I promised to come back and share a few details from Teagan’s Valentines Day Mohawk Party (as Taryn called it).  Here goes….

the two large hearts on the right were made by taryn and ty and they hung on the front door the day we brought teagan home from the NICU.  i was so excited when i found them in our valentines day decorations box and hung them in the foyer for his party.

party favors, each child had their own little mailbox with goodies tucked inside.

we made valentines, everyone made on for themselves for their box and then one for teagans.  we put all of teagans valentines in a scrapbook with photos from his party.

little dude photo by michele, fit our mohawk theme perfectly 😉  i also saw the cake michele had made for her litte man by humble pie desserts on her blog and called to see if they had any room for a big old cake on valentines day.  i was thrilled with how it turned out, Jeanna did an awesome job!  it not only looked great, but it was so yummy too.  the custom made birthday hat is from this seller on etsy.  Loved the hat, durable and soooo well made, the inside has a custom fabric in brown dots, super cute!

the cute little smash cake….

we ate more than cake though….lots of heart shaped food

loved this idea from bakerella….little oreo cakesters cut out with cookie cutters, so cute!  if you don’t follow her blog, you should, it rocks!

my boys.  i love the way teagan is looking over his shoulder (he was looking at my friend alli…he loves making sweet eyes with alli)….and ty was sporting the faux hawk

a few of his favorite gifts….i spy a cute little lily, a geegee and a boy thrilled with the ball pit.

cake time baby

and MC was worried about the teeny tiny little crayon mark jack got on the table cloth….puh-lease 😉

oh yeah, it was good.  i think this one is my absolute favorite of the day.

now for a little video….and as always….a few things to note:

if there is anything i hate worse than the way i laugh, it is the way i sing.  that’s not me you hear singing.  nope.  no way.  no how.

when it first starts up you’ll hear taryn say “i’m scared” in the background.  the child has a complete and total irrational fear of the happy birthday song.  hid under the table and all.

ty is sitting next to teagan just out of the shot.  ty wanted more than anything for taryn to dive in to her cake and she wanted nothing to do with it when she turned one.  ty had big hopes for teagan that involved a face plant.  you’ll hear him egging teagan on, he gives the order and teagan goes for it, p.e.r.f.e.c.t.  ty was thrilled.  and it totally cracks me up.

i love the way teagan takes his first bite….mmmmmm

i think that is all, just remember, that is not me singing.

So, there are all the details, we had a lot of fun and loved celebrating our little man.
