Well, at 10:53 AM Jackson was officially 1! I still can't believe it. We had a busy week leading up to the big day including meeting Santa and his 1 year photo shoot. I thought for this post I would just show the pictures of the actual day and catch up with the rest next week. I can remember last year how excited Greg and I were to meet our little man. We had no idea how much joy one little person could bring to our lives. He has been such a blessing, and we couldn't imagine our lives without him. There are so many memories that I will cherish from this last year...the first time he smiled, the first time he giggled, the first time he said dada and mama, the first time he crawled, and finally when he walked. I feel so blessed that I was able to be with him for each of those amazing milestones. I thought I would look back and pick a few of may favorite pictures and end with the pictures of Jackson getting his first taste cake.
Jackson all snuggled up sleeping in his crib for the first time. It is hard to believe that he was ever that small.
He was so animated with his smiles even at 3 months old. I love this picture because not only does he have a great smile, but it is also the time when he was losing his dark newborn hair and his blonde hair was coming in.
This was one of the first times Jackson really giggled. Greg gave him a carrot and kept saying "What's up Doc?". He thought it was hilarious!
This picture depicts not only how proud he was of himself that he could sit up by himself, but also the massive amount of drooling we had to deal with when he was cutting his first tooth.
My little man. So much personality at 1 year. I know we have some amazing years ahead of us with him and I look forward to each and every one of them.
Okay, I have had enough. Saturday is Jackson's big birthday party at Southern Prep. We are so excited that Aunt Sarah and Uncle Mike are flying in from Indiana and Noni and Granddaddy and driving in from Charleston. It should be a lot of fun!!
