I cant believe it, my little lovey turned TWO last weekend!!! <3 I never believed it before whenever parents used to talk about how quickly their kids grow up. Well, I am here to tell you: IT’S ALL TRUE!!! Time flew by so quickly–it seems like only yesterday when I had just given birth to the cutest little baby boy, and now I have a toddler. If only there were a ‘pause button’ we could press to allow us to take in all the wonderful memories so we could remember each one forever. The reality is, we forget to take a moment and enjoy what’s in front of us. Thank God for photos, though there’s never enough time to organize them!
And so we celebrated Tristan’s birthday with his favorite theme: CARS, TRAINS & PLANES! Our little man enjoyed so much he didn’t want to leave his party! It was an entire afternoon of singing, storytelling, doing arts & crafts, eating and playing with his best buddies. He was the happiest little birthday boy, and I was the happiest momma to witness it all.
As you know, Tristan has been using NUBY feeding products since day one (I’ve been posting about it in Instagram). We love these because they are super safe, easy to use and clean, and are oh, so colorful. Tristan’s NUBY feeding bowls, utensils, and water bottles have gone with us around the world as we make sure to pack them when we travel. It has made feeding Tristan super fun and easy, and I recommend it to all parents who are looking for safe feeding products for their babies. That’s why when Jenna Sy of NUBY (and Aprica, which I am also a complete fan of) asked me if they could throw Tristan a party, well, I couldn’t say ‘yes’ fast enough.
What a party it was! I am so thankful to all of the suppliers and sponsors who made it all possible:
Styled by Deiz (IG handle: @styledbydeiz) for making this dream theme come to life. We had giant airplane centerpieces, a giant locomotive train and Tristan’s name is lights! We couldn’t ask for anything more. The meeting room in F1 Hotel, BGC was transformed into an amazing play area. The kids couldn’t get enough of it!
Instamug (@insta_mug) for the cutest giveaways! All the grownups got to take home customized neck pillows (in theme, of course) and the kids took home drawstring backpacks to store all their goodies in.
Teacher Jill (@jilliancarla) for turning the party into a fun learning classroom. The kiddos loved all the activities, and the adults enjoyed watching them learn, create and have fun. She provided all the materials needed for the activities, and had such a calming effect on the children. They were so behaved, even though they had cake! This is such a great idea for a party if the celebrant is a toddler.
Melo Balingit (@melobalingit) for the photos! I’ve known Melo since the beginning of my modeling days so we go way back. It was nice to work with an old friend for Tristan’s party. We love all of his photos!
NUBY (@nubyph) / APRICA (@apricaph) / Jenna Sy (@jennasypr) for organizing this super fun party for Tristan. Jenna and I communicated through What’s App and really, that’s all it took to make it all happen. All the coordinating and logistics were by wonder woman–we love you so much, JENNA! <3
Belo Baby (@belobabylove) for sending a giant cake for Tristan!!! We blew the cake twice, and I have to say, Tristan enjoyed it and asked to do it again and again hahaha. It was delicious! Also, thank you for sending Belo Baby giveaways for the kiddos.
Pampers #PampersBestInTheWorld for sending a yummy chocolate birthday cake and Cerelac NutriPuffs treats for all the kids!
Cycles and Cradle (@cyclesbaby_ph, @cyclessensitive and @cradlenatural_ph) and Bite Block (@biteblockprotect) for the giveaways. The parents especially loooooved receiving them as most of them are fans of the products.
Initially, I wasn’t sure if I wanted a program for Tristan’s birthday. At his age, he doesn’t really understand kiddie party games. I am glad Jenna suggested we get a teacher to facilitate fun learning for the kids because all of the children (including Tristan) enjoyed! They sang songs, made paper cars and airplanes, listened to stories and played to their hearts’ content. It was so much fun to watch the kids do the activities. Of course, the parents and yayas were there to help when they needed it.
Since Tristan had two big cakes, we decided to blow the candle twice. This was good practice for our little guy, so when we got to the second cake he knew what to do. Of course, he doesn’t know how to blow the candle yet, but he enjoyed watching mama do it. Happy Birthday, TRISTAN!!!
HUGE THANKS to all the guests to braved the rain and the traffic that day. Some arrived later than expected, but everyone had a great time once they got there. Tristan loves all of you!!!
THANK YOU so much, NUBY for making this party happen! It was an unforgettable day for the Fernandezes. #TRISTANlovesNUBY!!!
