James turned 1 yesterday. How did this happen? I have no idea. Although I can barely remember our family without him, I still feel like he's my itty bitty baby boy. He has grown up so fast and I feel like this first year has flown! He has brought so much joy to our family in the last year. One of my favorite things in life is to watch Elizabeth and James together - they play, they laugh, they obviously love each other. What a blessing.
Yesterday we had a small celebration with just our family. We will have a little party in a few weeks, but we wanted to make the day special.
He loved his cupcake - his first dessert. YUMMY!We wanted to go easy on the toys since we have SO MANY toys already. We went to Wal Mart to get him a couple of things. I was holding him in the Bjorn and started looking at this little pig that moves around and makes noise. He was fascinated by it. He was laughing at it and put his face right up next to the pigs' face and started "talking" to it. It was so funny. So, we decided we had to get that for him. So, he got that big blue ball from Elizabeth. And then this little piggy, a little construction vehicle and some clothes. In this picture, he's laughing at the pig.
