My baby boy turns one

Just over a week ago my baby boy celebrated his first birthday. It was a bright and sunny morning, just like the boy himself, and we had a lovely little garden party surrounded by family and close friends.

Usually gatherings of this nature stress me out, but this time, knowing my natural inclination to take on too much, I unashamedly outsourced the cake to my sister-in-law who is a bit of a cake decorating pro and shared the food efforts with my parents and a good friend. Mr P also did the pre-party grocery shop. It might not seem like much, but the small act of accepting help really made a difference to how I felt in the lead up to the day. And it all went off perfectly, there were yard games, relaxed chatting, mingling of friends new and old and some happy, sugared up kids at the end!

Here are a few of my favourite photos of the day (all taken by my lovely friend Leonie Clark):
