The Little Boy is ONE!

I've been a lazy, slacking blogger lately.  Sorry. :(  I should have lots to blog about soon.  But big news...

My little guy turned 1 year old on Monday!!!

Wow, I can't believe I have been a mom for a whole year now and have had the privilege of raising this precious baby boy.  I feel so lucky and blessed. 

We've gone from this-

To this-

And this- 
 To this-

From this-
a teeny baby in your bouncer
 To this-
almost too big for the bouncer

Just look at you today, I couldn't love you more or be a happier momma.

My dear Grayson,

I love you so much.
You can always bring a smile to my face.
You are such a sweet and happy boy.
I can't imagine our family without you.
You bring us so much joy!
I love the growling noises you make when you play with your lion, tigers, or cars.
I love how you giggle and run to the fridge or dishwasher when you see them open.
You love to go on walks and be outside and climb the stairs outside our house.
I love your 4 little teeth.
You make the funniest sounds and love to play "repeat the sounds I'm making with Mommy."
You are quite the curious little guy and get into lots of things. 
You are quick at climbing the stairs!
Your fake laugh makes me laugh.
I love how you love to chill and watch your Baby Einsteins when Mommy needs a break.
You are NOT shy with strangers which is nice when we drop you off to a baby-sitter. :)
You are great at sleeping through the night.
You can sign "eat" "more" and "all done."
You do not sit still for a diaper change to save your life unless we put on a Baby Einstein for you to watch during it.
You are the BEST baby in the world and I love you so much!

your mommy

So I'm in the process of planning a party for Grayson this Saturday.  Which is keeping me pretty busy.  I'll give you a hint at the end of this post though... ;)

However, we did have a family celebration about a month ago while my mom and youngest sister were here.  Here are some pictures from then.  

My mom made some cupcakes for the celebration, cute huh?!

Something good is about to come...
{man look at the scraggly hair!}

Digging in!  He quickly just stuck his head right down to the cupcake instead of picking it up at first.  It was hilarious.

...aaaaand now we need a bath!

Like I said, this was a month ago.  But the big party is coming up!  Here's a hint and the pin that started it all. :)
