You've had a birthday shout HOORAY!


Nathan turned ONE year old yesterday (Holy smokes)!

When Nathan was born we spent our first week driving back and forth to the hospital every couple hours to see Nathan in the NICU. At that time I never could have imagined celebrating his first birthday but now that we have it feels like the first year FLEW by. 

We went from this:

 To this:

In the blink of an eye (almost). 
This is how I found Nathan when I got him on his birthday morning and how I frequently find Nathan after he wakes up in the morning or from naps (pant-less).

Here are some pictures from his birthday. The balloons I had filled the day before his birthday had lost all life during the night but Nathan didn't care. He played with them while Blake and I got ready for church. 

When we got home from church we skyped with my parents so they could watch Nathan open his presents.

 He really didn't care too much about the presents because....

He just wanted to talk to Grandma and Grandpa Batt. 

He loved showing Grandma and Grandpa his mad driving skills.

Later we had some birthday dinner with Grandpa Holt and two of Nathan's cousins.
He wasn't sure what to make of his birthday cake (glad I did easy cupcakes).

Oh baby Nathan how we love you. We have loved watching you grow and learn so many new things. You are such a smart little guy and so hilarious!

Grandpa Holt, cousin Andrew and almost-cousin George shared in the birthday fun.

Nathan spent the evening playing and loving life as a one year old!


All in all it was a great birthday! We are so grateful for this cute little guy! He makes life amazing!
