mommy moments: birthday photos

a taste of his birthday spaghetti, his banner + giveaways

here are a few of my son's first birthday photos. i had my bro, ken, design this layout for a photobook i ordered from artscow a some months back (i made a separate post about it here). 

i wanted my son's birthday to be simple yet very memorable, it was his very first in the first place + i was very excited preparing for it. we had a simple celebration in a jollibee branch nearby. we invited my closest friends, jared's god parents (some were not able to come since we live in a far off place) and some family friends + neighbors. we had games for both kids + adults + everyone had lots of fun. all the hard work + the penny spent paid off, especially when i saw my son's reaction to the jollibee mascot - priceless!

am looking forward to my son's 2nd birthday several months from now...
