Ezra turned one on the 28th of December. We celebrated with Grandma and Grandpa Henninger, Uncle Mark and Aunt Sara, and friends Renae, Jason, and Simon. I felt sentimental and relieved, as well as an anticipation of what is yet to come. I felt the same way around Asher’s 1st birthday. Ezra enjoyed the snacks of cheerios and sweet potato puffs as well as his guests and presents. He wasn’t so much into everyone singing to him nor the carrot cupcakes with cream cheese frosting. Oh, well. He was still such a delight and we all love this little guy so much. It was a sweet, simple party.
p.s. i made the birthday garland hanging up. thank you, courtney for your help. i followed the directions in one of my favorite creative parenting books, the creative family by amanda blake soule.
