Forrest turns one


On the 12th my little cub turned a whole year old. His actual birthday ended up being a bit of  a wash out. It poured all day and involved a poorly Daddy so we postponed most of the fun until the following weekend when we threw him a small little celebration. We tried to keep it very simple as our flat is tiny and we didn’t want Forrest to get overwhelmed. We needn’t of worried as he absolutely loved all the attention, the gifts and I think he is still coming down from the sugar high.

The party was roughly themed on his two favourite things in the world- lions and sushi. I am not really sure what a lion and sushi* party is supposed to look like but it went something like this.

(and if you’ve picked up Forrest or read this blog for the last year you would realise that is a whole lot of cake.)

Thank you to my lovely friend Blair for the bulk of these photographs. I really appreciated being able to just enjoy myself and Forrest without having to worry about having a camera permanently attached to my hand. I have yet to do Forrest’s 12 month photo (to be honest I am avoiding it as something tells me he will not be willing to sit still for it). I hope to have it done in the next week but in the meantime,

Happy First Birthday little wolf! We love you!

Nb) * there was homemade sushi but we snaffled it all before I could get my camera out. There were also decorations and tonnes of homemade prettiness but I forgot to photograph any of it because I was having way to much fun- oops! but I suppose that is the way it should be.
