby is unrolling the toilet paper… How toddler-like, right???
We celebrated his first birthday with our close friends and some family members, nothing too big. His party was Pumpkin themed, which I felt was fitting for an end of October birthday. I also found the perfect birthday shirt on Pinterest and we kind of based the party theme around it. You see…. Jackson’s bedroom is filled with tractors. And not just any tractor. It’s filled with John Deere green tractors. I found him a shirt that not only had pumpkins on it…. but there was a GREEN tractor pulling the pumpkins! Perfect, right? So of course, we had to incorporate the tractors into his party decor. It definitely looks like he wants to follow in his Father’s footsteps when he’s older. It was so cute when his Papa let him choose the new tractor for the farm on the Fastline website!
His smash cake and the cupcakes were pumpkin spice- because what other kind of cake would you have at a pumpkin themed birthday? I found some pumpkin cutouts and taped his 1-11 month pictures on them. He had some orange balloons, tractor balloons, a giant green 1 balloon…. Basically balloons everywhere. The decorations were simple, but so adorable. You can never really go wrong with a balloon delivery SF as part of the birthday celebrations.
He was so busy- I could barely get a “decent” picture. He was on the move! I’m not really sure how he had the energy to move, mister no nap. But you better believe he CRASHED after the party. Between eating his cake and no nap beforehand, he was a sleepy little guy.
It may have been Jackson’s birthday…. but the gift is for you! His birthday shirt came from Zoey’s Attic Personalized Gifts. This WAHM shop was opened in November 2006 by Erin Delanty. She offers many types of gifts from personalized shirts, totes, drinkware, and wall art. Jackson’s shirt is amazing quality- it washed up nicely and didn’t fade or shrink. Most orders ship within 1-3 business days which, in my opinion, is super fast for a personalized item!
