When Bubba joined our "little" family a year ago, he was so tiny! There was no way he was going to ever turn 1...I was sure he'd stay my baby forever :)
Well, he's still tiny and still loves being my baby, with snuggles and coos...but like it or not, the calendar determined it was time for him to turn 1!
We headed to Papa and Mimi's house for the weekend (because Mommy and Papa had important concert tickets...priorities!) so we decided to celebrate Bubba a few weeks early!!
(And...since his real name was revealed on this blog when he was born...I've included his cakes with his real-life name...so don't be confused when you don't see "Bubba" written on the cake!)
A year of Bubba!
(nut-free cake again!)
With Great-Nana :)
Humoring Mommy with his crown
Dairy-free smash cake
(more on that in another post!)
covered in icing with help from his siblings :)
And he's 1!
Happy birthday, Bubba!
You came into our life as a great surprise and have kept us on our toes every minute of every day! You are the sweetest snuggler and cutest smiler. You can brighten any day and have brought joy to so many rough situations in your short little life. You grow at your own pace and do things on your own timetable. You have taught Mommy and Daddy patience and faith in ways we never knew. You complete our family and have brought us such peace. We love watching you turn into your own person and can't wait to see who you become. Stay little a bit longer and keep snuggling :)
We love you more than...everything!
