Jax’s 1st Sea Turtle Birthday Party

Jax is ONE!!! I can’t believe my little sweetie is already one, time has flown by so quickly! It seems like just the other day he was born! We love this little boy to the moon & back & can’t imagine life with out his sweet smile. He is the happiest baby in the morning, smiling as I get him out of his crib & gives the best little hugs! He loves playing outside & the beach is one of his favorite places to play in the water & sand!

We decided to do a cute little sea turtle theme for our little hatchling since he loves the beach so much & they are super cute! We were so excited to celebrate his birthday with our family & friends. We also had a baby sea turtle adoption station for party favors. The kiddos got to take a stuffed animal sea turtle home & they could adopt a sea turtle nest to support these amazing creatures. We did this for Luke & Jax & they will send us updates on how the nest is doing. If your interested in adopting your own sea turtle nest here is the link with the SC DNR. One of the best & also most unexpected parts of his bday was that my Papa brought over a turtle he had found a few days earlier. It was so precious & he got to start a tradition with our boys that he did with us when we were little. We let Jax look at him & touch his shell which he was so surprised & didn’t know exactly what to do-soo cute, so he just touched his shell & smiled! Then we put his name & birthday on its shell & let it go free. We always did that as kids in the thought that one day we would find the same turtle again. Thank you Papa for bringing such a sweet gift & memory for Jax’s first birthday!

Also, Grammy made his sea turtle cake & it was the second star of the show! It turned out so stinkin cute & I just love all the detail she put into it- It was absolutely perfect! Thank you Grammy! We also had lots of help the week leading up to the party with our family helping us string the banners & making the first birthday banner! The icee stand was a big hit with the kiddos! Thank you all so much!

Jax a wonderful time at his party & ate lots of icees & cake!!! We love you so much sweet boy!!!
