Ollie's Birthday

On Ollie's actual birthday, we wanted to try and recreate a special night we had when I was pregnant and expecting him.

Two days before Ollie's birth we were supposed to have a party for Chris' birthday but at the last minute, I started to get the feeling that I just needed to rest, rather than entertain.

After canceling on all of our friends, we let our neighbours know that the party was off, and they invited us to have a "make your own sushi" dinner at their place instead. My memory of that night is of a candle-lit, calm, quietly exciting and completely satisfying experience that made me feel sure that I had the love and support I needed to get through what was to come in the next couple of days.

Since we already had his first birthday party under our belt by the 15th, we decided to invite the neighbours to celebrate Ollie, and our one year anniversary of becoming parents by recreating that special night.
