Big Brother Party

Since before Nash was born, I knew that I wanted to have a little Big Brother Party for Quinn. I wanted to wait until some of the newness wore off to celebrate how special it was that he was now Nash’s Big Brother.

So, Sunday, when Matt took Q to church, Nash and I got ready for the event. We made cupcakes, decorated the table, hung streamers and went to get balloons. We also put out the special trophy that we had ordered.

Sadly, Quinn had a rough Sunday morning…wondering why Mommy & Nash couldn’t come to church too…and really missing Daddy during his class time. So, it was the prefect day to celebrate him.

When he walked in the door, he thought it was a birthday and immediately asked where the presents were. But, when he saw the trophy and fun cupcakes (and got a little “talkin’ to” from his Daddy) he seemed to truly appreciate his special party.

We told him that the BIG star was for him and the baby one was for Nash. He was so proud of that and immediately ran over to Nash to explain the significance of the stars. So sweet.

Quinn’s faces were priceless and the mess we made was HUGE! We may forever have silly string remnants in our yard and on our sidewalk…oh well…it was worth it!

And, I loved celebrating him today!!!

Awesome! I was wondering if you would do this for Quinn. I can't wait until I have a reason to throw a big brother party for my little guy. Right now, his first birthday party is in the works!
