We had a fabulous weekend celebrating Mazen! He surprisingly woke up at 3:30am on his birthday, so I actually got to watch the clock strike 3:38 – the exact moment of his birth. I sort of hope that’s the last time I am awake at that hour on his birthday : )
My parents came for the weekend, and we had fun on Friday eating pizza and salad at Fridays After Five and then spent Saturday getting ready for the party. Mazen invited his playmates (and their parents) over for burgers and cupcakes. I didn’t get photos of his friends for privacy’s sake, but it was fun to see our yard literally crawling with kiddos! Maze lit up when his dad carried his Sweethaus cake down the steps and then enjoyed not one but two mini cupcakes. He surprised us all by eating the cake part first and leaving the frosting for last!
Instead of being a teary day for me, Mazen’s first birthday was loads of fun. I hardly remember each month from the past year, but I am also really excited for the year to come!
