more of the ONE year old

Sweet boy had some more gifts to open up on his actual birthday :)



And, he also got a special delivery from Nana Judy, Bapa Ron, and Aunt Holly, Uncle Jon and Cousin Chloe! :)  He has been loving all of his new treasures!


Still having fun dressing him up on Sundays!  I think I may just try to get a pic each time he looks delish! :)

one.


not sure why one feels different, but it just does.

we've survived....a whole year.

a year ago i wasn't sure if i was even going to like this new baby of ours....i mean, i really hoped i would, but wasn't sure.

my heart has been a puddle of mush for him since i first laid eyes on him.

seriously...

this boy, my boy....he is precious.

i am so thankful that he was given to us.

yes, i haven't slept a full night in a whole year, but i have been able to have him call out for me each night for a year....

i hope he knows how special he is, and how much we adore him.

so incredibly thankful, and grateful, and gol.....i am so in love....

Finn's 1st Birthday Party

This little guy has my heart.....

i mean, seriously....look at him? :)



We spent bits and pieces of this last week getting ready for Finn's party :)  I was able to do little things here and there when Finn napped.

I got a lot of ideas off of pinterest too!  It's amazing what you can do with crepe paper, a sewing machine, and a glue gun!


Nana Dianne came and she was the baker!  I found a wonderful cake recipe and got a buttercream frosting recipe from a friend, and lets just say.....it was delish!!!


Had to make a fun poster all about our little guy!

Nana Dianne and the star of the show before his guests came!

We had a very relaxed "open house" and it worked out so well!  Lots of our church family came, and we loved opening up our home for them.

Finn seemed to be pretty interested in the cake!  Hard for this momma to sit back and let him get dirty,  but I did!  He had a fun time, and ate a little of it!






just love this little boy....oh so much!

Olivia with our friend Brigitte!

Some of the boys from church!


The guests liked the cake, too :)  score!




So fun to celebrate this little guys life with those we love!

After naptime, we had present opening!  He did pretty well, and really loved all of his new things!








soooo blessed!

Finn's room, talent show

We got the girls moved to their room!  Now we're just busy figuring out what goes where! :)


It was another busy weekend/week around here!  Now that the girls moved to their new room, it was time to transform their old room into Finn's new room! :)


For a couple of days, we would just go in and play in there, so he got comfortable being in there! 

And, here it is!  Not sure why it looks so lime in this pic, but it's just a plain green :)  He spent his first night in there on Tuesday!

I was looking forward to having another room for him that would be a "safe" place....not so much...this kid is into everything!


Avery took part in our city's talent show on Thursday night!  She sang "Maybe" from Annie, and did a wonderful job, even with a cough/cold!!!
