Happy 1st Birthday Alexander!

The Birthday Boy!!
(Notice how he is poking the bears eyes. This was the best shot I could get though!)

Wow. It really does go like warp speed. It feels like just yesterday that I had him, that he was teeny tiny, that he learned to roll over, crawl, and walk! What a year! A year of so many firsts for baby... and us! Alex, you have brought us joy like no other! Happy Birthday Baby! You will always be my little baby boy. We love you to the moon and back! I can't wait to celebrate the many many more!

We had a quiet day of birthday fun. Just some quality time with Mom at home and the park. Auntie Jo came over to love on you in the afternoon. When dad came home we took your bear picture and measured your height on your growth board- birthday rituals! And we had your little party....presents and a cupcake. The cupcake was just practice to get ready for Saturday- the big party! :) We let you stay up late because I think the chocolate was too much for your little body to handle and you were wired! But it was fun- you really crack us up with how you walk in circles around the house wanting us to chase you. You love to laugh, thats for sure!
