Judah's First Birthday Party

Judah boy turned a year old on February 27th and we celebrated with a little bear theme this past Saturday. Because, if you didn't know, we are pretty sure Judah is part bear. He goes into this mode we call his "bear mode" where he gets super silly and wants to paw at us and kiss/slobber on us, wrestle and growl and burry his head into our necks and faces. It's pretty much our favorite. Plus his hands and feet are literally like a little bear cub.

We are obsessed with him y'all. We can't help it. Celebrating him this past weekend with our family and friends was just icing on the cake to his first year with us.  I'm just bummed I didn't think to get a big group shot because we had so many awesome friends and family there with us. He and we, are truly so blessed with the best people in our lives.

The weather was perfect that day. We had it at our neighborhood park where all 4 of our kids have basically grown up sliding and running and climbing. He absolutely loves to be outside and he loves to be around people so it was perfect. He was so laid back the whole time, just taking it all in.

We had hot dogs, chips, & tea. Chocolate cupcakes, chocolate covered pretzels, a trail mix bar and a smores favor. I kept it pretty simple and just tried to focus on the little details to make it all special. I found most of the decor on etsy and the rest I pulled from what I have here at home. Basically anything red buffalo check, burlap, metal or wood, I threw in somehow. I think it turned out perfect for our Judah bear and we had so much fun celebrating him.

Please note my favorite part of this family photo....Mia's smeared hot pink lipstick, courtesy of Aunt Nessa and running around on a hot spring day.  Someone described Mia as the most beautiful hot mess they'd ever seen and I'm just not sure there could be a more perfect description for her. The girl is cray. 

Happy First Birthday Judah Bear. You have brought us more love and joy than we could possibly have ever imagined.  You are our last "first" birthday and though it is bittersweet, it is mostly so sweet. You have completed our family perfectly and not one day goes by that we don't thank Jesus for you.
