Baby’s First Birthday – Ivo’s Turning One

It’s hard to believe, but Ivo is already nearly one! This year feels like both the longest and the shortest of my life. This time in 2013, I was already a week overdue, and every day felt interminable. Little did I know, I was living through my last few hours of complete freedom, and I should have cherished every one. Long, lazy baths, reading historical novels, watching movies at the cinema – all of these things were soon to become relics of my past! We’re planning a double celebration for Ivo’s birthday. On Sunday 13th, we’ll go to London zoo with my side of the family, and then the following weekend we’ve invited my husband’s side of the family to a Peter Rabbit themed party. I’ve had a brilliant time planning all the fun details – take a look at my Pinterest board to get a sense of some of the ideas I’ve pulled together. It’s Easter weekend, so we’re combining his birthday with a big Easter egg hunt for the older children. I imagine he’ll be oblivious of it all – baby’s always look so confused when everyone sings Happy Birthday to them! Take a look at the invitations I designed – I always make my own stationery, it saves a fortune, and I really enjoy the process.
