Happy Birthday Daniel Part 1 of 3

I warn you now: I am a picture FINATIC and I couldn’t just settle for a few. Today, we celebrated Daniel’s first birthday with my dad’s family. We enjoyed pizza and cupcakes!

Daniel devoured the pizza! It was his first time eating it and he downed one WHOLE slice!

One of the ONLY decorations I made was this banner covering his first year of life. As you all know, I have had a mini “birthday” session every month. It manifested itself into this birthday banner that covered from birth to his 11 month birthday shot. It was so weird to watch him grow in 13 photos!

Then, it was time for the REAL fun! Daniel was given his very own cupcake!

It was a slow progression that quickly became messy!

I want to draw your attention to this shirt that Daniel is wearing! Allyson Bishop, an acquaintance of mine, whom, I recently snapped Christmas card photos for, made him this birthday shirt!! Also, a bib to go with it to protect it when eating all of that messy cake!! She hand sewed (sewn?) this herself, and I LOVED it! Perfect for saving their normal clothes, and something you can set aside in your baby’s keep sake box! (you will notice the bib in the photos of Daniel eating. FYI: the backside of that bib was corduroy! how neat!)

Daniel LOVED every thing he received from his family. He ESPECIALLY loved the cards. I love that he didn’t love the green that came inside; instead, just the cardboard. :- )

After present time, he played awhile with “PawDaddy” otherwise known as grand-daddy or to me, just daddy! :-)

This is a picture of Daniel with his Great-GREAT grandmother!

We had a wonderful time at his birthday party! We have a day planned of mommy, daddy, and Daniel time tomorrow and then another party this coming Saturday so that the rest of our family and friends can partake. More photos to come! And. . . did someone say. . . . one year old photo shoot?!? Hmmm…. maybe!
