Ask any new mummy — who feels like just yesterday she brought home a newborn and is now planning baby’s first birthday bash — and she’ll tell you how fast a year can fly by. As a daddy of two kids, I certainly feel the same way. And not just that, I really thought I just did Maxine’s newborn photography a couple of months back! (Check out Maxine’s newborn photos here) Time really flies when you watch your kids grow up.
Baby’s first birthday is a once-in-a-lifetime affair, and as parents, we all want to make it a memorable one. While Maxine’s first birthday party isn’t a extravagant bash of sort, Dennis and Jeanne invited a intimate group of close friends and relatives to celebrate this huge milestone in an unforgettable manner. Simple food fare, free flow of coconut drinks and myriad of colorful toys to entertain the small kids filled the open patio. And not forgetting that almost each invited family brought a birthday cake to celebrate, I counted 5 birthday cakes in total!
The party ended with a blast when Dennis lit up the sparkler firework candles on the birthday cake. Maybe Maxine is too young now to remember all of these, but these photos will serve as her memories when she grows older.
