I took my first weekend off in a long time in order to celebrate my son’s 1st birthday. He is our little miracle, so it was quite the celebration. Here are some pictures I took this morning in honor of his birthday. He is really mobile now, although he isn’t walking. He loves to crawl and cruise around furniture & walls, so keeping him in one place is a bit of a challenge. I figured it out, though! He received a gift from his aunt & uncle for his birthday. It was a little chair. So, all I needed was a nice blanket drapped over the chair, and voila! I have a stationary man for my pictures! He didn’t like it after a while, though (as you can tell by the pictures), but I still managed to get some great shots of him.
He certainly loves his Elmo!
Ok, so this shot looks like it was fun & easy. Well, it wasn’t. I’m lucky I got him to smile with the hat on! He maybe left the hat on for no longer than a second. I had to be really quick!
Here, let me translate, “Stop putting that hat on me, Mommy!”
His great-grandmother painted him a beautiful step stool wooden box with a bottom drawer and a top that lifts open.
There he goes! Needless to say, we were all done with pictures 🙂
