This past September JF turned 3 and Ben turned 4.
JF wanted a Mickey Mouse birthday party but Ben insisted on a Thomas the Train birthday party.
I insisted on having one birthday party.
Because I had a newborn invitations were not made and mailed out; instead I emailed everyone and did things super easy.
Red, yellow, and blue balloons, some pendants, and a red tablecloth.
Definitely festive enough.
Then my sister-in-law and mother-in-law volunteered to make the cakes.
And they went above and beyond.
Oh my gosh, seriously!
An old standard that thrilled my miracle boy.
The best part is that JF's cake was completely safe for him to eat.
They worked on these cakes for hours. Just decorating Mickey took more than an hour!
We are blessed, blessed! by our generous family.
Then, in August our little JP was baptized.
Here he is, meeting his godmother (and her baby bump) for the first time.
So fresh and so clean-clean!
The wonderful Nick and Mia, JP's godparents, are friends of ours from college. They are so fun and we love them a ton, even though they prefer Superman over Batman. (silly, silly, silly)
Don't you just want to say, "Shhhhh, JP. It's okay."
