We celebrated Henry’s birthday as a three-party occasion. Since his birthday fell on a Wednesday, both weekends and the actual day had some special activities.
First, the weekend prior (during our amazing family session with Scarlet O’Neill), Henry got his first candle, which we stuck in a doughnut, since we wanted his first taste of cake to be at his party.
On his actual birthday we kept it just the three of us and started our day with gifts at 5AM; birthday pancakes complete with sparkler candle; and a trip to the aquarium.
Finally, the following weekend, we threw a party (which my parents generously hosted), with Henry’s grandparents, aunts, uncles and baby friends. The lovely Kayla Yestal was on hand to capture the day for us.
