Our little buddy is one! It's hard for us to believe, but it's true! He is full of wiggles, smiles, and squeals. We love our little Jack and are so blessed to have Him in our family!
Last year when Loreli turned two we decorated the house the night before and it was fun to see her get excited about all of the balloons and decorations. So I did the same the night before and the look on Jack's face the next morning was awesome. I love surprising my kids and making them feel special!
|This is a banner I had made back when I was preggers with Jack. Hey, when there's a deal you've got to take advantage of it!|
I explained to Loreli that when it's someones birthday we get them presents or make them something. She wanted to get Jack a toy and she did a good job at actually picking something he would like and not only she would like. She got him this little pull string puppy and they are both smitten.
Grrr...I forgot to cover our hideous couch and now I am kicking myself. Oh well! I think we are buying a new couch after we get into the new house next month. No more attempting to cover an ugly couch!
A few things I love about these pictures:
1. he is sitting on this knees like a big person does 2. he's holding the puppy by the ear 3. he checks the gender of his new friend
The nice thing about having little kids is they really can't handle a lot of presents all at one time so we spread it out a bit. We had an all afternoon party: present, nap, present, cake and more presents! It was perfect! Loreli did a great job at letting him open the presents, but awaited eagerly for when he was done with a new toy or book so she could jump in and check things out.
|Does she look a little guilty to you?|
Cupcakes! I was excited to see Jack dive in a become a mess, but he was not interested at all. The only bites this boy took were from a fork. Boo! I also wanted to do cake outside, but there were crazy fast winds all afternoon and evening. Oh well!
More presents! He got a lot of books, two dump trucks, and bouncy balls. It's easy to keep this boy happy.

Happy Birthday little one-year-old Jack!
