Birthday Party

Since Spencer's 1st birthday fell on a Tuesday, we had a party for him with family on Saturday (April 9th). Here's a few pictures.

Loves the homemade ice cream.

With his cake -- they're blocks (in case you couldn't tell)

He sort of got the hang of opening presents...

We got some great stuff that he's been playing with all week long. Thanks to everyone who came and made his 1st birthday party a really fun memory!

Time for a Haircut... ?

When my brother(s) & father can do this to my son's hair... does that mean it's time for a haircut?

Yeah since I can now put it in a ponytail... I think it might be time.

We tried to get a family shot at Spencer's birthday party... here's the best we got.

1 Year Old!

I'm sure I'll begin every birthday post with the line "I can't believe my baby is __!" In this case, I can't believe a whole year has passed! And what a year it's been ... moving from New York, finding a place to live, getting settled in, adjusting to being parents, starting a chiropractic business and trying to build up a cliental. Wow, sometimes I'm amazed that we survived :) We never would have made it through the year without the support of our families.

We celebrated Spencer's 1st birthday yesterday. People ask me all the time if I can imagine life without him. Well, I do remember what life was like before him (a lot easier to do stuff!) but he's a perfect fit into our little family. He's bright, inquisitive, and a whole lot of fun to have around. We love him to pieces and know that he came to our family exactly when he was supposed to.

He loved the balloons we got him.

Since Spencer has no idea what a birthday is, it was a pretty low-key day. We had family dinner, dessert and presents. Here he is with his peanut butter fingers.

With presents.

He's soooo close to walking on his own... we hope this will give him the encouragement he needs.

We've been very blessed to have such a happy, healthy baby. Happy birthday sweetheart. We love you so much. We're so grateful you chose to join our family!
