I can’t believe that Leyton is already almost 13 months old and that I’m just now getting a chance to post his birthday party recap. There are a few things at this young age that makes Leyton light up every time he sees them: Family, Dogs, Balls, and Balloons. So, we knew we had to have Leyton’s one year old birthday have one of these themes. We went with a balloon first birthday party theme and I think he’s pretty happy we did! There were balloons around for days and even a few weeks later that he really got to enjoy! As you’ll see below Leyton was more interested in the balloons than the cake…

We had balloons EVERYWHERE! Tied to the mailbox, on our front porch swing, on the back yard adirondack chairs and even in the playroom on the ground for all the kids to play with!

I am the most blessed wife to have done this past year with this man, my love, by my side. You never doubted me as a mom and helped me in so many ways I never would have guessed I would have needed you. You are our rock, we love you babe!

We used twine and tiny clothes pins to string up pictures of Leyton by our fireplace in order of how old he was. Made me so nostalgic over the past year!

I could not have gotten this party together or made it through the past year without these two by my side: Mom and Holly, my sister.

Those cupcakes were KILLER, y’all! A local Birmingham woman runs Laverne & Lucy’s Bake Shop out of her home and I fell in love with her cupcakes at another 1 year old birthday party. We had Orange Creamsicle and Vanilla Wedding Cake…so good!
