Okay so Jake turned 1 in November and I’m just now writing about it, so what? He’s still 1. And he’s wonderful.
I had wanted to do an airplane theme for his baby shower, but that didn’t work out so I did it for his first birthday. It turned out great and I’m so glad that it was for his birthday and not the shower. I made all the decorations except for some dangly whirly 1s. I spend a crap ton of nights cutting out airplanes and clouds. I strung some up so they dangled. Some I just slapped on walls. All of them were made with love. Lily made Jake a special birthday onesie and a sign.
Oh of course I made all the food too and that was awesome. I made him an angle food cake with whipped cream. I also made meringue cookies that I pipped to look sort of like clouds. I tried to keep to the airplane and cloud theme. I also made some rice crispy treats, because yum.
It was funny when I trued to give him some cake. He really doesn’t like foods that aren’t pureed except his Mum Mums so when I put the cake on his tray he ignored it. I took a piece and offered it to him and he did what he always does when he’s not interested in something. He squinched his eyes closed and turned his head to the side. Silly boy. He did eat a tiny bite or two of ice cream, but not much.
