A year ago I was told that the years past quickly. They were not kidding! I guess I can officially stop blaming him for the extra weight right? The first birthday party went off without a hitch.
The theme was Thomas the Train, so Elijah came dressed for the occasion in an OshKosh conductor jumper with a red bandana.

I resisted the urge to go all out, but I did manage to do a small arts & crafts project of his monthly pictures. Before Elijah, I enjoyed scrapbooking so it was nice to use the tools that I spent so much money on. Maybe oneday I will start scrapping again.

Made by Barb the Cake Lady, the cake tasted as good as it look! (Barb has been making cakes for me and my friends for years now) Elijah enjoyed his first taste of cake. I would say he enjoyed his first sugar high, but my mom was here for 10 days before his birthday and you know how grandmas are!

We rented a moonwalk and a sno-cone machine. Both were big hits with the kids. We also had 'Pinky Panties' and Peach Ciroc.. both were big hits with adults :-)

 Note to self always designate a picture taker. Unfortunately, I don't have many picures from the party! So to you new mom's, don't forget a photographer (unless you have a good memory)

A Year in Review

Every month I chronicled Elijah's growth by taking a picture. Every keeps asking me where I found the numbered onesies, well here's the secret.... they are actually stickers. I ordered them from Etsy before he was born. Although he is always willing to smile, depending on the time of day, he grew a bit restless and did not want to stay still. It was a lot easier when I propped him up using pillows. Now he is bigger than the pillow!

Looking back at the pictures, it is unbelievable how much he's changed over the past year.

Fastest 10 months ever!

I can't believe Elijah is already 10 months old! check out the pictures of my big boy. It was kind of late and he didn't feel like smiling much. Since I was already 2 weeks behind on taking the picture, I happily accepted whatever I could get out of him.

I've officially gone from hanging out at the latest hot spots, to planning a kid friendly atmosphere. I feel like he won't remember so I can relax and save all my ideas for the latter years. My girlfriends are already riding me about the 'event of year' so I'm exhausted just thinking about it
