In only two weeks....

My baby boy's turning 1!!  My mommy heart couldn't be more full of joy and praise to God for his little life.

Here he is doing two things he loves to do lately:  pull to standing and scoot around using the furniture, and play with the phone if we'll let him (he gained this fascination for the phone from his "talks" on the phone with daddy on the days Brandon has to stay late at church!)

Last week I started a few projects for his party.  The theme will be The Very Hungry Caterpillar (based on the book by Eric Carle), although mainly we're just going to have a laidback bbq with family and friends and celebrate his first year of life.  We can't wait to get together with family!!

Here's a glimpse at the banner I painted....

It took awhile to make as I'm not artistic, but it was worth it. 

I also got the ingredients and items I need to make a caterpillar cake along the lines of this..

(this isn't mine, but just an example of the type of cupcake cake I will make).

As I've been looking forward to Aiden's 1st birthday, I've also been thinking alot about this time last year and Aiden's birth story.  I'll probably post some more about this along with pictures from his party in the coming weeks.
