Happy 1st Birthday, Barrett!!!

Happy birthday to the most perfect little boy!!! 

We love you more than anything and have enjoyed watching you grow this past year! 

What an amazing and incredibly fast year this has been!!

We kept Barrett's birthday party small and simple...I didn't want to overwhelm him.  The weather was perfect!!  Nonnie, Papa T, Aunt Whitney, Uncle Luke, Aunt Meredith, Hal, and The Solimando's came over.  Ben grilled hamburgers and we all just visited an played.  Ben's parents were unable to attend because Polly fell and broke her hip a couple days before.

Barrett LOVED birthday cake...and that's an understatement!!  ha!  Daddy helped him blow out his candle.  Barrett got a whole piece all to himself and he acted like he knew exactly what to do!  Needleess to say, we went straight to the tub afterwards!   
Barrett got lots of fun toys and new summer/spring clothes!! 

Luke, Meredith, and Hal came and stayed the whole weekend with us which was lots of fun!

1 year stats:
weight: 26 lbs. 5.5 oz.  (89%)
length: 31 3/4"  (93%)
clothing: mostly 18 months
size 4 diaper
shoe: size 5

This quote was shared with my MOPs group by our speaker today.  I thought it was very fitting for this season of my life and definitely one that I will remind myself of often.  I love my baby boy more than I will ever be able to express but yes...some days seem really long.  I wouldn't change a thing though!!  :)
