I have to admit I wasn't super excited when I woke up on his birthday. I found myself reminiscing the previous year over how much joy Porter has brought to our family. I just don't want it to go by so fast. I want to make sure I cherish these moments with him as a baby, because I'll never get them back. After I had my moment of being an emotional and crazy mom, we celebrated Porter's first year with some fun activities!
On Saturday August 7th we had a big monster theme party for him. I don't know why I was stressed about making it perfect, because it ended up being so fun.
I think the best part was that Porter thoroughly enjoyed himself. He loved being around all the kids, and he LOVED the water.
Grandpa and Bryant did a great job at the BBQ.
The cake was a team effort. Thanks Autumn and Holley!
Andrea volunteered to take all of the pictures during the party. They turned out so great, and it was nice to not have to worry about snapping a shot of everything. She got some great shots of friends, family, and the kids having fun in the water.
Soon enough, it was time for the cake. Porter had never had sweets before this moment, so he went to town on his cake. He didn't even care that everyone was watching him!
By the end of the party he was exhausted. I could see him trying to fight sleep, but it was inevitable.
are just a few...
He pats your back when he hugs you
He's been fascinated with fans, since he was a newborn
When he's really upset he'll cry without breathing, and then stick his tongue out without any sound
My hair is the first thing he grabs in order to fall asleep
He is always Happy!
He likes to touch his own eyelashes
Anytime he hears cheering, he'll clap along with it
He's a Mama's boy
He'll drop things on purpose, then say "uh-oh"
When he feeds himself, he makes sure to rub some in his hair
He loves to give kisses (mostly open mouth and slobbery)
His teeth came in funny...instead of the front 2, he had one front one and a side tooth next to it.
He has brought so much joy to our little family. We are so blessed to have this little boy and we love him so much!
