Birthday Celebrations

With the arrival of Paxton I wanted to keep things simple for Jack's birthday. We had a little party at his school and then celebrated at home as a family on his actual birthday. A few weeks before his birthday we were facetiming with my mom and nephew. Mason was talking about how he was going to have a ninja turtle birthday party. Jack decided that is what he wanted to. Even though, he doesn't watch Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I thought he would forget about it, but he was pretty insistent. So, I picked up TMNT plates, napkins, and cupcake toppers for his class party.

Jack was so excited about his party at school that he hardly napped and when we arrived for his party he was the only kid awake. We had to keep telling him to be quiet until his friends woke up.

On his actual birthday I decorated a little the night before and when he woke up he got to open up a rocket shirt to wear and then we went on a donut date.

When Ty got home, he opened presents and had cake.

toddler backpack

Jack was gifted this seersucker backpack for his first birthday by my sister. We keep it stocked with quiet activities and snacks to keep him entertained during church. This has become extremely important to us in the last couple of months as Jack has developed an irrational dislike of bible hour and has been sitting in big church with us. He loves going to class before big church, but one mention of bible hour and he gets hysterical. Toddlers are weird.

The most important thing we put in his church bag is Smarties. There are none pictured above, because I don't dare show them to him. He would eat as many packages as he could. It is the first thing he looks for each Sunday morning.

Other items that keep him quiet, pictured left to right:
And by quiet, I mean they each buy us about 30 seconds of peace. ;)
  • Bible--doesn't really keep him quiet, but he is proud of it.
  • Buzz Lightyear
  • Melissa & Doug Water Wow--These are reusable and are perfect for road trips, airplanes, restaurants, church, etc.
  • Melissa & Doug Color Blast--The marker only marks on the paper and not on the church pew, etc. Jack doesn't have markers at home, so I think these are special treat for him.
  • Tegu Magnets--These wooden magnets are so much fun and I love that they come in a convenient carry case.

Peekawhoo! New website!

I love giving gifts, viewing gift guides, etc. I'm the girl at the shower that genuinely wants to see every present opened. I think it's so fun!

My love of gifts (and shopping!) has me so excited for the grand opening of the new Peekawhoo website! I'm even more excited that Peekawhoo is offering all of you 20% off anything on the site with the code LAUNCHLK. (The code expires July 31.)

If you are looking for a baby or toddler gift (or even something for yourself!), then visit Peekawhoo!
They sell so many of my favorites for Jack and Paxton! We are pretty obsessed with the bunnies, but we also love these backpacks and this gown. Jack has the navy backpack and we use it as his church bag and carry his snacks and quiet toys and coloring books inside. It is adorable with his name on it! I think I'll be ordering Jack the matching dopp kit!

Paxton looks pretty cute in his gown! I love gowns for those first months. They make middle of the night diaper changes so easy.

How perfect are these scrubs as a gift for your favorite nurse or doctor's new baby?! Kelley, the owner of Peekawhoo, generously sent these scrubs as a gift for Paxton. They are so soft and there are snaps at the neck to make it easier to get the top on.

I'm off to place an order for a dopp kit for Jack and a few special gifts for others! Don't forget to use the code LAUNCHLK for 20% off through next Friday!
