What a Difference a Year Makes

Roughly a year ago, I looked this this:


Yep, big as a house, ready to pop and swollen in all the wrong places.

We came home with this, all 9lbs 1oz. 22 in. of our little man. So very hard to believe he is a 1 year old today. The past year has gone so fast. He went from eating every 2 hours, sleeping a lot (mom, not so much), to rolling over, to crawling, and now walking up a storm.


Yesterday, he looked like this:


Little man enjoying his 1st Birthday Party with family and friends. He tore into that cake and ice cream like it was his last meal, and even started licking and biting the paper plate when it was all gone. Later he was thrown in the kitchen sick for a good wash down so he could open his gifts. For the next one, I'll remember to do gifts FIRST.

A good barbecue was had as well - brats, hot dogs, potato salad, baked beans and fresh fruit. Typical summer entering into fall meal. The weather was beautiful and I'm pretty sure everyone enjoyed themselves.





















It's sad to think my little man is growing up, but I am thankful for his good health, his wonderful personality, and the smiles he brings to my husband and I each and everyday. We couldn't have asked for a better boy.

Hug your little ones today!
Stayed tuned tomorrow for buffalo chicken dip...

  10. He looks so sweet eating the cake! My neat freak daughter (obviously didn't know it at the time!) actually ate her birthday cake with a fork!

    Not a crumb on her face - we both laugh at her one year video tape about that now!

    Glad the party went well!
