The first birthday - what a milestone! I can't believe how quickly my little man is growing. I wanted Joe's first birthday party to be a day our family and friends could relax and enjoy. We went in circles for awhile on the theme, but I ended up choosing what I want his future "big boy" room to be. That way, we could recycle all the decorations. And so Joe's "Time Flies" vintage airplane birthday was created. Time literally flew...and who could resist a cutie in an aviator hat?

I received an email from Joe's daycare that all Valentine's are due on Friday. I didn't realize that was a thing for 1 year olds, but apparently it is. Of course I wasn't going to go out and buy the standard tear-apart Valentines, but I was pretty short on time. I decided to use things I had around the house to make homemade cards for his classmates.

Believe it or not, Valentines Day is one of my favorite holidays. Maybe because it's right after my birthday, or maybe because it's an excuse to be extra cheesy. I wanted to spread a little love and give Joe's new teachers a little something to let them know we appreciate them.
