his first birthday, is it just me or does anyone else think that 2014 really flew by, it was as if time just sped up! Last year I spent weeks planning my boys birthday and rightly so, he'll never have a first birthday again but this years celebrations will be a lot more low key. We will be having a little party of sorts, more of a little tea party really for close family and some friends, hopefully Tyler Lee's little buddies can come along for some cake! This little tea party will take place on the 15th, the day before his actual birthday as I don't think many people would be able to come celebrate with us on a Monday.
Speaking of cake, I decided to get him one made instead of making it myself as I wanted him to have an In the Night Garden one - he is obsessed with the characters, especially Upsy Daisy who he calls out 'day-see' for at multiple times throughout the day, she seems to be his best friend at the moment, so sweet! The cake will be two-tier with a surprise in the middle (I'll be sharing pictures!) and will be decorated with an In the Night Garden theme, the three main characters and a '2' for the birthday boy. I'm probably crazy ordering a two-tier cake for such a small celebration but I don't think a single cake would have justified the design we wanted on it, plus, we can send people home with lots of cake so it's win win! I've also ordered Tyler Lee some cupcakes with the characters faces on, I think he'll really love the novelty of them.

I've picked him up a little outfit to wear on his birthday, the jumper of which I think is perfect for a blogger and photography lovers son! His outfit is quite rocker like I think but I love that and I think it suits his gift of a drum kit quite well! Everything I got him is from Zara, we love their range of boys clothes.
|Cupcake? What cupcake? I haven't eaten any I swear!|
Ultimately all I want is for my boy to have a fantastic 2nd birthday. I want his day to be all about him, letting him do all the things he loves so he can enjoy his day to the full. I'm so emotional at the fact that my baby boy is getting all grown up so quickly, I want to cherish this birthday of his as next year he'll be talking back to me and letting me know all that he wants to do instead of me having to plan it for him!
|Cupcakes make him happy!|
