Reno Photographer | Mommy Monday { Birthdays }

Welcome to Mommy Monday, a spot for me to share with you some of my moments related to motherhood and parenting and the fine blend between family, motherhood and being a Reno photographer. Please note, the information provided in these posts is not to replace the sound and professional advice from your health care provider, child’s pediatrician, certified doula or your own maternal instinct.

It’s been a little bit since my last Mommy Monday post, but here we are again. The Christmas and New Year holidays have come and gone and WHAMMY! It’s Derek’s birthday! My youngest, my baby turned THREE this weekend. SIGH. I was in a bit of angst planning for this as he’s my baby and he’s three now. I think only parents will understand the sort of heartache mixed with excitement with each birthday your child celebrates.

We were up late Friday night making last minute preparations for the little guy’s big day and it was so worth it! His excited little voice in the time between Christmas and his birthday saying, “my bitday” again and again was just worth it. Winter birthdays can be a challenge to plan for, but with the help of the Reno Tumblebus, we made it a blast for Derek and all his little friends. We had the bus for entertainment, along with the boys’ multitude of toys, pizza for lunch and a Peppa Pig themed cake to finish off the party. Derek loves Peppa Pig. Actually, it could be an obsession for him. Long before he could say “Peppa”, he would snort to let us know he wanted to watch his favorite family of British pigs. Oh, how he LOVED his cake!

It was an absolutely amazing day. We rarely host gatherings in our own home, but I’m so glad we did as we could not have asked for a better way to help our baby celebrate his third birthday. It was a really packed event and he was very relieved for the little nap he got in once we got him settled down from all the fun. I really cannot believe my babies are both getting so big. My oldest is already planning his 5th birthday! And it’s so bizarre to tell people I have a “3 and 4 year old”. C’est la vie, oui? Here are a few glimpses into Derek’s celebration!
