Cake Smash!

Sunday is Declan's 1st birthday party. I seriously feel like he was a 2 month old last week. Time most definitely feels like it's going in fast forward. As part of my it's-starting-to-get-out-of-control party planning, I wanted to do a cake smash photo shoot. Fortunately I found a great photographer, Natalie at Shay Chic Photography, who was up to the challenge. Here's a peek at our time together:




Now that most of the details of the party are in place I hope that things go smoothly. Declan woke up with a runny nose and is a bit of crab apple today so I'm hoping he's not getting sick just in time for the big day. *fingers crossed*

A little preview of our plans:
~The party is at a "spraypark" which is a good thing...the forecast is 90 degrees and sunny
~Our theme is "mod dots"...you'll have to see the pictures. :)
~I stole my bestie's idea that she used at her son's bday party and took a pic from every couple of months that I'll displaying some cute- yet undetermined- way.
~I made a "1" shirt and a tie shirt for him to sport like the stud he is.

We feel so blessed to have such an amazing son and can't wait to celebrate his first year of life!!
