Happy couple Nick and Vanessa Lachey celebrated their son Camden's first birthday Monday. Instead of the party being a big extravaganza all about the baby, it was actually more for his parents, and it was a simple gathering.
According to the Examiner, the Lacheys decided to host a laid-back party with family and cupcakes.
Little Camden is starting to show a difference between his likes and dislikes, but he is still too young to appreciate a full-blown party. Mrs. Lachey told People, “He loves to dance, he loves music… He loves the water — the pool, swimming, the beach — to the point that when we give him water and try to sign ‘Drink, drink,’ he literally puts his face in the cup and starts [acting] like he wants to go swimming.”
Lachey did plan the party around a pool theme, but beach ball decorations were as good as the little guy got. When asked why she didn't let Camden swim around on his birthday, she replied, “I won’t do a pool party for his first birthday ’cause I feel like we have the rest of his life to do pool parties. He’s 1, this one’s for Mom and Dad.”
The pool parties, clowns and piñatas will have to wait a few years – or maybe they'll be brought out for dad's birthday. Nick Lachey will turn 40 this November – will he have a bigger party than Camden?
Vanessa Lachey isn’t done party planning — in addition to Camden’s big first birthday shindig, she’s also getting Nick’s 40th going for November.
The model and actress posted a photo to Twitter, saying, “Cam's 1st Birthday in Cincy was a success! Beautiful day, lots of sweets, and so much Love! #TimeFlies”
