Brittany Cartwright and Jax Taylor's son, Cruz, turned 1 on April 12, and Mom and Dad went all with his baseball-themed bash. "This is something that we'll always remember for the rest of our lives," Brittany exclusively told E! News. "Like, Cruz might not always remember this but we always will. And it's his first big birthday party with all of his friends. I just want Cruz to have everything he can have. He deserves it."
Jax is "the best father that you could ever ask for," Brittany said. "He just goes above and beyond. I always knew that he would be a good dad but he just took it and ran with it. He makes bottles and changes diapers; He'll wake up with him. I got very, very lucky."
Among the birthday party's many guests were past and present Vanderpump Rules stars Stassi Schroeder, Beau Clark and their 15-month-old daughter, Hartford; Lala Kent and her nearly-1-year-old daughter, Ocean; Katie Maloney, Tom Schwartz, Max Boyens and Dayna Kathan.
Wondering how Micky Mouse fits into the party's baseball theme? It's simple: Cruz is "obsessed" with Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.
Celebrating Cruz's 1st birthday was bittersweet for Brittany and Jax. As she put it, "It's sad because I look back on pictures and I'm like, 'Oh my gosh, he's not my little baby anymore.' It's just insane how fast they grow, but seeing his little personality come out more and more every day is absolutely amazing."
Guests dined on peanuts, Cracker Jacks, popcorn, hot dogs and other concession stand confections, not to mention birthday cake!
With help from Alpha-Lit Los Angeles, Picnic + Petal, and Glitz and Gather, Brittany and Jax made sure Cruz's party was a grand slam.
