What a YEAR!

One year ago today, a six-pound cherub joined our family.A lot has changed in our lives since then. I can't really imagine life without Scott. He is our favorite person.

So, to celebrate him today, I made some cupcakes:
And gave one to Scott tonight:
And watched him smoosh the frosting with his fingers:
and shove some in his face:
and pretend like he's all done...
when 90% was dropped on the floor, intentionally.
I think tomorrow night, I'll try feeding it to him on a fork and see if he enjoys it a little more. He didn't really understand how to eat it.

We also went to Ikea to buy Scott a few toys. The cobbler's bench was one of my favorite toys they had at church when I was little, so we got him one.
He's still a little young for it, so he wanted to eat the hammer instead.
Then he went to bed. Pretty uneventful day, but since he doesn't really know it was his birthday, I think that's okay.

Happy Birthday Scott! Thanks for joining our family! I can't wait to get to know you better. I hope we'll always be friends.
Love, Mom

What a cute post for a cute boy! Your cupcakes are awesome... I realized when I decorated a cake recently that it's really hard to write with frosting but you seemed to have figured it out pretty well! I love your sentiments at the end of the post and I love all the pictures. It makes me sad that I haven't met the boy and he's already a year old. Good thing we have the internet. ;)

Happy Birthday Scott! Great pictures, thanks for sharing the pictures! I wish Gianna would have enjoyed her cake a bit more, it looks like Scott dove right in!

Wow, a year. Really? I'm glad we got to share some fun moments of that year. Ice cream. Games. New baby. How fun!

By the way, I'm jealous that you just "went to Ikea" as if you can do that everyday. Oh, wait...
