|Mommy and Ethan|
So while today is Ethan's official birthday, we did start the celebration a little bit early and had a small little something on yesterday (Sunday). While I was positive I wasn't going to pull out all the stops for his 1st (he won't remember a thing anyway, and I wasn't going to stress out over it), I was going to make sure that there was some type of celebration! I come from a family that loves to party. Ask any one of us and ask anyone who know us. We always celebrate the Big birthdays by having big parties. And if you know even a little bit about me you know I LOVE birthdays!!! So I was surely going to celebrate in some way. Now once he starts to understand what is happening, we are going to PARRRRRTAY!!:-) But in the meantime, I did a few things to commemorate the occasion and to make sure I took pictures for keepsakes.
Since I wasn't doing a BIG celebration, I thought I would use this time to channel my inner Betty Crocker. Believe it or not, I made his cake. :-) Ok, no it wasn't from scratch and my inner Betty was literally a Betty Crocker box cake, but I made it none the less. I tried my hand at some decorating skills and I must say, it turned out pretty well

I added a few more touches of decoration, invited a few family members and close friends over and we were ready for a good time celebrating Ethan!

What a blessing this first year has been! I am so so so very thankful to have this little boy in my life. Some say that now he's a toddler. I guess. I don't know if I'm ready for the T-word. I can already see it though. He's gotten so big and long. Tomorrow will only solidify that as it will be another major milestone - the HAIRCUT. I'll post again tomorrow to let you know how that went as well as put up a picture. He's going to look so different and I'm going to miss that wild hair. Well HAPPY BIRTHDAY ETHAN! Year TWO.... Here we come.......
Until next time...
