Mr. One Year Old

2012 February 17
by Folgate
I cannot believe my sweet baby turned 1 yr old.  It doesn't seem possible that a whole year has gone by since he graced us with his presence, all 10 lbs 13.4 ozs of pure joy and sweet baby boy!  I still remember that day like it was yesterday, and yet somehow, it does feel like it was a long time ago.

For his first birthday, we wanted to make him feel extra special.  And what better way then to go where dreams come true...Walt Disney World.  On Grant's FIRST birthday (1/26), we took him to Disney for the FIRST time, where he received his FIRST haircut.  We had such a blast and Grant was fantastic.  We all really enjoyed ourselves!

Magic Kingdom

That following Saturday (1/28) we had a BIG carnival shin-dig to celebrate his life.  I planned for his birthday for quite a few months and was so worried of what the weather would be like.  Since Grant is a January birthday, it could have either been freezing/raining or sunny/beautiful.  Thankfully it was the latter.  Surrounded by family and friends, we had a great time bouncing in the bounce house, eating cupcakes (and other carnival themed food), and singing Happy Birthday.
