My baby turned 1! OK, I wasn't as sentimental as I thought I would be about him turning a year old. Maybe it's because he STILL isn't walking and doesn't really prefer to feed himself. He's not super independent but I wouldn't call him dependent either. Anyways, we celebrated his birthday twice this year! The first time on his actual birthday while we were still vacationing down in Maryland and the second time with friends in Boston.
Looked over on the morning of his birthday and saw him with a Trix stuck to his nose. What a great way to start out the day!
That night we made homemade pizzas, had sparkling cider, cake smash and opened presents. Just what a first birthday needs!
Wish we would have gotten a family shot but this will have to do!
Tennyson Shares a birthday with his cousin Hannah!
Tennyson had help from his cousins to open all of his presents including the hilarious laughing sock monkey that rolls around on the floor from Grandma Becky. She gives the best presents. Then it was off off to bed for our birthday boy.
A month later we did a joint birthday party with our friend Mary who was due 2 days after Tennyson. (Even though Tennyson came a month early we count them as gestationally the same age. I didn't take a picture of the food spread but it was nothing to take note of other then the fact that I started my first kitchen fire in Madison's kitchen. So embarrassing. Tennyson scored with a 2nd cake smash!
And what would the night be without a shared bath with his future girlfriend?
Happy happy birthday Tennyson Beau! You have been so full of surprises your first year starting with your birth and we can't wait to see what a great big brother you'll make to our next little boy Jewkes coming in June!
