My baby turned one, or should I say “uno” last week! I cannot believe the speed in which this last year has passed by! Like a super-duper whirlwind! Is that normal? Maybe it’s just that there are so many people around me all the time, it feels like a whirlwind… maybe that’s it : )
We had a fiesta for Oaks’s first birthday. It seemed a good idea since it is so close to Cinco de Mayo. And who can pass up chips and cheese dip/guac/salsa… better yet, mango salsa? Not me. It was quite yummy! And we had a fun time hanging with family as usual!
These balloons are so fun! And they don’t require helium.
I made burrito cakes! Each “burrito” is a vanilla sponge cake rolled up with buttercream icing inside and decorated with icing and starburst candies. Wrapped up in its foil, you really can’t tell it’s cake from a distance! We had fun eating it, too!
He started sipping from a straw too! Way to go, Oaksie!
I love that you are getting so big, but I’m sad it’s going by so fast! This year you’ve helped me keep my cool and have brought much peace to my heart.
You have three teeth and sweet little curls. You love to eat, can crawl and pull up, like to dance, like to imitate laughing, can clap, say “ball”, “mama”, “dada” and what sounds to be ” Ezra” (big brother). You’re not sleeping through the night yet. You are a good shopping buddy and like to people watch. You love to wrestle with the brothers in the pillows. Everybody loves you! (especially me) Each day is brighter because you are in it!
Happy first birthday, my baby!
