Declan's First Birthday

Hey! I'm finally getting around to posting! Whoo hoo! A month later and I finally have a few pictures from Declan's first birthday to show you...

On his actual birthday we had a small family gathering with pizza & cupcakes. It was so fun & heart warming to see his little smile while he opened a few gifts =)

We took a few pictures of him in his crib to capture this awesome moment. Dex is truly our little miracle baby & every minute with him is a blessing.

We ordered these fun balloons from Shop Sweet LuLu and the simple bunting banner is from the Etsy shop Scout and Acadia

These super cute cupcakes came from Sweet and Saucy Shop, here is Southern Ca.

And here is the birthday boy enjoying a cupcake for the first time. He didn't quite know what to do with it, but he loved it!

We threw a big party for Declan a week later & We all had a blast. I wanted to keep the decor as simple as possible ( we can go all out once he gets older ) so we used giant 36" helium filled balloons. ( Also from Shop Sweet LuLu ) We painted canvas boards with Chalkboard paint and wrote some of his favorite things on them.  We also took a couple of his pictures from his actual birthday , blew them up and mounted them on foam board. ( Afterwards we hung one up on our wall )

The balloons took up great space at the tables =) 

I'm bummed we didn't get better shots of all of us, but a lot of you know how it is throwing a party; it's such a busy day! All in All I was so happy & So grateful =) God is so good!
