A not so happy first birthday!

Our little monkey turned one yesterday! Yay! I've been planning her party forever and planned on doing a grand blog post about it today. We organised a pink monkey themed birthday party for Charlotte and invited tons of friends and family to share this special day with us. I've been so busy with planning and decorating the last couple of weeks that I didn't even have time to blog! But unfortunetely things didn't turn out as planned. Charlotte was admitted to the hospital on her birthday with respiratory problems. Her oxygen levels were so low that she needed to be hooked up to a machine for some extra oxygen.  Medicine alone didn't relieve her enough. We had to cancel her party and have been in the hospital ever since. We hope she'll get released on Monday and that we can manage her problems at home. But for now, it's still very uncertain!

 I'll probably still post some pictures of what her birthday party would have looked like. It all looked so beautiful and I would hate to see it all go to waste.  Who knows, you might get some inspiration out of it! Now people told me that the first birthday is the most memorable one, and that I wouldn't forget this day very soon. Well, I can definitely say they were right! This was a birthday we're going to remember for the rest of our lives!



  1. I'm so sorry to hear that, I hope Charlotte gets better soon. Best wishes on her birthday!

  2. Sorry to hear the cutie was under the weather. Hope she feels better soon. You will have many more years of wonderful birthday celebrations, first one may not have been the celebration you hoped for but a celebration indeed none the less, Much blessings :)
