Milo's "If You Give a Moose a Muffin" Party

We had beautiful weather for Milo's party this past weekend.  

The theme was "If You Give a Moose a Muffin" because we've called him our little moose since the day he was born, 
weighing in at 10lbs 1oz.   The name stuck and now he answers to it :)

I love, love throwing parties and actually enjoy making the invites/decorations/etc.  His party was pretty short, sweet and simple, but it was perfect for a first birthday.

The theme evolved to include all the Laura Numeroff books.

Blueberry, banana and bacon/egg/cheese muffins.

Monthly pics hung from balloons.
My sweet niece, Sadie!
morning essentials:  mimosas and coffee.  And I love the pic of my ladies in the reflection.
Fletch was in heaven.  This child loves breakfast.
I've made all the boys' smash cakes.  I enjoy cooking but loathe baking.  So these little cakes are always a labor of love.
All store-bought cakes from here on out kids...
There's something so satisfying about seeing a smiling baby covered in cake.
Get it, buddy.
Sharing with Lolli.
A kiss from GG.
Love from Mimi and PopPop
Milo collected lots of items for the animals at the Humane Society.  And gave out moose cookies as party favors.
Snuggling with Uncle Sean.  The Moose was not happy to be woken up from his AM nap at first.  He warmed up soon enough.

And a few pics from Milo's actual birthday...opening presents from us.  
He got an activity table and personalized Royals jersey.
loves his new activity table.  brothers in the background reading bday cards.
Brother love!  (and my child who refuses to wear clothing)
First birthday success.

For nostalgia.  The other three on their 1st birthdays:
