Yesterday, we celebrated little Michael’s first birthday!
It’s hard to believe a year has passed since we were in the hospital, peering down at our little one for the first time.
We had a very happy day celebrating his first year. Little Michael was all smiles when we put on our party hats and sang “Happy Birthday” to him.
He tried his first taste of buttercream, and he approved!
Bath time was the necessary next order of business, and then it was time to open some birthday presents. Dad surprised him with an adorable and larger-than-life monkey.
We named him Mr. Snuggles.
Little Michael was excited to unwrap his presents and see what was inside the packages.
When he got overwhelmed by all his new toys, he decided to take a step back, and just pause to take it all in.
The wheels on his shiny red wagon will cover lots of miles. Hauling toys (and remotes) is serious work!
Michael and I are so grateful for all the smiles, laughter, and love our little one brings us each and every day. Happy 1st Birthday to Little Michael!
