Tucker turns One!'s official our baby is now a year old!  How did this happen?!  How is it that one whole year has already passed by so quickly?  It seems like it was just yesterday that we were bringing Tucker home from the hospital and now we just finished celebrating his first Birthday!

The party was Great!  We love Eric Carle books, so we decided on "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" theme for the party.  We decided on the park for the location.  I felt like it was a perfect place with how much Tucker loves being outside and how much he loves to swing, run, and play!  
I had his outfit made with "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" on it :)

The book provided great inspiration for the party food!
Dustin made the signs in photoshop and I used large popsicle sticks to hold them up.

Jennifer, a girl I went to high school with made the cakes and they were Adorable!  She did such a great job and they tasted so good to... I cannot say enough good things about her cakes!
Juiceboxes for the kiddos.
Bubbles for the party favors.  Again, Dustin made all the labels in Photoshop and I think they turned out great!  (A big thanks to him, because I am clueless when it comes to things like this!)

And cake pops made by dear friend, Alex!

Tucker had so much fun and played non-stop the entire party!  We had such a great day with friends and family.  His first Birthday was wonderful and it was a beautiful, sunny day!  We couldn't have imagined a more perfect first birthday party for our Tucker boy!

Mother's Day

I got to celebrate my very first Mother's day this year and if I had to sum it up in one word it would be, thankful.  Not just thankful for the day, but thankful for the reason I now get to celebrate this day as a mother myself.  I am SO thankful for my Tucker boy, who calls me mama.

Dustin started off the day by waking me up with Starbucks coffee and breakfast from Homewood Diner.  What a great way to start the day!  It was so sweet...I am also very thankful for a husband that celebrates me being a mom!

We all three, as a family, ate our breakfast in bed together and it was so much fun!  What a great memory for my first Mother's Day and we may have just started a new tradition too!

Tucker definitely enjoyed eating his breakfast in our bed.  This was his first "breakfast in bed" experience.  He happily enjoyed his fruit bowl and pancakes :)

I hope all the Mom's out there had a wonderful Mother's day.  My first Mother's day is definitely one I won't forget!  What a joy this journey of motherhood has been so far and I feel so blessed to be called mama!
