Felix Turns ONE!

On Sunday, my little chubba turned the big ONE.

It’s been quite a year. It has flown by so very fast, but there have been days and weeks that have been so, so very looooong. In so many ways, it has been the best year and in others it has been the hardest.

We had a quiet day, playing with his new toys (he was a pro at unwrapping!) and exploring some rock pools before letting him loose on a little cake I made for him. I think he enjoyed himself.

Clean up time

It’s the first time we’ve done a (teeny tiny) ‘cake smash’ and it was so fun watching him enjoy it. I thought outside was the best bet for keeping the mess to a minimum, surprisingly there wasn’t much!

Have you done a cake smash before?
What have you been up to?

  1. Happy birthday! What a little cutie, and gorgeous photos!

    I think cake smashes are such a great way for a baby to really enjoy their cake. Why not let them really experience it when they can still get away with it!!

    • Thanks Emily! It was our first cake smash and I am sad we didn’t do it with the others now, it was so fun.

  2. Oh my, those pictures are beyond adorable! My ovaries are expoding. Or melting. Or screaming at me to DO SOMETHING DO SOMETHING MAKE ONE OF THOSE NOW!
    Just gorgeous. Happy birthday, Felix. #teamIBOT

    • Haha, I have a pre-made one you could borrow 😉

  3. Oh happy birthday little guy! You got through the first year, well done mumma. I know it wasn’t easy for you and I can empathise a little too easily! We will be preparing for a first birthday so very soon and yes I agree, best and hardest year. I have so many emotions about it.
    I haven’t done a cake smash before but I think I just might this time around. I like what you did here with the mini cake and letting him loose with it. How fun!

    • Thanks Vicki! This was our first cake smash, and I loved it. I don’t remember them being a thing when my first two turned one but I recall deciding against it for our third.
      He had a great time eating it. I am glad I only gave him a tiny cake, though, I feel like he would have happily eaten a whole one!
      Looking forward to seeing what you do when your little one turns 1.

  4. Congrats Becky on ‘making’ it through a really challenging year. Happy Birthday to your son. It looks like it was a fun time. You and James make lovely kids xxxxx

    • Thanks, D. There were moments I wasn’t sure we would make it!

  5. Happy Birthday beautiful boy! I can’t believe he is one already! That time flew past. He is so adorable.

    • Thanks Jess. The year has flown. I can’t believe it. I wish it didn’t go so fast.
