To start out, a week before his birthday I took Nolan on a little photo shoot to get a cute pic for his birthday party invitations. It was a quicky but I definitely got some cute ones. It wasn't hard...look at this kid!
I had a hard time choosing which picture to use. But in the end I decided to go with a balloon one.
Our lovely guests...
The proud parents.
If you're wondering why the picture of Nolan and I was taken in front of a church building...well, as usual I forgot to hand the camera over and get a picture taken of me. We remembered later that day, after my cousins baptism. At least we got one.
I caught him getting into the presents.
Everyone enjoying their cupcakes.
My family wanted to be apart of the celebrations too, so on Monday night we had another little party with them. My aunt made a trifle...delicious. Nolan thought so too.
By the time Wednesday rolled around (his actual birthday) we were celebrated out. I did sing "Happy Birthday "to him but that was about it.
I am so grateful for this little guy. He has opened a part of my heart that I never even knew existed. This past year has brought us so much joy, not that there weren't rough times (cuz there definitely were) but the highs far exceeded the lows. He has brought such a light and peace into our home. I love him so dearly and am so grateful he's a part of our family.
