Jack's first birthday party took place October 18th - the weekend before his birthday - because we were lucky enough to have one very special guest visiting from NYC: his godfather, Basil! We wanted to be able to celebrate with him, so we partied a bit early, which worked out great, because it basically extended his first birthday celebrations to a full week. Win/win!
In keeping with his nursery and baby shower theme, we decided to round out the trifecta and have a whale first birthday theme, too, and it was PERFECT! I was pretty happy with how it turned out. Enjoy!
Happy first birthday, sweet baby boy! I cannot believe we've already celebrated your first year of life, but I'm so very thankful for you, and for all the wonderful friends and family who were able to attend! Next up, your actual birthday post :)
