Zachary’s First Birthday

July18

My little bitty baby that I just had…

250 (768x1024)

…is one year old.

He drives cars now.

Sigh.

We made him a cake. This is Andrew hammering some hard candy for my sugar sculpture (I’m making that sound fancier than it is.)

We made jokes about playing Candy Crush. Mostly me. Andrew mostly didn’t laugh. Cause I’m not funny.

This was the cake. (All the pics from here on out are my dad’s. He’s awesome.)

It’s a campfire! Cause it was a cowboy birthday. (This is totally what cowboys do, right?)

Sure they do.

This is me awkwardly reading a blessing (off my phone) for my beautiful child. I wasn’t so much awkward in real life as awkward in my head cause I feel like I’ll never get used to acting like a religious person out loud. If that makes sense.

But these babies made the sacred all obvious in my life, so that’s what I do now.

I’m all full of sloppy emotion over this boy. My sister-in-law was all, “It was hard when my last baby turned one too,” and I said, “Last?!?!? Oh, no, if I thought about it that way, I’d be much worse. I haven’t given up hope yet!!!!

Love you, baby boy. May you enjoy many, many more happy trips around the sun.

    Thank you! And I shout-out to YOU for letting me run over and steal foil at the last minute. I could never bake without you. 🙂

    My goodness. That little boy is uncommonly cute. Well done, Julie. You have good genes.

    Thank you, P-Whitty. (Note: first autocorrect suggestion for P-Whitty is O:-)Shitty.) I’m glad I married those handsome genes every day.
