Vanessa Lachey and husband Nick just celebrated their son's first birthday, but they say the party really wasn't about what baby Camden wanted.
The proud parents say he would have chosen a pool party if he'd had his way, but the first birthday is a time for mom and dad to celebrate their family, when they can take time to reflect on the past year.
“Camden loves to dance, he loves music,” Lachey said. “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. But I won’t do a pool party for his first birthday, because I feel like we have the rest of his life to do pool parties. He’s 1. This one’s for Mom and Dad.”
Both parents tweeted about the event, with Nick making it clear just how proud a papa he is and Vanessa showing off the cupcake love they arrived to in Ohio.
"Celebrating one year in the life of the most amazing little boy @VanessaLachey and I could have ever imagined!! Happy 1st birthday Camden!!" Nick tweeted.
