Brown Bear Brown Bear Birthday Party! Yonatan Turned 1!!!

Can you believe that this little guy is one?

How fast the year went! Honestly, time really is flying. I was thinking yesterday how the first few months were just kind of a fog/blur. I think it was just because I was exhausted and a new mom. But I know someone who just had her 6th baby and she is like that right now. So maybe it isn't the new mom thing. It has been such a joy to watch my little boy go from newborn and infant stage to toddler stage. I am so blessed and lucky to be his mama!

We had his birthday party on the Saturday after his birthday. But I did take his 12 month picture (above) on his birthday as well as this from Steak N Shake. Thought this outfit was very fitting because of the balloon for him to wear on his birthday. We went to Steak N Shake with his Grandma :)

So, on January 30th we had his party at the church. I decided that the theme was going to be Brown Bear Brown Bear What Do You See? by Eric Carle & Bill Martin Jr. I think it turned out great. The pictures are in no particular order and there are many. Let me know your favorite! Yonatan really liked his party. Not a lot of people showed up for his party but at least some did.  There was an out of town conference that had been rescheduled from the previous week and a few families that were going to come were already signed up to attend the conference.  Anyways, we had tons of food left over! Next time, I won't plan on how many people actually said they were going to come. I'll go at least 10 less. But I guess better safe to have more than not enough! 

This banner took a couple hours to do... I could have got it done
sooner but Yonatan was awake most of the time that I did it.

Why you interrupting my play time Mama?

Pasta Pickups while everyone else eats too.

So glad that Travis' dad came. Yonatan was happy to see Grandpa.

After we sang happy birthday he started to poke his fingers through the cake.
He liked it but not as much as I thought he would.

Daddy had to help out since Yonatan didn't want to get messy or grab any cake for himself.

This is my favorite photo :) What is yours?

Abby is playing with the Heads & Tails game from the Activity table.

One of the photo props being used. I had a pack of photo props
that a lot of us used but didn't get too many pictures with my camera.

Happy Birthday To You!

I will post soon about his 1 year doctor appointment and stats given there. :) My boy is growing up. Fast.

Have a happy nite,

So cute 1st birthday party!! It reminds me of the 1st birthday of my daughter. We had organized their birthday at venues in NYC. It was such a wonderful day of our life and our little girl also enjoyed a lot.
