Happy {ONE} year to Jax!

Yesterday my baby boy turned one! I can't believe how fast this year has gone.
We threw him a dinner party last night...it was some crowded fun!
{mommy went overboard on the invitees!}
Pictures of that to come!

I wanted to get his 1 year pictures taken professionally by my friend Stacie, cause she does an awesome job! But I didn't catch her in time. So then, with my dad in town, I was going to have him take the pictures...buuuut, I procrastinated that and he stayed pretty busy when he was here (yay!). So...I had this grand idea to use my friend Jetta's treehouse...and the morning of his birthday, I took him over there and snapped some shots!
 I do have to say, it was a little precarious getting up there...but Jetta was a sport, and since she is littlier than me...she got all the way up there with him, lol. I just stood on the ladder and prayed I wouldn't break it!

Doesn't he look so handsome in his little man hat?
 He didn't like it at all...but he was a good sport!
 And Jetta jammed it pretty good onto his head! lol. He thought it was hilarious.
I decorated his party in the "little man" theme...complete with felt mustaches, ties for everyone {instead of party hats} and paper ties for the kids to decorate. And one fedora. I couldn't find any old hats at the thrift stores I frequent....so I bought one from Target, since they are obviously popular {and expensive!}, I'm hoping I can get James to sport it every once in awhile ;).
 

 I sure do love this little boy! He stole my heart the minute I saw him. He's been such a blessing in our life over this past year....I can't wait to see who he grows up to be!
Happy Birthday Jaxson!
