Today my little baby turns one year old! I honestly can't believe how fast time has flown by. I know that everyone with children says that, but it's hard to fully comprehend just how fast it feels until you experience it for yourself.
Oh and we have come such a long way from those first few days at home with a new baby. Wow that was hard! I am so happy to have this first year under my belt. Zac is like my little buddy now - we have so much fun together.
So anyway, last weekend we had the whole family over to celebrate Zac's first birthday. I made him a little crown to wear, and tied up some red balloons.
We ended up having 27 people in our apartment! Too many for a sit-down meal, so I bought tons of cheeses from the market fromagerie and set up some oversized charcuterie platters. I know, I know, not very typical for a baby's birthday party, but he's only one so he doesn't care! Besides this boy is already quite the foodie, so I'm sure he approved ;)
And of course, these was a mini double-decker smash-cake. My mom and I made it together, which was nice. We decided to go with carrot cake and cream cheese icing... 'cause it's kind of healthier... I guess!
I thought Zac would shove his entire face right in it, but he was more reserved than expected. I think because he was totally weirded out by having 27 people staring at him and cheering every time he took a bite! Still, he managed to get icing in nearly every crevice of his body!
It was a great first birthday!
Happy birthday little guy!
