Birthday Party

We celebrated Henry's birthday last Saturday. It was supposed to be a pool party, but it rained all week and consequently all day Saturday. We moved the party to our house, which was a little nerve-racking because it's up for sale! We made it work and enjoyed our guests. Thank you so much for coming and celebrating our baby boy! We even had some out-of- towners, Aunt Wendi, Grumps, and MeeMee came. Henry LOVED his cupcake. He didn't let a drop go to waste!

Nana gave him a phone for his birthday because he's OBSESSED with mine!

All the family but me...taking the picture ;-)

Aunt Wendi (how great is this picture...why won't he do this for me?!)

Helping Daddy open gifts

At least we got a picture together!

Henry's real birthday was on Tuesday of this week. We went out to Texas Roadhouse, a local favorite. My dad ate ribs and thought Henry should try some! He gave him one of his bones that had some BBQ sauce on it...a tad redneck so I snapped a pic.
Happy Birthday, Doodle! We love you so much!

What a difference a year makes!

My sweet baby boy

Today is Henry's first birthday, and I'm consumed with thoughts of where we were this time last year. My precious Doodle was on his way. I am humbled and overjoyed that God would create such a gift and allow Jared and I to borrow him and raise him. We celebrated his birth on Saturday with family and friends. Pics to come...

Happy Birthday, Henry, you are truly loved! :-)

This was supposed to be a mohawk during bath time but oh well...I just think he's so beautiful sometimes! :-)

I'm so proud of...

ME!!! Henry will have breast milk for the entire first year of his life! This week I'm finally allowed to enjoy a day without having to stop every few hours to pump. There are so many benefits of breast milk, and it became important to us for Henry to have it for as long as I could produce it. It just worked out that I produced enough and had the patience to stick with it for this long! I have enough stored in the freezer to get him to his first birthday and a little after. Yea! When I first went back to work in June, my production decreased dramatically, but I didn't give up! Thanks An, for the pep talks and referring me to the lactation consultant...and, of course, all the difficult/time-consuming caring you do for our little Doodle! I know he loves you and is so well taken care of! So cheers to me!!!! I'm really quite proud!!!
