First Birthday

Someone turned ONE last week.

My Baby Boy Jackson
This feels like years ago and yesterday all at the same time....


Now he is ONE year old .... growing up but very much still a baby. I don't know what I expected at a year old. I had it in mind as such a big milestone. I though for sure he'd be walking, but I am totally ok with that fact that he isn't. He is eating more and more food, he had pancakes for the first time the morning of his birthday! He is super friendly and loves people. He has a great sense of humor. He is still a notoriously bad sleeper (I thought for sure by a year he would be sleeping THE WHOLE NIGHT, but alas...) I see the toddler phase fast approaching and that is just plain crazy...

Please slow down, JW!

Happy birthday little buddy.


Happy First Birthday JW!

Happy First Birthday JW!

I made him these pancakes for his birthday...

happy birthday gorgeous boy! his lips are stunning.

not to sour the celebratory mood, but i had a bad sleeper too. sleeps light as a feather, but at 3.5 years, she finally declares she is tired and wants to go to bed and sleeps through the night! patience is the best gift/practice we can give ourselves. :)
