Nicholas' First Birthday

Nicholas turned one this past Saturday! It is so hard to believe that a year has passed since his blessed arrival. It has been the happiest year of our life and we are so excited to continue to see him grow into his second year. It is amazing how much he has changed during the past year from a little infant who was only awake long enough to cry or eat, to a loving little boy with amazing personality. I found myself constantly remembering and thinking back to the day he was born this week and thinking how much he has changed our life for the better.

Nicholas had lots of firsts on his birthday! First haircut, first piece of cake and ice cream or anything sugary, first molar, first party!!!! We had a lot of fun! Chris cut Nicholas' mullet off and he looks so cute! Chris does a great job on his own hair, so we trusted him to do a good job on Nicholas' too and he did! We invited some of Nicholas friends, along with his grandparents, to celebrate. It was a great party, even though the house was packed from wall to wall.

My mom made a delicious carrot cake and Chris parents made cute party favors with a beautiful wooden car made by Pop-pop.
I thought the car theme was a good idea considering that was Nicholas' first word! We wouldn't have been able to pull the party off with out the help of the grandparents. Thank you so much!!!!

We hope you'll check out the slide show of Nicholas' first birthday!
