Turning One Is A Big Deal

My nephew Sanford turned one last week.
One whole year has already gone by in the blink of an eye.
I remember the day he was born...hearing my phone ring just before the sun rose. My sister announced excitedly that I was an auntie and her brand new baby boy was simply perfect.  I hurried over to the hospital that afternoon and held my tiny nephew in my arms. He was perfect. I had recently just found out that we were expecting our own baby in the summer and tried to imagine nine months from that moment...our babies would soon be best of friends.

We celebrated in one year old fashion with a Curious George party.  My sister and mom are cupcake geniuses and we laughed and clapped as Sanford dove into his monkey cake.  I loved watching how new and exciting everything was for him.  He is so so special and we can't imagine our family without him.

  1. A love all your photos. It was one of the best parties I've been to!

  2. me too!!!! I can't believe it has been 1 year!!! Thanks for the great pictures!! ~Elizabeth

  3. Those are cool cupcakes! How creative and fun. I wish I could think of something like that. And it will be nice to have them be around the same age! I have ten cousins on my mom's side, but four of us were born within six months of each other! We all graduated high school the same year.
