1 year old!

Oscar reached his first major milestone on Friday, hitting the ripe old age of 1!

Oscar turns 1!

He woke up at his usual time of 5:30 AM on his birthday morning, so we took a leaf out of the Durham’s book and started his day with presents in bed. He doesn’t quite get the wrapping paper thing yet, but I’m sure he’ll get plenty of practice over the years. Also, he’s not very greedy – once the first present was open, he pretty much wasn’t interested in anything else!

Nonni and Poppi visited with more presents in tow, as did Mia and Pa a short time later with even more presents! It really was quite a good haul for a one-year old!

On Saturday afternoon, we hosted a little afternoon tea for a few of Oscar’s nearest and dearest. One of Oscar’s favourite things to spot are little bees, and as such we had a bee-themed party that Kristy had spent many hours preparing – not the least of which involved her and her Mum making the little bees for his cake!

Thankfully, he seemed quite pleased with the end result!

All in all it was a lovely first birthday for our lovely little boy! We’re looking forward to seeing the adventures that Year #2 brings us!
