Honestly, I can’t even wrap my head around the fact that I have a two-year-old! It’s so crazy bananas how fast this last year went. A year ago Henry wasn’t walking, or talking. Fast forward to now, I cant barely keep up with him and the kid is speaking in full freaking sentences! WTF?!? How and when did this happen! He grew from my little baby to a boy. A walking, talking real live boy! HAHA!
But in all seriousness, the first year of Henry’s life really seemed to drag. And not in a bad way. I just remember everyone saying time goes by so fast, but for me, his first year seemed to last two. I don’t know if I was just trying to survive being a new mom, or feeling sleep deprived or just soaking it all in, but the first year was a LONG one! And I’m not complaining about that, but it just didn’t prepare me for year two.
When the holidays were approaching I remember being in shock at how fast this year went. Henry hit so many milestones in this very very short year. He started walking, and then running, and jumping and basically scaring the shit out of his Mama every chance he got. From climbing over everything to jumping and standing on anything he could, my heart got its share of scares this year. And then to talking and talking and more talking. This kid has grown leaps and bounds in his vocabulary. It amazes me every day to hear what he says next! He now speaks in compound sentences. Which, I’m not gonna lie, I had to look up what it was called to put an “and” in the middle of a sentence! Haha! But holy crap, I swear, last week he was still barely crawling and his only word was, “Mama.”
Watching Henry grow into this (sometimes) sweet boy has been the best thing that has ever happened to me. Seeing the world through his eyes brings a whole new meaning to #MakeYourMomentsCount . Because in his eyes, every moment is a new experience and one that he lives his best life. Even through the toddler tantrums and meltdowns, he is teaching me about life all over again. He makes me remember what it means to find joy in the simple things and to cry when I just don’t get my way. Because sometimes a good cry over spilled milk, is all we really need to get through our day.
So after all this kiddo taught me this year, I thought a Fiesta in his honor was the perfect way to show him how much we love him. And because who doesn’t love a party (or a margarita or two!) to celebrate another year! Just about everything I purchased was from Party City and I linked all of my party decor below! I used little maracas and sombreros for the table, paper banners and decor. I also bought bright fresh flowers to add some color and to add to the theme. Everything purchased is linked below, along with a few other things that would be perfect for your next fiesta!
I hope this helps with your next fiesta themed party!
