How did I forget to blog photos from Remington's 1 year session?! Everyone told me that once you have children, time flies by even faster...I've come to realize that everyone was so right about that! We celebrated Remington's first birthday with our family and close friends, and it was the perfect day! We had beautiful sunshine and a nice breeze. Remington got a highchair that he "helped" us pick out that day, and he absolutely loved sitting in it and taking in the view! That evening he fell asleep in my arms and I cried big, happy, bittersweet tears. Our baby was growing up. He'd reached a big milestone. And my how the time seemed to have zoomed by since first meeting him a year ago. Remington, you are such a joy in our lives, we love you to the moon and back! A few days after his party, my Mom helped me with Remington's 1 year session. We were quite a sight to see that day with a stroller, big balloons, a cake, toys, decorations, an overstuffed diaper bag, and camera gear! Whew! It was a lot of fun though! Here are some favorites from that day!
Peek a boo!
Ha ha ha! I can just hear him squealing in this one!
Oh how I love this face!
After some quick portraits, it was time to bring out the cake and balloons!
Isn't this cake adorable?! Our sweet friend, Lisa, made it! Besides being an absolutely delicious chocolate cake, it was decorated even better than I had imagined! Thank you so much, Lisa!!!
He loved holding onto the number 1! And he still plays with it when he finds it in his toy bin!
I used some decor from his room too - the letter R and the striped rug.
At his birthday party, once he got a taste of his cake, he just played and played, making a huge chocolate-y mess! However, this day, he was a little more reserved!
I love that icing was all over his little hands and feet!
Love you, sweet baby boy! xoxo, Mommy
