Kormik Bleu turns 1 this coming Wednesday, August 27th, but we celebrated with family and friends this past Sunday! Normally, we celebrate birthdays with just our immediate family because otherwise that would be a lot of parties with our big crew! 1st birthdays tend to be a little different. Traditionally, we have always had big 1st birthday parties for every single kiddo!
Kormik has been sick lately, but he cheered up a bit for his big day! We celebrated in our back yard by the treehouse. We had a pizza party, ate cupcakes and ice cream, watched K. Bleu open his presents, and hit a pinata! It was definitely a memorable day for all in attendance.
Lately, I have started each birthday celebration post with the birthday kid’s birthday photos, but we took Kormik Bleu’s a little earlier than the rest. We needed photos for his birthday party invitations after all! If you missed that blog post look HERE!
^ Kormik Bleu’s birthday romper was made by our friend Kristin again from ThisPlaidShirt! My super silly mom decided last minute that she didn’t really love the color scheme she initially picked out for his romper and Kristin changed it for her! I absolutely love how it turned out! It’s perfect for him!
^ A birthday party isn’t complete without decorations! Our decorating crew blew up a few balloons before the party started. Who would have thought these chosen ones would have the most hot air?! I’m really not surprised!
^ Kai Maverick enjoying celebrating his uncle’s birthday party. Check out those big blue eyes!
^ Kormik swinging with his big brother Brennen!
^ Kormik hanging out with Grandma!
^ Kullen Anton being super sneaky and tapping on each of K. Bleu’s presents! Caught you Kullen!
^ Did I mention that there was a lot of volleyball? That net is a huge hit lately!
^ Obrion gets really into each volleyball game. Perhaps that’s because she just made the Varsity Volleyball team as a 9th grader! Go Obrion!
^ Kormik starting to open his presents with the help of Dad!
^ Everyone gathered around in a big circle watching Kormik!
^ Brennen & Sylvia got Kormik a toy police car that made noise and he loved it!
^ Who knew that boxes could be so interesting to a 1-year-old! He wanted nothing to do with any other presents after he had that box in his hands. Silly boy!
^ Those t-shirts that Dad is holding up were made by Kristin of ThisPlaidShirt for Kormik’s birthday present! They are so cute! I love the color patterns of this first and the shark on the second!
^ Matayah & Mavis watching the presents being open together.
^ Obrion & Taegan! There’s always a silly photo and sometimes a nice one in there too!
^ Kormik playing on his new drum while Dad was reading one of his cards!
^ Before & After! A beautiful group of girls and then Taegan throws a pile of grass at Obrion!
^ Kormik got his first ever 4-wheeler! It’s a Tolo toy!
^ Kormik Bleu waiting for his special birthday cake just for him! Doesn’t he look so sweet in his Stokke?!
^ The little man had no idea what to do when we set his cake in front of him. He just stared at it! It was adorable!
^ Everyone gathered around Kormik after we all sang “Happy Birthday!”
^ For each 1st birthday, we have a special cake made just for the birthday kiddo. We let him/her make a big mess when eating it all by themselves. It’s always a delight to watch it unfold! For a little guy that has been sick lately, he did great!
^ The after effects of Kormik eating his birthday cake! Look at that super cute messy face!
^ After cake and ice cream, we started hitting the pinata! I took so many pictures just from the pinata! I’m not going to share them all because I think there’s about a hundred of them. Oops! Everyone got a chance to hit the pinata from the youngest to the oldest!
^ Mathias was the absolute funniest when it came to him attempting to hit the pinata! Cory spun him around so many times and he just kept hitting in the wrong direction! I wish I recorded a video of this. If anything at all, Matayah’s huge smile in the background explains it all!
^ Kormik Bleu watching everyone with Mom!
^ After all of the kiddos hit the pinata, Dad & Cory thought they needed a turn too! Check out those action shots! This pinata took quite a beating!
Overall, the weather was beautiful and the company was even better! I believe that I can speak for everyone in attendance when I say it was a great day of love and celebration! Happy 1st Birthday Kormik Bleu! I still can’t believe you’re 1!
Love your biggest sister,
