Joseph is 1!

This past Saturday, October 13th, my sweet, happy, adorable baby boy turned 1 year old.

It is unfathomable to me that he has been with us for a whole year. In fact, I find myself thinking about how exciting his first Christmas is going to be this year. Then I stop myself and realize...this will actually be his second!

We bought Joseph a Mega Blocks workshop as his birthday gift from us, and he loved it!



After some play time, we headed out to Spring Hill Sugar House to pick pumpkins. This farm is fantastic. They have a corn maze, a pick-your-own pumpkin patch, cider pressing, photo-op set-ups, and a fun play area for the children. The day was freezing so we rushed a little, but I still think Joseph enjoyed it.








When we finished, it was home for naps and a walk in the crisp afternoon air. After dinner my parents, sisters, brother-in-law and niece came over for dessert. We sang Happy Birthday, ate homemade chocolate chip cookies, and Joseph opened some presents.


When I put him to bed that night, I held him a little longer than usual. As I cuddled him close, I closed my eyes and thought back to that day 1 year ago, when he entered the world and made us a family of four. It seems like just yesterday, and yet seems so long ago at the same time. His baby-hood is slowly ending, and he's turning into a toddler before our eyes. I can't imagine life without this precious little boy. Happy Birthday little man, Mommy loves you so much!
