the birthday boy

My baby turned 1 on the 1st.  I know everyone says it about their kids, but truly, I cannot believe that he is one.  He was 2 months old when we moved to Arizona...can't believe how fast our first year has gone here too.

Jake woke up happy and excited about his presents.  I think he knew it was his special day because he was extra happy and giddy.  We got him some blocks and a wagon that goes with it and a Little Tykes basketball hoop.

He got a package in the mail from the Bowen's - Jake and the Never Land Pirates figurines.  I think Brooklyn enjoyed all the presents more, but Jake was excited about her excitement.

I love the excitement on his face in this picture :)

We were busy getting things ready for his party that night (next post) but Jake (and Brooklyn) were happy to play with his new toys. 

I take him to his 1-year appointment on Tuesday and will do a 12 month post on him with his stats after that.  I sure love this boy - he always puts a smile on my face and makes me so happy.  I'm so grateful that he is mine.


  1. Oh my gosh Beck that bottom smile is to die for! He is sooo cute. Sounds like a nice birthday! Excited to see his party!

  2. He sure has a smile that melts your heart! Love him! Happy birthday big man!

  3. I love that last picture! Can't believe Steve Jr. is ONE!! Time flies. Is there any happier kid than Jake?

  4. Wow! Crazy he was 2 months old last year when school started?! He is such a sweet and adorable boy! I am praying that my baby boy coming will be even half as calm and happy as jake!!!!!

  5. I can't believe how fast the time has gone. He is adorable and sweet in every way!
