GRAY'S FIRST BIRTHDAY

Hi all! Whew! This past year after welcoming Gray to our family has been busy (hence my lack of posting), busy, busy! But, I've enjoyed almost every minute of it and I wouldn't trade it for anything. I can't believe my tiny, little baby is a whole year old now! It's definitely a bittersweet feeling and I love experiencing all the "firsts" with him. It's so refreshing to see him encounter and learn everything for the very first time. 

We had his birthday party a few weeks ago and I wanted to share the special details of the day because it was definitely a labor of love! I designed the invitations and matching decor (of course!) and my sweet friend Lauren took these beautiful pictures to capture the day. I'm so blessed to have such talented friends! Here's the invitation + party hats + bubbles I designed. 
And here's some shots of the big day! It was in our backyard and I was so worried about the weather but luckily it never rained! We just had to endure Alabama's wonderful humidity. I wanted to do something outdoors and in June I knew it needed to entail water but I still wanted to do something creative other than just having a baby pool for the kids. So, I turned it into an outdoor bubble bath with bubbles everywhere! It turned out pretty cute and I think the kids had a blast! 






















And here's some super sweet pictures of my baby boy before the party enjoying the bubbles! 





Didn't Lauren do a perfect job of capturing the party!? She is a wonderful photographer if you're looking for anyone in the Birmingham area!
