A few days late….

I don’t post a ton of personal things on this blog. But since this is such a huge milestone in my family’s life, I thought I’d share with my blog readers. A bit more than a year ago, my sweet baby boy came into this world. We have come so far.

I like to joke that I went through hell to get my piece of heaven here on Earth. Weston has won every part of me over, and every day I am amazed at how much bigger my heart can swell without exploding. He is my first born, my ball of delight…my Roo. My wish to him is: May every year be as full of reasons to stare agape, giggle hysterically till you hiccup and personal victories, big and small.


Here are photos from my personal documentation of his growth. Followed by what kept me super busy in my off hours at home–his birthday party.


I decided to do THE HUNGRY CATERPILLAR because I hate the winter and we needed a dose of vibrancy and verdancy to make spring seem a bit more…present. I am very happy with the way things turned out. When i get another free moment, I think I’m going to package up the stuff that can be reused and sell it as a HUNGRY CATERPILLAR KIT….so if anyone is interested for a shower or b-day… leave your email address in the comments and I will notify you when it is up for sale. 🙂


The onesie was made by my talented pal Heather.
I made the pom wreath.
Gina helped me make the accordion medallions.
The rest was put together via lots of searches online for products that looked like they’d go with the theme.
And the cake was by Hy-Vee. It was delicious and darling. Score.
Special thanks to Kelley for taking pics of the gift-opening for me!!!!
The hat was by this Etsy shop.

  • Darbi's Mom - It was a fun party indeed – was so happy to be able to share in my beautiful little grandson’s birthday party. Can’t believe he is a year old. Time goes so fast! The sad part is it means I’m getting older too! Darbi and Neil you did a beautiful job with the food, decorations, and of course, your darling little boy, my precious grandson!ReplyCancel
