Hayes is 1!

I cannot believe my baby is 1. How is that possible?

We had a big party for Hayes today. The theme was "The Poky Little Puppy." Hayes loves all dogs he sees, so the theme was easy to pick. All the party guests signed a copy of "The Poky Little Puppy" with a special birthday message. The color scheme was green, yellow, and light blue. Ready for tons of pictures? Here goes!

This will only make sense to you if you have read the book...

Such a handsome birthday boy!

I also had an adult foods table....I will share those recipes in a later post!

We had such a great time with friends and family celebrating Hayes's big day. Thanks to everyone who came!

Mommy and Daddy have had the best year of their lives thanks to you, Hayes. We love you so much!
