Happy Birthday to Drake! We had a fun celebration for him on Wednesday. He actual birthday is September 6th, but since that is the day he starts preschool, we celebrated early.
He had a blast! We don’t do big parties with friends and family, at least not yet, but that doesn’t mean we don’t make the day special! The night before I set up the living room and table with decorations and balloons. Since Drake has been on Thomas the Train kick, we did a Thomas theme, complete with balloon, six foot poster, plates, blowers, napkins, tablecloth, centerpiece, and happy birthday banner. For extra fun, Damian and I set up Drake’s wooden tracks on the floor for him to play with.
The excitement was real when he came out in the morning to find our living room (his play space) transformed for his birthday. He loved it! He played with the track set up, said hello to the giant poster, and ran around looking at and talking about everything. After the initial excitement, he got a little over stimulated, and the train tracks came in handy to help him regulate.
We had a great, low key day, enjoying the party decor and balloons, new toys, and special treats. We planned to take Drake out to do something fun, but he was so content with his party at home that we changed our mind.

Welcome to the family!
We are a laid back, fun, family of four living on a dime in 900 square feet. Life might not be perfect, but every moment of every day, it is beautiful.
