Scenes From a Cake Smashing





Last Weekend my Baby celebrated his very first birthday....and to say the least I cried a little.

A year ago, when I was still chilling in my uber-chic hosptial gown and holding the most precious thing in the whole world.....I never even thought about how fast this year would go.....


though I probably should have had some idea....with the last three years with my first born......those could win the Indy 500 with how fast they've flown.....oh there go the tears again....

It was only a short year ago, that I was so, so, so very large.....I swore my doctor had lied to me, as a cruel joke, and that I was going to giving birth to at least 2 babies.......if not more. My daily routine consisted of waddling behind a rambunctious 2 year old, trying to figure out a new and better way to try and put on shoes....if only I could see my feet.....and swearing up and down this is my LAST pregnancy.....EVER

and then I met him....the boy who I have a feeling will be my shadow......who I will be kicking out the door to go hang with his friends, because he'd rather hang with his cooler than cool mom....and the one who will probably be living at home, much longer than he should......


and the one who made me rethink my promise that he would be my last pregnancy EVER. Though I'm not sure the hubster is going along with that one......


So to my chagrin....this year has come....and my baby has turned the big 0-1.....sigh

The hubster is off again....flying those not so friendly skies, the BIG celebration is just going to have to wait till he gets home....and let me tell you it is going to be the shindig to beat all shindigs.....with cowboy boots, big barns....and BBQ........

But this week, we still need to celebrate my wee-man's special day.....and what better way than an old fashioned cake smashing. My Baby, my Camera and I went to a fabulous little spot....that I swear could be the inspiration for Christopher Robin and all his friends in The Hundred Acre Wood......




and had a wonderfully messy time......





My sweet, sweet boy......who has made this family complete....who solidified my love for having sons.....and has made every day so much brighter, when you gift me with one of your 1000 watt smiles, that reach all the way to your big brown eyes......

and thank you for having mommy's eyes.....I was starting to feel a little out numbered.....

You are my special gift.....my special boy.....


and I will love you forever and a day........

I wish you so much for your birthday.....but most of all I wish you love, and happiness and peace of spirit.....all of which you give to me.....

Happy Birthday to your little guy! You captured that "time" perfectly, beautifully. As a mom of 5 (sons), I laughingly always recommend 3 - 3 is the perfect number - if one is put out with one sibling, there is always another sibling.

Hope your husband comes home soon. Your celebration sounds marvelous!

HOW precious is THAT?! Our daughter will celebrate 1 year in less than a month now.

It is amazing how it does go by fast, even though a lot of days felt like they were crawling by with her because she was such an unhappy, fussy baby quite a bit (with reflux, though, who could blame her, although I suspect mostly it was from just not liking being a baby! LOL).

Visiting you back from SITS... thanks for your comments about the Patriotic Berry Trifle. Hope you're able to make it this week and that it exceeds your expectations! :)
