If you are new in this article, you can read about our prolonged IVF journey to get to both Otis and Duke so this initially birthday is a further one to rejoice.

Our households have earlier not been there for birthdays because we lived so much so that built this one particular that a great deal much more magical.
Because we constantly simply call Duke “Mr. Smiles” I realized the theme for his birthday get together instantaneously: Smiley Experience Theme. Sweet just like him! Smiley facial area equipment are fairly quick to come by so I knew it would be a breeze to get almost everything alongside one another for it. You know how considerably we love a balloon arch in this property and Blake is mainly an specialist at balloon arches now. I assume he may truly enjoy it dare I say!!
We requested bbq and I produced a cheese and veggie board to munch on. I was initially going to make the cakes but I ran out of time and decided to buy them from a regional bakery. Luckily, I talked to the sweetest lady who blended some blueberries into the vanilla batter because Duke Enjoys blueberries.
Duke ate HIS Full SMASH CAKE. He enjoys to eat so so a lot and I really do not think I have ever observed a infant try to eat a smash cake like Duke has. Just after his cake, he moved onto spherical 2 or BBQ. I just like his pure joy and what I like is that whilst 1st birthday events are a lot more for the parents, I KNOW FOR A Point that Duke appreciated it so a great deal. We like you endlessly sweet Dukey. See all the resources under for the party!
