Happy Birthday Jackson Lane

Today Jack is ONE YEAR OLD!! There are many celebrations planned ahead...we have a family party this weekend and another party for friends on July 10th. We are so excited we can hardly wait!

Can you believe he is 1? He does so much! He is walking (running more like it!) and he is such a copy cat! He knows what sound the monkey makes and copies it. He knows how to go up and down with his knees when we tell him to. He knows how to raise his hands and cheer while we yell "Gooooal" (world cup). He knows how to put his hand on his mouth and make noise so that it turns the sound of his voice different. He knows how to do chugga chugga choo choo with his arm. He knows how to clap. Omg there is so much this kid knows!

I love when he lights up - he is so excited to walk these days!

I let him watch a little TV for his birthday, Dinosaur Train!

Then we went outside which is favorite thing, he will take your finger and walk you to the front door so that he can go out. Of course he found rocks and wanted to eat them...yucky!
But I had something better to taste... I waited in that long line at Sprinkles so that he could have a cupcake for his special day today :)

I let him have a little frosting, but I ate the top I must admit... ha!
There was plenty left to make a mess with!
Did I do that?
That's ok baby boy, Chico will help you clean up!
What a FUN age!!! He is into everything! But we love it, he is so precious and makes us smile EVERY minute! This year has been amazing. Kevin and I enjoy being parents so much and though its a lot of work, its the best work we have ever done. Jackson you are an amazing son, we love you so much. As Grandma said you have accomplished so much and we are SO proud of you! We can't wait to see all that you do in the future. We will be here right by your side to cheer you on, as we are your BIGGEST fans!
Love Mom & Dad
