abel is ONE!

I can't even believe I'm typing this. HOW IN THE WORLD HAS IT BEEN A WHOLE YEAR?! Our sweet boy is officially a one year old! Entering into parenthood was a bit crazy with this guy. Arriving early, 6 1/2 weeks to be exact, it was a wild start. It's hard to believe he was once a preemie, weighing in at a whopping 5 lbs. He currently is 27 lbs. -- basically just rounding that up to 30! He's always on the go with one speed- FAST. We are just so in love with him + all his personality.

It's exciting looking back to see how he's changed + grown over these last 12 months. Although, as you can see- laying still was not an option after month 8. (lol) 

I found just about everything for the party at Target (dollar spot for the win!) And we just went with bright colors- after I found these mega cute (clearance) invites. Love how everything was fun - just like our boy.

 While out on "maternity leave" it was super fun to just play with some flowers. Those purple anemones are just show stoppers. It wouldn't be a party without flowers (even for a first birthday ;)  #lifeofaflorist

 These cupcake toppers were my absolute favorite. Putting them together, I couldn't help but smile + crack up. We certainly have a character on our hands; with so many silly + sweet faces.

first time having sweets (i'm that mom) - but his reaction was fun. he was slow to attack, but once he figured it out... he was all about that icing. smart kid. 


thanks to everyone who came + celebrated with us. it was so great to be able to have it at our home + have it filled with folks we love! thanks for making this birthday so special for our kiddo. <3

Abe is on the go + walking is in the very near future. (ahhh) he's very curious- especially when it comes to June. this is such a fun stage, but I'm so excited for this coming year; watching our little fella continue to grow. Abel, you are the sweetest little thing. Thank you for making me a mama + being everything I ever dreamed of in a little boy + SO much more. You are so loved + adored.
