My sweet baby boy, Charles Phillip, has officially turned one on the 4th of July! We had a little gathering with family on Monday night to finish off the long weekend and to celebrate Charlie’s first year. I can’t believe we made it through. LOL. Everyone warned me the first child would be the biggest adjustment of my life but…I disagree. Having a second baby has been the game-changer for us. But, double the work brings double the blessings and for that I’m grateful!!! Charlie has definitely been the bright light in our family and he came during a difficult time after losing my Dad just three weeks prior to his birth. We are beyond blessed to have this sweet soul join our family. We didn’t even know what we were missing until we had him and now I can’t imagine it any other way. Charlie has the most infectious smile and laugh, and I see so many wonderful qualities in my boys that remind me of my Dad daily.
Today I thought I’d share some pictures from Charlie’s 1st Birthday Party because I love to entertain and decorate, and I like to provide anyone with helpful ideas for their own little parties if you’re looking to keep it simple. I didn’t go with a theme this time around; I just kept it bright and colourful for the children. So here it is…Charlie Turns One.
Happy Birthday, Charles! We love you SO much. xoxo
