Coleen Garcia and Billy Crawford threw a jungle-themed party for their son Amari for his first birthday.
In an Instagram post, Coleen said the setup for Amari’s birthday party was filled with real plants on top of the seemingly life-sized jungle animal figures.
“We got to bring this little plantito’s dreams to life during his special day! His setup was full of real plants,” Coleen shared.
Coleen said she and Billy didn’t have a hard time putting Amari to sleep after the party, saying: “He had so much fun playing and going around! When it was finally bedtime, he didn’t fight it (he usually does) and slept so well right away.”
Meanwhile, Coleen made it clear that those in attendance at the party underwent swab testing for the special celebration to ensure the safety of everyone.
“We limited our guest list to just family and a couple of friends (Wyatt is Amari’s only baby friend apart from Alison), but we still made sure to have every person swab tested for this day!”
Last September 10, both Coleen Garcia and Billy Crawford penned birthday messages for Amari.
"There are a lot of scary and negative things still going on in the world, but you have been our sunshine and ray of hope. We celebrate your life today and every day! Even though you didn’t really get to go around, meet people, and explore much of the outside world during your first year, we still found all kinds of ways to enjoy and live our best life together. And our hearts are always full," Coleen wrote.
"One day you’ll realize that there’s a whole world out there, but I hope these moments when it was just us will always stay in your very core. Be reminded that you are surrounded by people who love you, that you are appreciated, cherished and valued, and that all you really need is within reach. I look forward to watching you make all your dreams come true, and seeing the wonderful person you’ll become one day. But for now, you’re our little baby boy. And we will savor every minute of it,” she added.
Billy, for his part, said: "You probably won’t remember this or just not pay any attention to our messages cause you’re still young. But I want you to know that no matter what the circumstances are, your mom and I will always lift you up when you’re down, comfort you when you’re uneasy, and love you until the world ends. My life changed when I married your mother, and our lives changed since God gave us a beautiful little angel. I love you my son, so much!"
