happy birthday, bryce

Our sweet little boy turned one today! I think he had a great day. I went back and forth forever about whether or not to stay home for his birthday. I knew that he wouldn't know either way, but it was more for me than him! In the end, I decided not to take the day off. We still had a great afternoon and evening!
We go to the doctor tomorrow for his 12 month well baby visit. I should have height and weight stats tomorrow. He is scheduled to get shots, but he has had a horrible cough this week so I don't know if he will end up getting them. I think he must have gotten my cold, but his sounds much worse. I took him to the doctor yesterday and he checked out fine.

Bryce had his favorite, macaroni and cheese, for his birthday dinner!

MeMaw and PaPa came over and brought Bryce a Leap Frog birthday cake. I think I was more excited than Bryce! I had seen this at Target a while back and thought about buying it, but I thought it was so cute that someone else was bound to buy it, too. Guess I was right!!!

The birthday cupcake for the birthday boy!

We started off neat and fed the cupcake to him.

Then we let him take over. first birthday cupcake ever!!

No better way to end the night than a story in Daddy's lap.
I am amazed at the fact that we have a 1 year old. Where did the time go? I have enjoyed every minute of this past year with Bryce. I may not have always acted like it in the moment, but I wouldn't have traded the gift of motherhood for anything. I can't wait to see what the next year brings for Bryce. I don't want to rush it, but I look forward to all of the amazing things he will be able to accomplish as he grows. He has already impressed us beyond belief. It is just amazing to me that he can see a bus and say "bus" or say "bye bye" when we tell him to. Happy Birthday, Bryce man. We love you SO much!
