our boy

It was exactly 14 months ago when he was born.

14 quick, challenging, hectic, crazy, wonderful months.

In early July, we celebrated his first year. The big ONE.

It was a "Little Man" party. I really couldn't think of anything that suited him better.

He truly is everything boy. Climbing, exploring, growling, wrestling, FUN.

The little guy who completed our family.

He loves to make us laugh until we cry but gets embarrassed at the attention. He's affectionate, would live outside if he could, a daredevil, smart, sweet and adored by everyone he meets.

Since the day he was born, his daddy and I have joked that all that kid wanted was a big, juicy steak.

He finally got it.

It was The Birthday Boy vs. The Steak Cake.

Guess who won! :)

We literally had to hose him down after it had been destroyed.

It was a joyful day filled with people we love... and unbelievably good food, thanks to my soon-to-be-in-culinary-school sister.

I've said it before, but this child gives us so much to celebrate. He and his sister are the children that Mike and I dreamed of.

Happy Birthday, big boy! We love you!
