My First Birthday

Hey everybody! Well, Saturday was a special day- my first birthday! It's so hard to believe that I've come this far, from the little, little guy you see at the upper right to the crawly, noisy, much bigger boy you see today!

In addition to all my local family, Grammy, Grandpa, Aunt Amy and Jason came to town to celebrate with me. It was so great to see everyone, and be reminded of just how many people out there care about me. Thanks so much!

Here are some highlights from my birthday weekend: 

Daddy and I

Reading with Grandpa...

And by myself, too
Of course, I'd also like to thank Aunt Jaime for making me an awesome truck cake!

With my name on the back
A big crowd sings "Happy birthday" with me

I think I like it!


How am I doing?

Ah, that was good.
My birthday isn't the only big thing that's been going on. I just started crawling not that long ago, but now I just can't stop! It's so much fun to see something I want across the room- usually a book, a toy, a ball, Mommy or Daddy- and just reach out and grab it.

Which book should I read?
I also had my first-ever haircut. Here's the before and after:

Anyway, I just want to once again thank everyone for following all my adventures in my first year. It means so much to Mommy, Daddy and I. Stay tuned for more fun in Year 2!

Your newest one-year-old,


  1. Happy Birthday Noah. Heard the weekend was a lot of fun!
