I am taking 4-5 steps at a time.  
I can stand on my own for a minute or so.
I say "ut-oh," "mama," "dada," and mimic what I hear.

#babyB is ONE

Today we celebrated THIS BOY turning ONE.   

Today was the party, but tomorrow, September 13, is his actual birthday.  
I have to say it was SO FUN planning a boy party.  
It's no secret, we love Notre Dame Football!

And by some miracle, we remembered a family photo before #babyB dug into his cupcake.
Unfortunately, most of the photos of our friends turned out blurry.  I am also not good at taking pictures.  We are so thankful for our friends here; they are our family! Thanks for celebrating with us & loving our family.

Here are some photos from the party.

Notice the new book from Aunt Anna.

THE concession stand. 
The nacho bar was complete with chips, taco seasoned beef, queso, black beans, tomato, olives, onion, jalapeno, sour cream, guacamole and three kinds of salsa.

Make sure you make it to the End Zone.

#babyB started off pretty meek with his cupcake eating. By the end it was ground between his fingers, all over his face & icing was in his hair.

The 16 kids played, the 20 adults visited, and I am pretty sure a good time was had by all.

Oh and Ella ate A LOT of salt-in-the-shell peanuts!

Happy FIRST Birthday, #babyB! 
We love you and are so glad you are part of our Notre Dame family.
