Birthdays are always special days in our house. We usually only celebrate them as a family, sometimes inviting our parents and grandparents to join us. We have big parties for our kids for their first birthdays and (so far) the first birthday they have once they've started school- this way they can invite their friends to celebrate with them.
Today is a very special day at our house. Our baby boy turns 1! Where has the time gone? My kids are growing up so fast! They definitely don't stay little for long! This past year has been so much fun! It has been a true joy watching the baby grow and as he got older playing with his big brother. The two of them have so much fun together. I love listening to the baby giggle, laugh, and squeal as he plays with his "Bub-bub". (That is what he / we call his big brother. He started calling him that when he was 6 or 7 months old.)
There will be a few more birthday related posts to come. I am making 2 cakes for his birthday party. The one that he will get to eat or smash or play with or whatever it is he will do with his own little cake. The other one will be a sheet cake for his party guests to eat.
Do you do anything special for birthdays in your house? Are certain birthdays celebrated differently than others?
