Happy 1st Birthday Ocean!


Okay hold on...wait a minute...Ocean is 1 years old! Its crazy how time flies, honestly it felt like it  was just yesterday that we took him home from the hospital all small and squishy. Now he has this crazy personality and a don't mess with me attitude. We really thought he was going to be the silent type but boy were we wrong. His stiff arm is so tough that he sometimes hurts me. He's our crazy beast and we love him; which is what I hear Mase say sometimes when Ocean snatches a toy out of his hands. LOL!


I really am sad that this is my last 1st birthday I will be celebrating as Ocean will be the last kid for us. There were moments during the week where I brought up to the Warden that we should have another kid. But than we would look at each other and came back to reality. Two is our gold number!




Now lets talk about the birthday party...planning any kids birthday party can be stressful, but when you do a 1st birthday party you want to make sure whatever you do you include the baby of the hour in it. I have been to many first birthdays that were so elaborate that the baby was sleeping in the corner the entire time. So I always make sure that I plan a birthday party around my kids personality. I knew from experience that he loved going to this carousal (as his older brother and I would go to after schools). Also I knew that he was a wild animal so the Jungle theme was perfect for him. And when I put the two together this was our party. It was a perfect mash up for our friends, family and of course the birthday boy. 

 




Last tip! I have stopped with the crazy expensive birthday cakes, because most of the time its just for pictures and it doesn't even take good. So instead I have been doing a lot of DIY cakes. For this one I bought my favorite chocolate cake from my local bakery and added some jungle animals on top and customized the cake tray with a banana leaf (cause we are in the jungle). It was yummy, fun and inexpensive. Plus everyone thought it was super cute!
