The munchkin turned one year old last month! I know every parent says this, but he is really growing up so fast! Justin and I joke that the first year was both the longest and shortest of our lives, but without a doubt it was one of the best. Watching our baby grow from a sleepy little bundle into a mobile, babbling, personality-filled mini man has been the funnest thing (and well worth the sleep deprivation, lack of social life, and messy house). To commemorate the occasion we had some professional photos taken by our favorite photographer, KB Digital Designs. (She took our maternity and newborn photos too.) I thought I’d share my favorites – enjoy!
(this one cracks me up…not sure if he’s embarrassed or terrified!)
The cake smash was definitely the most fun part! I saved it for last because of the mess but maybe we should have done it first since he was such a sugar-high happy guy after, haha. He played non-stop for the next 2 hours and then crashed, literally going from sitting up with his toys one minute to sprawled on his back snoring the next. (We try to limit sugar so this was his first serious interaction with it…a lot of it too.) Looking cute for photos takes a lot out of a dude!
We had a second encounter with cake at his birthday party the next weekend! I’ll be sharing photos of the party (and decorations I made!) next week. Seriously so fun to celebrate our little guy, and of course we’re pretty pleased with ourselves for making it through year one!
