Landon's {first birthday}

We had planned for this party for months and it was everything we dreamed it would be and more! When you have a child and they have a birthday, you want to make them feel so special! It is their day after all. It was a joyous occasion for us as parents because WE MADE IT! We made it through the first year. We made it through sleepless nights, tears from time to time (baby and mama), a couple of trips to the ER, spit up, temper tantrums, diapers (if you know what I mean)...but of course we don't celebrate just the not so fun side of parenting. 

We also celebrated that every day of ours begins and ends with this sweet baby boy. We look forward to seeing him so we can see the fun new things he can do everyday. We talk about waking him up when he's asleep because we want to snuggle (although we have tried this before and it goes over like a lead balloon-so never again). We cheer when he does something good, like bringing mommy the book so she can read it to him, or going to sit in his big boy chair, even when eats we just sit and watch him, because he's always so smiley and enjoys eating! This year has been a roller coaster, but one that is high up, because there have definitely been more highs than lows. Parenting is such a rewarding job, and I can't imagine my life without this ONE year old in it 😍.
