This party was similar to Duke's 1st birthday in that Pinterest did not explode in my house. I wasn't feeling well enough to do that even if I wanted to! I'm just a better "chill" party planner at this point in my life. Maybe I'll change at some point, but for now, simple is my jam.
Colt and I decided we would just invite family to this party. It's a pretty rare thing that Duke has 5 great-grandparents living and I wanted this to be more of a focused time where Duke got to be with all of these important people at the same time. We all had a lot of fun
(Isn't my Mama Lue beautiful??)
(The spread - thanks to every family member for bringing a little something to add to the meal. Made my life so much easier!)

(Duke has a thing with snow globes, so his Grammy and Papa got him a kid-proof one.)
(He loved it so much, he needed to give it a hug.)
I will say this: Year 2 flew by way faster than year 1. I was absolutely taken by surprise when his 2nd birthday began creeping up. Duke just feels so much like a little buddy to me. He fits in with my days and does exactly what I do. It's been a precious thing being at home with him these past 2 years and getting to know every little thing about him. I look forward to more of it.
