For today’s Motherhood Monday post, I’d love to share a few photos of Toby‘s first birthday party…. The party was not only a special occasion for sweet Toby, but also for Alex and me, as first-time parents. It was a life-changing, whirlwind, chaotic, rollercoaster first year…and we survived!
Toby and Leo have been friends for their entire lives. Their birthdays are just one week apart. Whenever I see them together, I imagine them as old men, sitting there together, laughing, making their weird jokes.
We served bagels with cream cheese, black-and-white cookies and (spiked) orange juice for the grown-ups. We made a banana cake, topped with a Statue of Liberty candle. Toby was transfixed by the flame and refused to smile for family photos:)
